Croisieres Australes

Duration: Half Day

croisieres australes

Enjoy a day of pure relaxation in paradise as you sail down Mauritius’ breathtaking coastlines on a stylish catamaran. Two sailing itineraries are available: the North coast and South East coast. Both cruises will enable you to spend time relaxing on idyllic beaches, swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear lagoons and exploring the natural treasures of the Indian Ocean. This is one of the most popular tours on the island.

Let your cares float away as you sail away from Grand Baie on board the beautiful catamaran Le Pacha. Relax on deck with a cocktail as we cruise across the sparkling turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Feel the sun on your face and the cool tropical breeze rushing through your hair as you soak up the scenic beauty all around you. A holiday in Mauritius doesn’t get much more relaxing than this. Marvel at the dazzling white sandy beaches, lush tropical vegetation and emerald lagoons as we glide along the North Coast past the Gunner’s Coin, a unique rocky island that rises up from the sea, towards the stunning islet of L'Ilot Gabriel.

Several beautiful tropical islets are located off the north coast of Mauritius and L'Ilot Gabriel is one of the most popular. This tranquil haven is the epitome of a secluded Robinson Crusoe island. Laze on idyllic, powdery white-sand beaches or take a stroll and search for shells before cooling off in one of the most beautiful lagoons on the island. Rich with marine life, this is an idyllic place to swim and snorkel. Explore the vibrant coral reefs, which are teeming with brightly-coloured exotic fish of all shapes and sizes, and swim amongst other fascinating sea creatures such as turtles, starfish, octopus and cuttlefish. This majestic aquarium will amaze and delight you.

Alternatively, you can choose to cruise along the South East coast aboard the beautiful Shandrani catamaran. Setting sail from Blue Bay, we head towards Ile aux Cerfs, a stunning islet renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty. As you sail towards the shore you are greeted with dazzling white sandy beaches fringed with swaying palm trees, surrounded by a breathtaking turquoise lagoon. Most people only dream of visiting a paradise island such as this. On shore, you will have free time for exploring, swimming, snorkeling and shopping for crafts and souvenirs.

A barbeque lunch will served on board during the cruises and music and entertainment will also be provided on the way. These unforgettable adventures are a wonderful way to explore Mauritius’ exquisite natural beauty both above and below the water.
