Full description
Discover Amber Island from the water and on land as you paddle across the blue waters of the lagoon. The islet is known for its rich flora which creates shady waterways perfect for exploring by kayak, including the mangroves. Tour the island with a guide and learn more about its history. Start off with a 15-minute kayak expedition from the northern coast of Mauritius (the embarkation point is Bain De Rosnay beach) towards Amber Island. During the paddle, you have the opportunity to explore a floating mangrove forest by kayak. Upon reaching Amber Island, join a guided tour of the isle which also includes a nature walk, and seeing ruins dating back to 1750. Before heading back to shore, swim in the crystalline waters of Ilot Bernache or stay dry and just take in the beautiful views. This tour is experienced via kayak and a small boat depending on your level of comfort and fitness. The team of professionals will guide you and ensure your experience is safe and memorable.

We had a great time kayaking with Christopher. We had this booked for our first whole day in Mauritius and it was great to hear about the history of the area and about Mauritius generally. Christopher made us feel very welcome and was friendly and easy to get along with. The activity itself isnt too strenuous but is a good enough workout. Highly highly highly recommend!!

If there is one activity that you want to do in Mauritius this would be it. Absolutely amazing experience kayaking around mangroves with our tour guide Christopher and doing a pitstop in Amber Island. Christopher took us to some beautiful spots for some lovely pictures and was incredibly understanding and patient when we were late for the activity. Overall one of my best experiences in Mauritius.

A highly recommended tour. Our guide Christoph was super nice and explained everything to us. Since we were the only ones who had booked the tour, we went as a "private" tour. We enjoyed this very much, the weather was good (just a bit windy). Unfortunately it wasn't 5 hours, as in the description, but only 2.5 hours.
