Luxurious Catamaran Cruise/ Speedboat to Flat Island Including Gourmet Lunch on a Private Beach

This cruise is all about enjoying a unique luxurious catamaran cruise, which includes a delicious dining experience at a top class restaurant located on Flat Island in a breathtaking location.

The Governor’s house is a grill restaurant situated on a private beach of Flat Island and operated with much skill and class by one of the best hotels of Mauritius.

A major highlight of the cruise is the spectacular scenery of the Northern islands of Mauritius including the Gunner’s Quoin (Coin De Mire island), Gabriel Island, Round Island, Serpent Island, and of course Flat Island which is the destination of this cruise.

The cruise starts at 09:00, departing from Public Beach, Grand Baie.

After departure a light breakfast is served where you can enjoy a selection of pastries, toasts and fruits together with coffee and tea. This is an ideal light breakfast to 'kick off' a great island cruise day experience.

The vessel will set sail in the direction of Gunner’s Quoin Island (Coin De Mire island), and then to Flat Island.

The crew members will make sure your time is enjoyable, providing you with personal service throughout the cruise.

The cruise takes you along the North coast of Mauritius, sailing past Fort Malartic, Cap Malheureux and other important historical sites until reaching the high sea cliffs of Gunner’s Quoin. The Gunner’s Quoin Island with its high sea cliffs towering into the sky is quite a remarkable site. These cliffs serve as nesting grounds to large colonies of tropic birds including the famous national bird of Mauritius.

After approximately one and half hours of easy cruising, the vessel will reach its destination and stop sailing at the lagoon between Flat Island and Gabriel Island. Both islands are Government-declared Nature Reserves and are situated with very close proximity from each other (distance of 750 meters between the islands).

Upon reaching Flat Island you will be transferred from Flat Island’s main beach a distance of about 1km to the northern part of Flat Island where you will spend the day on the private beach of the Governor’s house.

The private beach features pristine white sand, crystal clear turquoise waters, beautiful coral reefs for you to discover, rich birdlife, and spectacular coastal scenery. There you will have access not only to the beach but also to all the facilities of the restaurant such as the beach bar, the VIP lounge, luxurious sun-beds, hammocks, shower and toilet.

For lunch (Silver & Gold Packages only), you will have your own private dining table, shaded and overlooking the sea. All along you will continue to enjoy a selection of refreshments, which will be served before and after lunch.

Lunch will be served around 13h00 at the Governor’s House restaurant. The restaurant offers a magical setting on a private beach at the north of Flat Island overlooking Round Island and Snake Island – the most distant islands of Mauritius.

The design of the Governor’s House restaurant is very unique; it is actually an old ruin, dating from the 19th century, which was brought to life with much style for providing all its visitors a very unique dining experience. So make the most of the day and let yourself be pampered in the right islander royalty way!

VIP Exclusivity

The Luxury Flat Island Catamaran Cruise & Optional Gourmet Lunch package is available for you to experience on an exclusive basis as well. Book the whole cruise to Flat Island for your loved ones and yourself only and enjoy the ultimate leisure day.

With the exclusive option you will get to chill on the catamaran freely, surrounded by your favourite people while cruising in the beautiful Mauritian waters.
