This cruise is all about making sure you have a full day of true relaxation and fun.

Your Catamaran Ship: Enjoy an unforgettable excursion, cruising experience on a luxury 42 ft Catamaran. This Catamaran is very spacious, has 4 double cabins, 2 bathrooms, and a big living room. It is large (and very popular!) and features flat decks and trampolines for lounging in the sun, a huge shaded cockpit with seating for all passengers, and it offers 360 degree views of the surroundings.

On-Board Sailor! : The catamaran cruise starts at 09.00, departing from Grand Bay. The crew members will make sure to make your time enjoyable, and they will be happy to tell you about local folklore and jokes, and play local Mauritian music which will lift the spirits of all the people on board. The sailing time from Grand Baie to Gabriel Island is approximately 1.5 hours. Sometimes during the cruise you will be able to see whales as well as dolphins. If this happens, the crew will stop the boat, in order for you to observe these great animals from close in their natural environment.

Food and Drinks: At around 12.30 you will enjoy a full delicious BBQ lunch buffet set on the main beach of Gabriel Island. Please note that the menu includes fresh fish, chicken, sausages, pasta, selection of fresh salads and deserts. If you are a vegetarian, please inform us in advance, so we can arrange and cater for your lunch.

Gabriel Island: Also known as Îlot Gabriel, is located near Round Island and the Flat island, at the extreme north of Mauritius, about 10 kilometers north of Cap Malheureux. Gabriel Island is a protected natural reserve. It is most famous for its beautiful unspoiled beaches, with crystal clear water surrounding the entire island. It is a very popular site for snorkelers, and also offers great dive sites.

After lunch you can choose to stay on the beautiful white sand beaches, enjoy a sun bath or a nice walk on the 1 hour hiking trail surrounding the Island. This amazing paradise island is the perfect setting for a relaxing day of sun worship. Undoubtedly a great place to enjoy a day of relaxation and fun on one of the picture-postcard beaches or enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the sea. So make sure you have your sunscreen on and your camera at-hand, you will want to immortalise the moments spent there.

At around 15.00, you will leave Gabriel Island, heading back to Grand Bay. During the sail back you will enjoy light snacks, the bar services and the live music. Expected arrival time back to Grand Bay is 16.00.

Trip 2 - Full day Swimming with Dolphins including visit to Benitiers Island

Enjoy a Full-day activity cruising on a speedboat, including a visit to Benitiers Island and delicious lunch. You will have a unique experience of swimming with dolphins in their natural surroundings. An activity that will stay vivid in your memories forever.

Early morning for calm waters: you will begin this day early in the morning. That is because early morning is when the sea is the most calm and when the dolphins come around to play, not shying away. Once you get on board the speed boat, the skipper will brief you on the experience you are about to have and on the day itinerary. Then you will be off for a wonderful two and half hours in the open sea with the dolphins! For 2 and a half hours you will be at sea, completely disconnected from worldly worries and just admiring the vast blue ocean.

Swim with the Dolphins: the west coast is particularly renowned for whales and dolphin watching. As part of this package you will do more than just watch them, you will get to swim amongst the friendly dolphins. Swimming with dolphins is an incredibly moving experience which will bring you into contact with strikingly beautiful scenery, unspoiled landscapes and wonderful animals. You’ll plunge into the remarkable world of these marine mammals and come face to face with the dolphins. Unlike many other dolphin facilities that limit a swim with dolphins to pools or shallow water encounters, you will have the unique opportunity to enter the dolphins’ natural environment and enjoy an encounter with the dolphins in the open sea.

Next Stop, Benitiers Island! After the 2.5 hours outing with the dolphins, you will be traveling to L’ile aux Benitiers (Benitiers Island). On the way to Benitiers Island the boat will stop for you to enjoy some snorkeling and swimming inside the lagoon. As part of the snorkeling you will be able to discover the reef from close, see many corals and plenty of colorful fish. Then the boat will continue its cruise heading south for a visit to the famous Crystal Rock which stands out in the middle of the lagoon. You will then get off the boat at Benitiers Island where you will have lunch and free time for you to enjoy on this beautiful Island.
