Mauritius: Overnight Catamaran Cruise along the West Coast

1. Mauritius: Overnight Catamaran Cruise along the West Coast

After boarding and the captain's briefing, you will set sail to enjoy magnificent views of the island. Admire the glorious sunset for which the West coast of Mauritius is known for.  The catamaran will drop anchor for the night in the lagoon of Ile aux Benitiers, with Le Morne Brabant in the backdrop. Dinner will be served and then you will have free time before going to bed.  The following morning a delicious breakfast will be served. It is then entirely up to the guests if they want to go for another sail or stay in the lagoon for the whole day to relax and enjoy the sun, tan on the sun loungers or on the trampolines or go for a snorkel. After a delicious BBQ lunch the vessel will return to the marina.

A very nice trip with a super cool crew! We saw dolphins, whales and sea turtles. The crew was very attentive. We stopped at nice swimming spots and were able to watch the fish while snorkeling. At lunchtime there was an incredibly good barbecue; with chicken, fish and lobster. We have never eaten such good grilled lobster! Plus lots of side dishes and a delicious dessert! Unfortunately, the island of Benetiers was of little interest. Hundreds of souvenir stalls and many tourists. The sea there is unfortunately only max knee deep and not suitable for swimming. We could have saved ourselves that. But apart from that, it was a wonderful trip that we can absolutely recommend!

The boat ride, the snorkeling, the food, the whale sighting - all just perfect! Beautiful 6 hours! Only the island of Benetiers was too commercial for us and we didn't like it! But we had 30 minutes more for snorkeling and swimming! We would do the trip again in a heartbeat!
