Your relaxed Catamaran Excursion starts at 8:45 from Black River in the West of Mauritius. While the crew will offer you small breads for breakfast, the Catamaran is heading to the area, where you can observe the Dolphins swimming in the sea.
Afterwards the tour will continue into the direction to Le Morne Brabant. While you can relax on the Catamaran, the crew offers you a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. There will also be a possibility for swimming or a cool down in the sea.
While the crew starts to prepare the BBQ for lunch, the Catamaran will move on to stop directly near the famous “Crystal Rock”. For lunch time at around 12:30, the crew serves you a buffet with grilled chicken, fish, sausages, salad and bread.
After lunch, you can either stay and chill on the Catamaran or the crew will offer you the transfer to Ile-aux-Bénitiers in a small dinghy. If you decide to go, take some cold drinks for the stay on the island.
In the afternoon the Catamaran starts the way back to Black River where your journey ends at around 3:30 p.m.
The Dolphin observation, as well as swimming with Dolphins, is very popular with many tourists. Therefore, there will be many boats driving and following after the Dolphins. If you don´t agree with that or don´t like to support this, you should better go for another excursion.
Additionally, please bring your own snorkeling equipment (or try to borrow these, from your Hotel), if you would like to go for snorkeling, during the excursion.
Also, (especially during the winter season), please bring a wind- and/or rain jacket, because it may start to rain, at any time, in a tropical country.
The Le Morne Brabant is a 556 m high mountain and extends over an area of 12 hectars in the South-West of Mauritius. In the time of Slavery, the mountain was directly connected to the history of Mauritius. During the 19th centuary many Slaves fled and went into hiding on the mountain. On the 1st of February 1835 a police expedition was send to the top of the mountain to announce the end of Slavery. Many Slaves understood this gesture wrongly and threw themselves from the mountain into their deaths. Since that day, the 1st of February is considered as a national public holiday to celebrate the end of Slavery.
Ile aux Bénitiers is a 65 hectar large, uninhabitant island in the district of Black River in the South-West of Mauritius. The island has a length of 2 km and is at its widest point around 500 m wide. The island consists of coral sand and is located about 500 m off the coast of La Gaulette.
The Crystal Rock is a small coral rock in the form of a crystal, where the rock got its name from. The Crystal Rock is located around 500 m in front of Ile-aux-Bénitiers and is likely the most known peace of rock from Mauritius.
