For a truly unforgettable tropical island experience, why not add a private overnight catamaran cruise as part of your luxury Mauritius holiday? Lasting 2 days (1 overnight), you'll have your own skipper and crew for a tailor-made cruise enjoying sublime sunsets, relaxing on the trampoline deck to the sound of lapping water, as well as swimming in crystal-clear lagoon waters. Altogether, a completely different and memorable view of Mauritius, perfect perhaps if you are celebrating a honeymoon or special anniversary.
After breakfast and a pre-departure briefing by your Captain, set sail from Grand Baie at around 9am for Flat Island and Gabriel Island in the Northern Isles. These are two protected sanctuaries with excellent opportunities for snorkelling, kayaking, trekking and bird watching. After lunch prepared by the crew on board, the afternoon is spent sailing the west coast of Mauritius to Tamarin Bay and the Black River. Dinner and night aboard in the Black River lagoon.
After an early breakfast, day 2 starts with the chance to swim with dolphins in Tamarin Bay. They frequently congregate here in the mornings and it's an amazing experience if you are lucky enough to be in the water with them. Your cruise then continues by sailing in front of Le Morne Mountain, Mauritius' most famous landmark, and then on to Ile aux Benitiers with some free time for swimming and snorkelling. After lunch on board in the sparkling waters of Crystal Rock, it's a gentle afternoon cruise back up the west coast via the Turtle Bay Marine Park to Grand Baie for a late afternoon arrival.
Throughout the cruise, the skipper will propose various activities and the best locations for swimming and snorkelling, as well as visits on land. The itinerary shown is a guide and can be modified slightly subject to personal wishes, although the final timings and route are subject to the skipper's discretion. The expert Mahlatini team will tailor this experience into your entire holiday including stays at the luxury Mauritius resorts of your choice. We can also arrange many other unique Mauritius experiences and activities to make your holiday even more memorable.
