Discover the Northern Islands of Mauritius!
Travel in comfort to the magnificent Northern Isles aboard a modern and spacious 42-foot Scape Yacht Catamaran maintained in pristine condition and skippered by a friendly and highly professional team and standing a huge chance to encounter dolphins and whales on this highly informative and unforgettable adventure cruise. Whether you are looking for adventure or leisure, our aim is to make sure this day remains the best day of your life!
Our cruise package includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks, as well as visits of both Flat Island (in the morning) and Gabriel Island (after lunch), and a 45-min stopover around Coin de Mire on the return journey where you have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in a breathtaking natural aquarium.
All three islands are preserved nature reserves with a rich bird life and spectacular hiking trails. We highly recommend the 45-min hike which circles Gabriel Island and/or the 1-hr hike to the lighthouse that sits atop Flat Island. Those hikes offer superb vistas and the opportunity to observe from up close our tropicbird, Paille-en-Queue (Scientific Name: Phaethon Lepturus). Participants planning to hike should bring a comfortable pair of shoes.
Whales (depending on the season) and dolphins can be frequently encountered on this cruise, and there is a resident population of marine turtles inside the lagoon of Gabriel Island which can be observed daily.
