Let this Catamaran cruise to Gabriel Island, the very first among all catamaran cruise being organized in Mauritius be the highlights of your holiday in Mauritius. This is the best, oldest and cheapest among all our catamaran cruises.

A day trip to Gabriel Island is the most outstanding catamaran sea excursion to do during a stay in Mauritius. It is the very first catamaran cruise ever organized in Mauritius. It is an excursion which is very much appreciated by Mauritian as well as foreigners. We start this business some 30 years ago and thanks to this long time experience we can assure of providing the best service which would satisfy the most difficult client!
Today, several companies or as well as individuals propose this cruise in Mauritius but does all of them care for the satisfaction of their clients or just act as a money making machine? For example, there is company in Grand Bay which pull down their price to such a low rate that no one can compete with them! Their price is so incredibly low that it sound too good to be true! But does their service really good? We have met clients who told us that they don’t deliver the good. They promise stars and moon but at the end of the day nothing! They would prefer to pay more but get a better service. Of course when you cut on the price you are inevitably forced to cut on quality also, it’s logic.
We are proud to tell that, as a pioneer in the activity, we have a well organized program for this activity, to make everyone spend an unforgettable day outing with our well trained team.
Your day with our team on the catamaran start by a joyful briefing full of jokes when each member will be introduced to you. This will take place in the Bay of Grand Bay. They will also explain to you about how the trip will be and things to do or not to do on the boat. Then the sailing begin toward Gabriel Island while you will be sipping a drink. Around 11/2 hours sailing will be necessary to reach the destination. Half-way the catamaran will pass by the Gunner’s Coin, an islet with very steep cliff in which nest straw tail birds. You will also be able to see the famous ‘Trou Madame’ (woman’s hole) (oh yes! Mauritian people sometime give funny names) and maybe some dolphins, sailing fishes, turtles or even whales!
After the sailing navigation, you will find yourself overwhelmed by beauty of the spot where your catamaran will anchor. It’s simply beautiful! You will find yourself just in the middle of nowhere in a nice romantic environment with lots of variation of bleu all around.
The captain of your boat will give some description and safety instruction about the area where you are before transferring you to the sandy beach of Gabriel island where you will stay for more than one hour.
Being in a place some 17 kilometers away from Mauritius and its pollution, of course, offer some very pristine marine life to enjoy during snorkeling or you can just spend your time just lazing on the beach and getting a nice sunbath
Back on the boat for lunch where you will have an open buffet of grilled food, varieties of salad, rice, pasta and bread to choose from. Your lunch will be accompanied be live music played by a musician. Best moment of the day will be just after lunch, when the crew member will organize a live party on the boat where you will be initiated to dance the Mauritian traditional dance, the ‘sega’
Till 2h30 pm you will have some more time to snorkel around. Then the boat will start to move back towards Grand Bay.
This trip is the best among all catamaran cruises organize in Mauritius and it is the cheapest also.
If there is something you want do in Mauritius which will highlight your holiday, then do this one. It is highly recommended but not for people who are sensible to sea sick. For such persons it is better that they choose destinations like Ile aux Cerfs or Benitier island
