Full description

Discover Amber Island from the water and on land as you paddle across the blue waters of the lagoon. The islet is known for its rich flora which creates shady waterways perfect for exploring by kayak, including the mangroves. Tour the island with a guide and learn more about its history. Start off with a 15-minute kayak expedition from the northern coast of Mauritius (the embarkation point is Bain De Rosnay beach) towards Amber Island. During the paddle, you have the opportunity to explore a floating mangrove forest by kayak. Upon reaching Amber Island, join a guided tour of the isle which also includes a nature walk, and see ruins dating back to 1750. Before heading back to shore, swim in the crystalline waters of Ilot Bernache or stay dry and just take in the beautiful views. This tour is experienced via kayak and a small boat depending on your level of comfort and fitness. The team of professionals will guide you and ensure your experience is safe and memorable.

We had a wonderful vacation in Mauritius. But without doubt, the kayak tour with Chris was the highlight of our trip. Everything about this tour is just perfect. The location was pretty clear and easy to get to. We started on time. The kayaks and pedals were of excellent quality. Kayaking with Chris was wonderful. He is very friendly, respectful, and fun to be with. He even brought tasty pies and juice. Highly recommended. Would definitely take the tour again in our next trip.

A wonderful tour. The mangrooves at Amber Island are a wonderful place. Just fantastic to go kayaking through the mangrooves. Balm for the soul. Tour guide Christopher just did a great job. Greetings at this point. When the tour was actually over, Christopher offered us to join another group. So we had the opportunity to extend the tour by 2 hours free of charge and drive to the beach L'îlot Bernache. Simply fantastic to visit this beautiful beach far away from the coast with the kayak. Great tour and can only be recommended.

We had great fun today! Chris is a fun and experienced guide and was able to give us a very special experience. The tour takes place with a maximum of 8 people, we had a really cool group with other Europeans! After paddling through the mangroves for some time, you could optionally snorkel halfway for colorful fish. Later we dismounted and could walk around the island a little, there was even water and a little refreshment. Really great! Attention: For people without a car - there is no direct bus route to the meeting point. The nearest station is Goodland. It's best to contact the provider, they'll even pick you up :-) And: you should be a bit fit, current and wind can be a bit challenging. All in all recommendable!
