This trip is a absolute must when visiting Mauritius!! We had a fantastic day, our guide/pilot was Oliver and he was fantastic. We had such a fun day visiting all the beautiful sites, being surrounded by the beautiful blue lagoon. We were so lucky that we came across a huge pod of dolphins and it was spectacular to see. Oliver kept the special Mauritian coffee flowing throughout the day!! The weather was amazing as well which made the trip even better, I tried snorkeling for the first time which was a great experience. We enjoyed the lobster lunch, the food kept coming and our drinks were topped up the whole time. We arrived at the Tino Boats office at 8.30am and were driven down to harbour, on the return they told us we would be dropped back at the office and the driver kindly dropped us back at our hotel as it was only 5 minutes away.

Amazing activity definitely value for money best activity we done in Mauritius. We saw monkeys, dolphins and whilst snorkelling encountered turtles. Amazing tour guide very knowledgeable and lovely and all islands we visited had different things to see. The lunch was also amazing and so was the service
