      Recommendation!
      The catamaran trip to Ilot Plat and Ilot Gabriel was wonderful. The sea was quite rough with high waves, but the good-humored, confident and very experienced crew made sure that we felt safe at all times. The crew took very good care of seasick participants. In general, the crew was very attentive and Tool good care of us. The snorkeling experience on the islands was great. We saw a Lot of species that we had not Seen on the beaches around Mauritius so far. The procedure was as follows in our case: Trip to Ilot Gabriel Approx. 1.5 h stay at Ilot Gabriel Lunch (very tasty and varied) Approx. 1h stay at Ilot Plat Drive to Gunner's Coin Approx. 20 min snorkeling off the cliffs Return journey We would recommend taking a rain jacket with you, as you may get a shower or two on the boat in heavy swell. It can also get cold after snorkeling in your wet swimsuit on the return trip if you don't have the best weather

      Great experience definitely recommend
      This was an amazing experience we thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling in the ocean (gear was thankfully provided) the catamaran ride itself was a thrilling experience and our Skipper "Pascal" was a great cook so the lunch was delicious. Overall it was worth every penny although one slight detail for future travellers the ad is outdated since they take you to see dolphins and not the waterfall. But definitely go for it!

      An awful cruise
      I am very disappointed of this cruise. 1) I booked the cruise for the 26th of April. They asked me to anticipate it on the 25th, even if the forecast were not good. As I predicted the weather was always cloudy, not allowing us to appreciate the true colors of nature. 2) We couldn't see the waterfalls described on the website because the skiper told me that the weather condition didn't allow to do that. 3) the snorkelling was a fake. Nothing better than that you can do at any beach of Mauritius. 3) the island was crouded of people and boats and the water was so dirty that was almost impossible to swim 4) the skipper kept the rithmic music loud during all the trip, despite I requested many times to drop down the volume to enjoy the noise of the sea waves and relax. I do not reccommend this crouse. It is a waste of time and money.

      ITS WITIIN THEIR RIGHTS
      ITS WITIIN THEIR RIGHTS. We didn't actually end up joining the cruise. The night before was a raging wind the next day was then unsettled winds. I am just 6 miles up the coast and the that morning there where NO boats in our lagoon , even with a microclimate the conditions would not have been favourable, my wife is nervous at the best of times so i informed them a few hours before we would not be joining them. I was informed that there would be no refund. I have no problem with that, its the terms and conditions. Its 'within their rights'. However it is also within their rights to choose to give a partial refund if they want. They just didnt want, We didnt eat the food, we didnt drink the beer, the boat was going out anyway ( as they told me) - I am not questioning there safety assessment, i am sure there was no risk of accidents , but as far as comfort and interest in the customer experience is concerned. 👎 I also wonder how many others are offered the 'upgrade' to the smaller catamaran a few days before due to maintenance. Probably everyone!

      A pointless trip to a distant island with a very barren beach
      My wife and I took this trip today. Departure is 9.00 from the Marina in Grand Baie and return by 16.00. The journey of 2 hours was comfortable and interesting, with a great, newish boat and drinks available all the way (and back). Having been on many of these cruises before, especially from Bali, Indonesia, this is where the comparison ends. Gabriel Island has nothing but a sandy beach on the edge of a nature reserve. There are no toilets to be seen, nowhere to buy drinks or snacks. Nothing! And, if it rains, which it did today, there is nowhere to seek cover. We were all drenched in a rain storm. There is no jetty on which to disembark. Transfer to and from the island's beach is by way of little rubber dinghies. Getting on and off these dinghies on the beach is precarious, especially for older people. The barbecue is held on the boat and is ready for the return trip, rather than on the beach! Unless you simply like a trip on the sea in a catamaran for over 8 hours, this service is a waste of time and money. While some of the staff were helpful, others were very condescending and impatient to elderly customers.

      Definitely worth a visit for some beautiful views and beaches
      Beautiful beaches and mountains Contrast between prosperity and poverty Roads bad signs poor Plenty of action cities on offer Some disgusting dirty beaches Great boat trips Lovely people Stayed away from resorts Relatively good value Long flight but air Mauritius were good Traffic bad in Port Louis Nice creole food Weather hot but rainy ( intermittently ) in March

      It was a great experience. Good service from the crew and food was divine. It’s one of those experiences you don’t want to miss in Mauritius.

      Mediocre
      The service was excellent and the crew was very friendly. The beach visit was disappointing. Enormous amount of rocks in the sand which made the swimming uncomfortable. The food on the boat was very mediocre.

    We had a fabulous day trip in a private speed boat with Neptune Cruises. The boat captain John Paul, young and energetic was helpfully courteous making our day trip worth the expense. The exclusive lunch set up at IIle aux island beach was an experience to remember. Neptune also assisted us in enjoying water sports. All in all they are a professional & hospitable agency to go for on eastern coast of Mauritius.

    This full day cruise to ilot Benitiers was the definitely one of the best activity we did during our trip. While the cruise itself allows you to enjoy the awesome scenary of Mauritius, the courteous service by the staff makes it many times enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to be a must to-do activity for anyone visiting Mauritius.

    Simply, this was just a fun outing on a boat with other seafaring tourists. Ours was a full boat - about 24 people, but we all fit together with enough space. We did the tour to Ile aux Benetiers, launching from the west side of the island. We got to see a pod of dolphins who were showing off by doing flips in the air. There was a stop to snorkel where they provide equipment. Then they grilled a very very good lunch for us on the boat! Excellent prawns, fish kebabs, chicken, rice, all the drinks we want. We could get off and walk around Ile aux Benetiers, which itself was kind of meh -- rows of picnic areas, and tethered motorboats close to shore, so it is not really suitable for lounging on the beach or even going swimming because it was crowded between structures, boats, and tourists. The crew on the boat were great -- super friendly and professional.

    We where invited on day cruise aboard a Catamaran and the experience was fantastic. Have to admit that have been in numerous catamaran cruises on the island, but this was by far the BEST. The catamaran was on a tip top condition, spotless clean and immaculate. The skipper and his two helpers were real professionals, helpful and absolutely discreet. The lunch offered on board and prepared by them was excellent. To mention that during all the process, the hygiene was impeccable.
    What can I say...thumbs up to the entire team!

    We are a familiy of 5 and we decided to hire a catamaran for the day rather than booking a trip and sharing the boat with 30 other people. We probably paid an extra £40-£50 each extra doing this but it was definitely worth it. There were two crew members who made sure our drinks were topped up and were happy for us to help ourselves if we wanted. Beer, wine and soft drinks were included and a BBQ lunch of chicken, fish and salad. Snorkelling equiptment was kept on the boat and looked brand new,
    We left at 9.30am and spent some time looing for dolphins we then snorkelled in turquoise waters with Le Morne as the backdrop which is stunning. We then sailed to see the crystal rock before being picked up by a speed boat and taken to Benitiers Island for half an hour. We then returned to the catamaran to sail back along the coast and arrived back at approximately 3.30pm.
    I would definitely recommend this trip it was one of our favorite days.

    As a traveller who has mild walking issues (with a bad knee) it was important to me to have an excursion where I could enjoy the beauty of Mauritius without a lot of walking. The trip picks you up in a private car and takes you directly to the catamaran without needing to walk to the dock. The catamran is spacious and comfortable with toilets and crew that serve you snacks and unlimited drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic) including rose and white wine! When you get to the island, the crew help you from the boat and onto the beach. The island is wonderful and has bars, restaurants and of course toilets. The trip provides snorkelling and the crew can help you to do this. I would thoroughly recommend this for people with walking problems and for elderly people too.

    Pricilla was extremely kind in arranging then re-arranging our exclusive 6 person cruise from Grand Baie. The catamaran "Copper Sunset" was 11 years old but very luxurious and in good condition. The Captain and Mate were very obliging and served a tasty lunch. We spent valuable time alongside the Dolphins and anchored in clear tropical waters. All 6 family members were very grateful for a delightful day onboard on this the most successful catamaran cruise ever!!!!

    While we were in Mauritius we booked this tour through Summer Times, Quoni at our Hotel. They picked us up and took us on a short journey to the port. We had a great day on the Catamaran. We were a little worried that the sea maybe choppy but it was very calm and enjoyable. The crew on board were very helpful and couldn’t do enough for you. Plenty of drinks and snacks going round. We really enjoyed the whole thing. I would really recommend this.
