It was okay, expected more for the money and based on the reviews
Helen_M, Jan 2023
The boat trip was okay. It was great to see the dolphins and the crew were free flowing with the drinks. But otherwise, we didn't travel that far, the food was okay (no dessert, tea or coffee) and the boat travelling REALLY slow.... It felt like they were just using up the time.... Could have been half the time to be honest. Snorkelling stuff was decent quality though.
Go for it!
James_K, Oct 2022
Loved this! Perfect day trip- not overcrowded like the other boats. Plenty of opportunities to snorkel and visit Bénitiers which has a market on it. Increíble blue waters, staff very attentive with drinks and very helpful. Food with BBQ cooked very well and safe! :)

Great way to spend a sunny day!
Ava_S, Aug 2022
Good tour with a very nice crew. Food was good but not a big menu for vegetarians except of rice, salad and baguette. If you’re lucky with the weather it’s really nice and hopefully sou can see dolphins! I can really recommend.
Great experience

Great experience. Friendly and helpful crew, great food and plenty drinks. We were lucky to see a lot of dolphins and the visit to the island was a welcoming break.

Thank you for your visit.
Value for money
sporwal, Feb 2020
Amazing views, perfect yacht and great hospitality by the staff on-board. Overall a must must do !!! One recommendation, once you book through viator, make sure to call the cruise company directly for any dietary requirement because all the instructions you put in through Viator dont exactly reach them. In our case the cruise company did make some last minute arrangements for our group of vegetarians, but maybe if they had prior information, it would have been even better.

The best day

We had a day cruise with JPH and the team was amazing; very friendly and helpful. We were able to swim and snorkel around the boat. We say dolphins close up and had a great BBQ on board, the food was fabulous. We were dropped on a beach for an hour which was also great, there was shade if you needed it.

Excellent moment
Franois_P, May 2022
Très bonne journée passée sur le catamaran ! Le personnel est adorable et les nombreuses activités vous laisseront un très bon souvenir de l'île Maurice. Beaucoup de poissons vus lors du snorkeling et des dauphins ! Le repas le midi (poissons, saucisses et poulet grillés) est très bon. La visite comprend également un tour sur la belle Île des Bénitiers et une approche du Crystal Rock. Merci pour cette journée qui vaut vraiment le coup !

Merci beaucoup d'avoir choisi JPH. Au plaisir de vous accueillir très bientôt
Professionelle entspannte und super hilfsbereite freundliche Crew
Tanja_L, Apr 2022
Tatsächlich war das Erlebnis so vesonders schön, weil qir auf einem wunderschönen Katamaran durch türkisblaues Wasser gesegelt sind, mit sehr netten Leuten aus ganz Europa und mit dieser wundervollen , höchst professionellen Crew , die uns so nett undfreundlich versorgt gaben. Meine Befürchtung, dass es ein Partykatamaran mit vielen Betrunkenen ist, wurde glücklicherweise gar nicht erfüllt. Es war lustig,entspannt, fröhlich, gediegen mit Musik und am Ende ein boschen Tanz😉 Leider haben wir keine Delfine gesehen,aber dafür kann kein etwas, die machen wassie wollen🐬 ich würde sofort wieder bei diesem Veranstalter buchen.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thank you very much for sailing with us. hope to welcome you soon on board
Virkelig verdt å bruke en dag på dette
AnnIren_H, Dec 2019
Er dere usikre på hva dere skal gjøre på Mauritius er dette en aktivitet vi virkelig kan anbefale! Turen startet med å lete etter delfiner, og heldigvis fant vi en hel flokk, så det ble en del bilder:) Etter ca 30-45 min dro vi videre for å snorkle. Føltes ganske eventyrlig å svømme i krystallklart vann med mange fargerike fisker som svermet rundt en. Når vi var ferdig med å snorkle gikk ferden videre til en liten turistøy. Her kunne du velge å handle i noen av turistbodene, eller bare vandre langs stranden. Når vi kom tilbake til båten var det også mulighet til å bade litt mer, før kursen ble satt hjemover. Mellom disse stoppene var det satt av god tid for å slappe av og sole seg på båten. Fra vi gikk ombord på morgenen til vi gikk av på kvelden, ga crewet oss en fantastisk service. Vi fikk til stadighet spørsmål om vi ønsket noe å drikke, det ble delt ut frukt og ca halvveis i turen fikk vi en kjempegod grillmiddag med fisk, kylling,brød og ris.Tusen takk for at dere ga oss en flott opplevelse som virkelig fristet til gjentagelse!
