Excellent activity alongside Kaine and Ludovic, thanks to them. Swimming with the dolphins for a long time (ray also seen), boat trip at the top to finish in style: barbecue on the island of Benitiers in music, day to do and redo

Fabulous trip! We had a great family day - beautiful sea, LOADS of dolphins, great snorkelling, super food, and plenty of drinks all day! The crew were fabulous - really friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommended!

Loved it! Superb crew, they make both both adults and babies feel very welcome. Tasty food and over all a great experience to enjoy beautiful Mauritius from a catamaran.

A really great experience at a fantastic price. The crew was super friendly and attentive. Everything is as described and was one of the best days for us in Mauritius

Pick-up at the top in the hotel lobby. Exceptional day with Gaël and Jimmy, caring and smiling, we recommend this excursion with our eyes closed!
