  • This you just need to do if you are in Mauritius. Negotiate well for the price. We paid 1500 for 4 people on a boat to ourselves. Water is beautifully clear blue and there are thousands of fish to see.

  • We were offered this out to sea to the day in "speed boat" and only us... expensive onboard (120 euros per people, we were 3) initially Peninsula Bay: program: diving in the lagoon, island to egrets, island deer, meal on the beach etc. What to spend a dream day which proved to be... nightmare! starting at 10:00 in the morning to... low tide... not enough water so that the boat passes over the corals potatoes... not serious: we put the gas and we're through the wringer with the propeller of the boat coral!

I push my second mouth of the day (I have my daughter on board and I'm starting to feel not safe...) the 'pilot' is mouth... great day... I made a big mistake by booking this output... do not like me!
