Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Step aboard the catamaran and look up at the Black River mountain range and the mythical Morne Mountain, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the calm blue waters of the West, complete relaxation awaits.  Depart from The Morne Anglers Club at 9:15 AM and head to Tamarin Bay. Here, you can try to spot the dolphins. Then, take a leisurely sail in direction of Crystal Rock and stop on the way for some snorkeling and swimming next to the coral reef. Once you arrive at Crystal Rock, you may have another swim while the crew is preparing a delicious BBQ. After lunch, you will be able to spend 40 minutes discovering Ilot Benitier. There is a tender boat at your disposal to take you to the island. Sail back to the Black River and arrive at approximately 3:30 PM.

    Well organized, procedure explained, whole crew super nice and motivated! Enough choice of drinks, average lunch. Stay on the island too short because only time at souvenir stands (take money) is possible and not for swimming in a quieter corner. Snorkeling should have taken longer BUT despite everything, it was a cool, fun and exciting day !! ... and we saw dolphins :) Despite 23 guests on the catamaran no tight spaces.

    Great trip, Excellent crew

    The crew on this Catamaran cruise made the trip extra nice. They follow a strict protocol for safety and instructions to make sure nothing is missed and they are always paying attention to the safety and the comfort of the passengers. We started off lucky, 10+ dolphins came to surface from under our catamaran. Lunch was good and enough was provided. Also catering during the day for drinks was excellent. The crew topped it of for me and my family by taking us to our appartment dock with a private boat ride. Very much appreciated and a dream end to an awesome day!!
