The tour first took us to the waterfall and then to a small sand island. We were all alone on this island. Then we went snorkeling. Then it went to the Ile aux Cerfs. Since it was a private tour, we were not at the booth section where most of the tourists were, but on a private beach. The 3-course menu included in the package was exceptionally good - but the drink prices were a little overpriced. It was a really great day !!!

Absolutely wonderful!

This excursion was fabulous from start to finish. Our skipper was adorable, he really took the time to know what our desires were for D-Day and knew how to modulate this day according to our expectations. The lunch was excellent and the setting sumptuous. Very very pleasant surprise, my daughters and my wife loved it. I recommend without hesitation. A very nice memory of vacation and family!

Start was a bit difficult to find. But they tried to help us when we were at the wrong point. The motorboat tour was great. Of particular note is the BBQ meal on the beach in the golf hotel. Was very exclusive!
