Full description

Explore Mauritius' 3 Northern Isles in just one day on this full-day catamaran cruise. Marvel at Mauritius' very own island getaways, government-declared nature reserves featuring pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and beautiful coral gardens. Enjoy tea, coffee, and cake upon arrival at the catamaran Wind Dancer, then depart from Grand Baie Public Beach after the captain's briefing.

Cruise easily for approximately 1 hour on the way to the magical Flat Island. Visit the island before returning to the catamaran for a sumptuous BBQ lunch and drinks. After lunch, explore the beauty of Gabriel Island. Snorkel in the lovely lagoon, or simply laze in the sun on the beautiful sandbar that Gabriel Island is best known for. On the return journey to Grand Bay, make a stop at the natural aquarium of Coin de Mire and swim and snorkel among a multitude of colorful reef fish. The catamaran arrives back in the bay in the afternoon. Both shared and private options are available for this tour.

Catamaran in good condition. Heavy seas, I think it's better to be on this type of boat than on a speed boat even if it saves travel time. Very correct meal (potato salad, pasta, grilled chicken and fish and pineapple for dessert) but not practical to eat on your knees packed in the middle of the catamaran! Many people in the same place for the second island, it was really "herd" it takes away the charm of the place and you have to pay attention to the boats arriving (1st island we were in the first to disembark, we saw the crowd come next!)

A must try experience. Quite long journey to get to the two islands (about 1h30), if it's a windy day, as happened to us, the journey is a bit rough due to the waves, but all the crew is well trained and professional, the only thing I would say not recommended for those who suffer from the boat; however once you get to île Plate and îlot Gabriel, you will see that it is definitely worth it. Delicious lunch cooked by the boys of the crew. On the way back they will take you to a great spot for snorkelling.

The perfect trip! All arrangements work well, good food and not too many people. This catamaran left at 8 a.m. and was the first to arrive on the island, so it was great to experience the wonderful white sand paradise for a moment in peace. Good snorkeling and a lot of different fish and a turtle was also seen.
