Full description
Step aboard the catamaran and look up at the Black River mountain range and the mythical Morne Mountain, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the calm blue waters of the West, complete relaxation awaits.  Depart from The Morne Anglers Club at 9:15 AM and head to Tamarin Bay. Here, you can try to spot the dolphins. Then, take a leisurely sail in direction of Crystal Rock and stop on the way for some snorkeling and swimming next to the coral reef. Once you arrive at Crystal Rock, you may have another swim while the crew is preparing a delicious BBQ. After lunch, you will be able to spend 40 minutes discovering Ilot Benitier. There is a tender boat at your disposal to take you to the island. Sail back to the Black River and arrive at approximately 3:30 PM.

    Very friendly crew, welcome, meals, atmosphere, everything was perfect. We saw dolphins despite the weather being a little overcast in Tamarin Bay, but the sun was shining once we sailed towards Crystal Rock and the Benitiers islet. We preferred the trip on the catamaran and snorkeling, moderately the small annex boat that takes you to the island of benitiers because we drop you there for 1 hour (open-air market, tourist attraction to buy souvenirs ..)

    It was a wonderful experience. We saw Dolphins very close to our catamaran. Glad we were not allowed to jump but enjoy the view of the wild dolphins from the boat without disturbing them too much. We also did snorkelling and saw the Crystal Rock and visited the island of Ile Le Benetiers. The crew were very friendly and very helpful. The food was awesome, although it said BBQ, it was very vegetarian and vegan friendly and really tasty. The hospitality was great and overall it was a very pleasant experience. Totally worth it!

    It was one of the best trips we have been on. The service was top notch, the staff were happy and sweet. They were always ready to help. There was never a shortage of drink, they were constantly walking around and making sure you had everything you needed. The food was absolutely delicious. The places we visited were beautiful and the timing was perfect!
