Full description

Explore Mauritius' 3 Northern Isles in just one day on this full-day catamaran cruise. Marvel at Mauritius' very own island getaways, government-declared nature reserves featuring pristine white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and beautiful coral gardens. Enjoy tea, coffee, and cake upon arrival at the catamaran Wind Dancer, then depart from Grand Baie Public Beach at 8 AM after the captain's briefing.

Cruise easily for approximately 1 hour on the way to the magical Flat Island. Visit the island before returning to the catamaran for a sumptuous BBQ lunch and drinks. After lunch, explore the beauty of Gabriel Island. Snorkel in the lovely lagoon, or simply laze in the sun on the beautiful sandbar that Gabriel Island is best known for. On the return journey to Grand Bay, make a stop at the natural aquarium of Coin de Mire and swim and snorkel among a multitude of colorful reef fish. The catamaran arrives back in the bay at 4:30 PM.

Well worth doing if in grand Baie. We saw whales, giant turtles and when snorkeling saw a variety of tropical fish. Flat Island and Gabriel island are like paradise islands. Like something from Tom Hanks in Castaway. The bbq beers and snacks on board were plentiful. All in all a great day out

Great excursion, but different than advertised due to the weather. But it was agreed in advance. Crew very nice and accommodating. Food very tasty, even if the breakfast is very small. Unfortunately, finding the catamaran was very difficult, as it only arrived at 7.45 a.m. and was therefore not to be found in advance. Tour itself absolutely recommendable *****

I have been been on other cruises before, but really can commend Wind Dancer from start to finish. They were very Accommodating with regard to schedule changes for unexpected reasons,l. Also, I was travelling with a companion with visual impairment and some balance problems - the crew were absolutely fantastic and so gracious in their handling of the situation. Every effort was made to ensure that we all had a fantastic day - yummy food, friendly crew, a cool catamaran, etc etc. I certainly will only use Wind Dancer in future if I want to do the north again. And will recommend them to family and Friends.
