  • Full-Day Cruise to Ile aux Cerfs with BBQ Lunch Included

    1. Full-Day Cruise to Ile aux Cerfs with BBQ Lunch Included

    Climb aboard the 45-foot catamaran "Island Hopper" and cruise from Pointe Jerome to the privately owned island of Ile aux Cerfs. Arrive at an amazing snorkeling spot to either swim in the calm waters or snorkel with the colorful reef fish. Soak up the glorious sun or simply relax away from the crowds. Then, enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch prepared and served by the friendly crew on board the boat. Get some free time to explore Ile aux Cerfs independently. Go for a walk along the spectacular beaches or just sit back and relax before sailing back to Pointe Jerome with a chilled drink in your hand.

    The snorkeling was a lot of fun. The atmosphere on the boat was great with music and BBQ. The only things I would change are having more time at Ile Aux Cerfs. I felt like more time there would have made it better. Also another negative would be that I felt like I was overcharged for the transfer. The company should have told me that the meeting point was within walking distance from my hotel. No need to sit in a car for a 5-minute trip when I could just walk there.

We had Shane as our tour guide and because we knew very little about Mauritius he organised our day for us. He gave us information about each place we visited and fully answered our questions about the island without bombarding us with too much information. He was also accomodating with our requests. We found the tour easy and informative. Shane was excellent both as a tour guide and a driver.

This was so much fun and the views were just amazing. Our guide was a real professional and I really suggest to go with him or at least take some other professional guide with you. It isn't very easy hike.

We had great tour over the island. Our guide Dipa was super helpful. He was asking about our preferences, what we would like to see, was making a lot of suggestions. Highly recommend!

My driver had a lot of knowledge about the island. The drive wasn't boring at all and I got learn several things about Mauritius on this tour.
