Live authenticity and discover our island on a different angle from the lagoon... The program of our boat trips is formatted to spend a maximum of relaxation and pleasure on a comfortable ship. This is why our choice fell on a lagoon only navigation. For EVASION Tour (from 10:30 to 16:00): Up to 6 passengers. After a short ride on the lagoon, we anchored on a sandy bottom and a local aperitif ‘MAITAI’ is served with toast. less
