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, beautiful coral gardens, rich birdlife, spectacular coastal scenery, and a casual atmosphere. Enjoy tea, coffee, and cake upon arrival at the catamaran Wind Dancer, then depart from Grand Baie Public Beach at 8 AM after the captain's briefing.

On the was to Go Out all Long warm Rainfall and some high waves please hey so WhatsApp is fun. Hangover in nice snorkeling spots in two islands. Inbetween nice lunch in the boat. Become only 15 people so enough space for everyone. We were Happy and can recommend this trip for full

The tour is definitely worth it. The guides are super friendly and take good care of the guests. Sufficient food and drinks are included (included in the price). The two islands are beautiful, unfortunately the time on site passes very quickly ... The trips there and back take about 1.5 hours, on the way back there is a stop at a nice snorkeling spot at the Coin de Mire, where it is there are many different fish and sea turtles to see (the fish are fed, however). If you have problems with waves, you should have a travel tablet or similar beforehand. take, because the catamaran is already rocking on the open sea. You still feel safe, it may only hit your stomach a little. We would do the tour again at any time, certainly two of the most beautiful spots on and around Mauritius.

Perfectly organized, very nice crew, you drive to the islands earlier like the other excursion boats and so have half an hour lonely before it gets any more. Absolutely. Incredible good food on board !! Price performance is very good here! (Even a trip to the hotel a lot more expensive!)
