Loved it!!
Nicolene_v, Dec 2022
Amazing day!! Crew attentive and looks well after guests. Just a fun filled day and relaxed atmosphere...... Money well spend
Perfect adventure
Gaffar_Y, Nov 2022
The whole trip was amazing. Especially the crew was so nice, funny and warm hearted. We had a wonderful trip to Ile aux cerfs where we could parasail (I recommend „top parasailing“ - for a couple it costs total 1.600 Rs) on board we had a great bbq with 4 vegetarian sides, 2 chicken meats and 1 fish option. Drinks such as Coke, Fanta, Water included. Totally worth it price :)

We missed the catamaran...
Karl_P, Oct 2022
We missed the catamaran because traffic was terrible. There was nobody at the departure point (apart from speedboat people who knew nothing) when we got there and also no signage and nobody tried to reach us. Our own fault I guess - but not a great birthday experience.
Nice experience
Naif_A, Aug 2022
Nice crew and great atmosphere. I really liked it. I would recommend it to couples specially in their honey moon

BabyRaphael_N, Aug 2022
It was a wonderful experience. The crew members are professionals and having expertise in their domain. We really enjoyed the trip.
A great day out!
Brian_F, Aug 2022
We travelled on the catamaran with Rudi, Scott and Pascal. They were all great, but Scott was absolutely brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was constantly making sure that everyone on board had drinks and was comfortable. The food was nice. Cous Cous, chicken, fish, sausages, potatoes and salad was on the menu and there was plenty to go around for everyone. We had about 20-30 minutes snorkelling and it was a good, clear spot with plenty of fish to be seen. The catamaran was in very good order and kept very clean. The playlist for the music all day was perfect too. We stopped off on Ile Aux Cerfs for around 80 minutes, but we couldn't do much as the weather was quite bad, which was a shame. On a nice day the stop over would've been beautiful as it's postcard picturesque. Highly recommend this as a day trip.

Cool experience
johan, Jun 2022
It was pretty cool to experience the actual sailing on the catamaran! The crew is very nice and professional. The catamaran itself was large, clean and in good condition. Totally recommended! The island itself we visited, was not what I'd like. But it was a short stop only. The snorkeling was good! Even saw some dolphins during the sailing.

Julio_P, Apr 2022
The trip was fantastic, excellent food and Pascal, Rudy and John were great host- felt very safe and we even saw some dolphins. They were very patient, specially with a stupid woman who wanted to see monkeys on the catamaran, what a joke she was! We had a great time and will definitely come back. thank you
Great trip! The staff...
Nejib_B, Dec 2021
Great trip! The staff were so attentive and nice. The food was good. We did the parachute and enjoyed it. The snorkeling was magnifique (bring your snorkels from hotel). The catamaran was in excellent condition. We would definitely recommend this.

Perfect trip, Cat left on time & brilliant lunch & snorkelling & free time at I'll aux cerfs. The crew could not do enough - highly recommended. Perhaps we could have done some actual sailing, but I understand the timeline. Thanks for an awesome day.

When arriving at the meeting point...
Jennifer H, Oct 2017
When arriving at the meeting point there are many travel operators, have your booking with you and simply ask around for the catamaran cruises/island hopper. Rudi and his crew onboard were very friendly and created a fun atmosphere on the catamaran, they made sure everyone was very well looked after with drinks etc. the snorkelling was great fun and the BBQ onboard was a great experience. The waterfall was small and not so easy to see but the trip down the river was still beautiful. The island of Isle Aux Cerfs is quite busy with tourists, the water was very calm for swimming. Overall a great day out on the catamaran over clear blue waters.
This tour is well worth the money we...
Willem_H, May 2017
This tour is well worth the money we can highly recommend it for a day out. From the start in Mahebourg till our return late afternoon was a wonderful experience. We were spoiled throughout the day by the very professional and friendly catamaran crew.
Great catamaran cruise. Lovely boat...
Andrew J, Jun 2016
Great catamaran cruise. Lovely boat. Friendly staff. Only two minor negative points: food could have been better and the snorkelling site was not particularly good as the currents were strong. However, this might have been due to the weather and out of the control of the crew

Gita di coppia
Alice_P, Dec 2022
Staff gentilissimo, accogliente e sempre attento.. Chiedono spesso se va tutto bene e se vuoi da bere.. Giro all'isola dei cervi e tappa, poi, per fare snorkling.. Abbiamo visto anche le cascate (da lontano xke il catamarano è troppo grande e non riesce ad entrare in quella zona). Pranzo molto buono! Una bella giornata!!
Uns hat die Tour sehr gut...
Patrizia_A, Dec 2022
Uns hat die Tour sehr gut gefallen und die Mitarbeiter auf dem Katamaran waren sehr freundlich und aufmerksam
