Overview

What better way to experience the beauty of Mauritius than on a full-day catamaran cruise experience? Set sail and absorb the surreal mountain scenery of the east coast as you cruise the island’s longest and largest lagoon. After a swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters, glide along the Grand River South East to admire its waterfall before enjoying a delicious, onboard lunch with complimentary drinks. Round off a blissful day with free time on the gorgeous beaches of Île aux Cerfs, an island jewel basking off Mauritius’ eastern shores.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide


  • What You Can Expect

    Start your experience in the morning with a pickup from your Mauritius hotel, and travel by air-conditioned coach to Jerome Point on the southeast coast (if transfer option selected). Here, board your catamaran and soak up the magical views as you glide onto Mauritius’ aquamarine seas. Waft over the baby-blue waters and enjoy inspirational views over the surreally shaped mountains that dominate the island’s eastern shores.

    Before long, your catamaran will stop so you can snorkel. Either stay on deck to watch or jump into the lagoon to swim or snorkel amid the beautiful coral beds and colorful tropical fish. Then, dry off on deck and as you cruise to the mouth of the Grand River South East. Here, sail upriver to the famous Grand River waterfall. Stop to take shots of these majestic falls, where roaring waters crash over cliffs across the river.

    After your visit, enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch served on your boat. Savor grilled chicken and fish with rice and mixed salads, followed by fresh fruit, as you enjoy included drinks such as beer, wine and soda.

    Following lunch, relax on deck as your catamaran heads toward Île aux Cerfs, a paradise-like island encircled by white beaches. Enjoy time here to sunbathe, snorkel or enjoy the watersports available (own expense) on some of the beaches.

    Later, board your catamaran and cruise back to Jerome Point. Your experience ends with a drop-off back at your hotel. (if transfer option selected)

Positives:
- fun and friendly skippers
- excellent snorkeling site, very shallow water, lots and lots of types of fish, beautiful corals
- we saw sleeping bats in trees along the river!
- the island is really beautiful, a good place to spend a whole day.
- the food was delicious!
- loved the catamaran, it offers lots of comfortable spots to hang out and bask in the sun

Negatives:
- the waterfall is nice, but not at all as impressive as we had expected
- we only had one hour at Ile aux Cerfs. Not even close to enough.
- the bathroom in the catamaran was very small and uncomfortable airplane bathrooms are way better - I guess that comes with the territory though.
