I booked the catamaran trip and it was an outstanding experience! The crew were professional sailors and know the sea like the back of their hands! Security and service level was worth the money let alone the experience sailing the ocean under set sails sipping champagne and dolphins joining swimming, jumping around us... just great!

Our group of 16 did the safari circuit. We were able to enjoy beautiful views and In addition we had the chance to see several dolphin and to our delight, two wales. We also note that the rum punch and samosas were very good and a must in the service. The point I wish to emphasize is the quality of... More

We went on the Dolphin Safari trip. The first warning sign was the fact that non-French bank cards were not accepted for payment and there was no warning sign regarding this. We thought this was rather odd given that it was a tourist attraction catering for (we thought) international tourists. Then once on board we were shocked to see that... More

I went on the hour and a half sunset cruise with a cocktail and snacks. Even without understanding a word of French I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very friendly crew who went out of their way (with very limited English) to ensure I enjoyed the trip. The sunset was beautiful and the views fantastic.

We took a three hour sailing trip on the luxury Catapassion catamaran. There were two couples plus Pascal the captain and Lorna his assistant. Everything was friendly, fantastic service, felt very safe and in the hands of professionals. Excellent food and drinks served throughout the trip, everything very clean and high quality. Saw the dolphins close up. Really fun time,... More

Despite a delayed departure (by 25 minutes), once we did get going, we had a nice trip to watch a fun school of dolphins having some fun and got lucky with some excellent time viewing a whale. Commentary was just in French, so didn't get much of it, but seemed to be pleasantly informative.

Went on a half day Cat' Ananas catamaran cruise. Everything was great - the crew was fluent in English, the catamaran was very decent with a large cabin below deck, they served us breakfast and samosas, and lots of drinks for every taste. We sailed along a family of dolphins and saw the beautiful west coast of Reunion, all before... More
