What people are saying about Mahé

Very beautiful experience, the staff was very nice, answered all our Questions and told us about all the different islands and about the marine life. We fed fish, watched fish and other sea animals through a glas bottom boat, after that we had the chance to snorkel ourselves. The barbeque was also very good and local. For little extra money, you could also see tortoises and feed them. At the end of the day, they let us snorkel a second time. Overall, a very exciting Adventure.☺️

The trip was really great! First we went to Cerf Island to see turtles, then we saw the reef through the glass bottom and then went snorkeling. Then we went to Long Island, where we could walk and swim on the beach. Immediately afterwards we went to the Creole BBQ, which was really delicious! Then we went to another snorkeling spot.

What an incredible tour - so well organized and the staff and crew are so friendly and warm! The boat was beautiful and big. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it. We were a group of 4 couple from South Africa.

Two dream islands not to be missed. Perfect excursion very well organized with a delicious typical Creole lunch in a dream location

Was a very nice trip, the guides were very nice and the food was also very good. Saw lots of fish snorkeling and feeding.
