DESCRIPTION:

For the ultimate day out in paradise, it’s hard to beat this unique island hopping day trip that delivers adventure, relaxation and discovery. Snorkel at the famous Blue Bay Marine Park, filled with amazing coral formations and an abundance of colourful fish; swim in the crystal-clear blue waters of the South and South-East coast of Mauritius; visit the historically significant islands and soak in some breathtaking sceneries; enjoy a delicious barbecued lunch right on the beach; and relax on the white sandy beaches of Ile aux Cerfs!

This fantastic, fun-filled day begins with a snorkelling stop at Blue Bay. As your speedboat approaches the marine park, you will begin to understand why this beach is called Blue Bay: the water is a multitude of shades of blue. You will want nothing more than to put on your mask and flippers and hop in the water to discover the abundance of colourful tropical fish, including the trumpet fish, diverse coral formations and other marine creatures that call this park home.

Then you will head off to Ile de la Passe and Ile au Phare, where your knowledgeable and friendly skipper will provide you with educational commentary on the historical significance of these two islands. From your boat, you will be able to view the ruins of old buildings, including a prison, dating back to 200 years! You will learn about the great naval battle of Grand Port that took place in the South East. You will stop at Ile au Phare, also known as Ile aux Fouquets and have some time to visit the island, which is a photographer’s dream. It has an abandoned lighthouse, beautiful cliffs where you can see powerful waves crashing against the rocks, and you can come across many interesting and rare creatures such as lizards and tropicbirds.

You will then visit the Grand River South East waterfall, and on the way, see the curious monkeys jumping through the big old trees on the river banks if you’re lucky. You can see the Mauritian fruit bats resting perched on the highest trees as you approach the waterfall. Your skipper will offer you a drink and you’ll be on your way again!

You will head to the wild side of Ile aux Cerfs for a delicious barbecue lunch, prepared and served right on the beach in the shade of the casuarina trees.

Lunch Menu on Ile aux Cerfs:

  • Barbecue: chicken, fresh fish, lobster (250g) or scampi (400g), bread, rice, mixed salad
  • Dessert: flaming bananas
  • Drinks: red, rosé, and white wine, beer, rum, Coca Cola, fruit juice, mineral water

 
After that you will head to the postcard-perfect side of Ile aux Cerfs where you can spend an hour lazing in the sun on the golden sand beaches. There are other activities on the island that you can partake in once you’re there. The hardest part of your day will be leaving this island, but don’t worry, you will get to finish the day by going for a dip near the Ile aux Aigrettes.

    The children loved it. Our first stop was the Blue Bay snorkelling park. We stopped here for about 45 minutes… swimming with the fish and discovering live coral. Then we saw some small islands and the skipper told us the history of the islands – very interesting. We walked on the lighthouse island and discovered beautiful birds with long white tails. Next stop was the waterfall but we also saw a family of monkeys which the children loved. Then we stopped for lunch and to relax on a beautiful island: Ile aux Cerfs. Delicious barbecue and drinks. It was a perfect day. Note: Beware of sea urchins on the island.

    The boat trip was great, we saw and did lots of things but still with enough time to relax. The only problem was that the transfer to pick us up got us there 1.5hrs early, so we had to wait around for a bit, although the staff were welcoming. The only other point was that there quite a lot of people in the boat (12 plus driver) so it was a bit cramped. But overall we really enjoyed it, and would score it 4 out of 5.
