We decided on our honeymoon to treat ourselves to a private boat here as it’s was just so lovely ! The places we were taken to were stunning and we swam with dolphin. The staff were so friendly and made an amazing rum punch. I would highly recommend!

Picked up from hotel jetty - so no transfer needed & we were extremely fortunate to see dolphins within 30 minutes. We also saw whales and swam with turtles during our trip. Staff were excellent, boat spotlessly clean & plenty of room for everyone (9 people). Toilets on board a bonus & made sure the kids were all well looked after. The crew advised us where we should go & when for the weather & to avoid the crowds & were spot on. BBQ lunch was delicious & drinks plentiful and for the whole day for all 9 of us was just over £700 - not bad for your own private boat with 3 members of staff! 10 out of 10 for an amazing trip - would definitely use again if in the area !!

We set off from the Ravenala Attitude hotel, just the 4 of us (private boat) for 2.5 hours round trip (3500 rupees). The turtles were incredible, lots of them, very majestic and not over run. We snorkelled with them then on the way back stopped again to snorkel with the zebra fish. Great family morning out!

We had the most incredible time on this catamaran! Pros: - Service was exceptional. The staff was extremely friendly, genuine and knowledgeable. You can tell they're experienced "men of the sea" by their abilities and we had no worries whatsoever about not reaching our destination safely! - The food was OMG so good! We've been on other catamarans before and nothing came remotely close to what we were served on Turtle Cruise. The BBQ was so yummy and the accompanying dishes as savoury - we especially liked the Indonesian fried rice! The whole experience was so different from other catamarans where you feel you're being served bland prisoner food. - Comfortable cruise. No seasickness from any of us, which was a first! The staff said that it is due to the high speed of the cruise. It is a power catamaran after all. - Great itinerary! The catamaran picked us up right at the jetty of our hotel, which was super convenient (and exotic!) as we did not need a car transfer to go to the embarkation point, which is the case for other catamarans. We then cruised along the Western coast. The scenery was simply stunning! We got to see the coastal areas of Mauritius from the sea and wow, the island is truly beautiful; clear waters, white sands. It may sound cliche, but Mauritius is one hell of a paradise! We also caught sight of some dolphins, which delighted our little tot! Con: The price is a little on the high side, but it is understandable given that it is a private cruise. Anyhow, the experience was worth every cent. Overall, we had such a wonderful time that we'd definitely go back next time we're in Mauritius - highly recommended - you won't regret it!
