    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! Despite our strong discontent "driver" continues... anyway no alternative now that we're here... the noise of the corals in the propeller I'll remember for a long time (in full reserve marine...) without forgetting the danger this poses to us also... well out of this horror direction the wide at bottom the joysticks, Creole music blaring out, we're running several times of capsizing , not an hour ago we left.. .we got already want to go home but a strong smell of gasoline we take the nostrils... large leak on the engine... it was not pretty damaged the lagoon... galley to make a makeshift repair... 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!

    Best to visit during non peak days where the relatively small beach gets crowded. Every year the marine park corals get further bleached. Therefore as time goes by you will see more and more dead corals. I would recommend snorkeling (on a beautiful day) instead of the limited time glass bottom ride.

    Beautiful, clear waters, but unfortunately the corals are mostly dead. Still plenty of marine life, and nice place for boating and wind surfing

    A beautiful reef right at the shore. Very amazing for snorkeling, diving, or even a glass bottom boat tour. Very colorful and a high variety of corals and fish

    Very attractive place. Should do glass bottom boat tour

    One of the beautiful places to go out in s glass bottom boat and also snorkel over the coral. Watch the planes taking off or landing you can almost touch them. There are also a number of organised tours from Blue Bay where you are taken out for the day having a BBQ and seeing the island from the sea side a trip well worth making
