    Speed Boat Seaduction image
    Wow, what a day! Eric provided our family with the perfect day out. Amazing snorkeling around the reef, Eric was fantastic, guiding our 9yr old daughter by the hand, showing her the natural habitats of electric rays, moray eels, box fish and even Nemo! A beautiful lunch in the most perfect setting, a real seafood lovers treat, BBQ'd marlin and lobster with hand dived fresh sea urchins on request if desired!! And then on the return journey, a stop off to encounter majestic sea turtles and dolphins. I told Eric I was going to test out his 250+ 5 star reviews......he didn't disappoint. See more..

    Angel Cruises image
    We have booked our day trip with Get your Guide and we had a wonderful day! The communication by Whatsapp was very good with Genaro, our guide from Angel Cruises, who welcomed us on the spot we went on the boat, he was always smiling and polite. Our taxi driver Mr. Henry was just amazing, he was very knowledgeable so we had an agreable time discussion on the way from our hotel to Mahébourg and back. And the cruise to Île aux Cerfs was just perfect! We had a wonderful surprise when we found out that, even though they had many cancelling for that day, they maintained the cruise for the 3 of us! Special thanks to our boat captain Joel who was very welcoming and made us laugh a lot...perhaps because the Piña Colada he served us constantly was very tasty as well! It was surely the highlight of our trip in Mauritius so we highly recommend it to the ones who still hesitate what trip they should book for! See more..

    Case Nautique Mahebourg image
    Great snorkelling experience with Brummell and crew. We did the extended tour so we were able to experience several different underwater ecosystems. We saw many kinds of coral, sea grass and fish of all sizes and colours. It was good to have a professional guide to make sure we didn't miss anything and to use the currents so we could drift over sites. Highly recommended! See more..

    Arminio Petit Regate image
    Certainly the best day of the year (and it was 31 December) - one of the best days ever. Sebastian was an engaging, educational and fun skipper for a day of snorkeling, food, exploring islands, watching birds and tortoises, and relaxation. Felt special to be on a traditional vessel. A can't-miss outing that made our trip to Mauritius complete. See more..

    The private boat trip with Nelson was amazing! He picked us in front of our home ( blue bay beachfront). He showed us secluded spots on deserted island. He knew when to interact and when to leave us alone. This was the best experience we had in Mauritius. He’s super friendly and knowledgeable about Mauritian culture. I highly recommend his services.

    - Amazing day
    Boat Tours
    Catamaran Cruises Mauritius image
    We booked the trip to Il aux cerf through the tour company at our hotel. The catamaran was amazing and the staff incredibly helpful and attentive. It was a rainy day but that didn’t bother us. The cat has sides that can zip down and clip in to shelter you from the wind and the rain. The food was amazing and there was always snacks and drinks available. We even saw dolphins while sailing. Snorkeling and the waterfall waterfall was fun. We even saw monkeys. The stop on the island was fun and a quick walk to the other side of the island we found a beautiful beach that was good for swimming. We got picked up again with the cat and headed back. The sail back was relaxing and fun and I would highly recommend this day trip. Sitting on the trampolines in front of the cat was so much fun and you can get a nice tan going. All in all an amazing boat and staff!! See more..
  14. 4.5 Pointe d'Esny (260 reviews)
    - Beautiful but windy
    Bodies of Water • Beaches
    Pointe d'Esny image
    Everything about this beach is a pleasure to the eyes: the entry through a narrow passage, the turquoise water, thin white sand, and last but not least the Eastern mountains that you can see far away from the beach. The place is usually not too crowded so if you’re seeking tranquility it would be one of the best spots of the region. The only downside is that the place is quite windy, which can become annoying as you spend time there. See more..
  15. 4.5 Biscuiterie Rault (177 reviews)
    - Biscuit Factory
    Factory Tours
    Biscuiterie Rault image
    Visited this small biscuit factory down at Maheborg today - Wasn’t quite sure what to expect. However we were pleasantly surprised as the method being used to make the biscuits is certainly interesting. They use a flour made from a root, and the biscuits are cooked on a hot plate that is fired from beneath using palm leaves for fuel. We enjoyed tasting the different varieties on offer and purchased some from the shop to take home See more..
  16. 4.5 La Vallée de Ferney (117 reviews)
    - Hiking, waterfalls, giant tortoises and fabulous views - we can definitely recommend this venue
    Friday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Spent 2-3 hours Biking Trails • Nature & Wildlife Areas • Hiking Trails
    La Vallée de Ferney image
    Facing the bay of Mahebourg and at the foot of the Lion Mountain, Ferney is a historical and natural treasure of Mauritius, home to one of the last endemic forests of the island. Our ambition is to position and develop the 3,100 Ha private domain as a hub for sustainable development, working on sustainable farming and nature experiences. See more..
  17. 4.5 Île du Phare (48 reviews)
    - Where history meets nature
    Historic Sites • Points of Interest & Landmarks • Lighthouses
    Île du Phare image
    We visited Ile aux Phare during a boat trip. We were allowed to visit the island. It is a bit hard for the boat to go near the island then we had to walk in the sea to get on the island but it was worth it. Stunning nature around the island plus and old historic lighthouse is there! There were some endemic lizards that live only on the island therefore be careful when you walk around! See more..
  18. 4.5 Taxi Service In Mauritius (2 reviews)
    - Excellent taxi/tour guide Mauritius, good English speaker.
    Friday: 12:00 AM - 11:30 PM Taxis & Shuttles • Gear Rentals • Wine Tours & Tastings • Day Trips
    Taxi Service In Mauritius image
    Ravish is an excellent tour guide and taxi operator in Mauritius. I have used his services twice (pre+post covid closures). Reliable and knowledgeable, Ravish provided us with exactly what we asked for. Good communication via WhatsApp for airport taxi shuttle and also with suggestions on day tours. Listened to my needs (young baby 1st trip, toddler second trip) and suitable suggestions. Operates a family taxi/tour business so by using his services clients can directly contribute to helping the local communities and not some large national enterprise. I highly recommend him.

  19. 4.0 Blue Bay Marine Park (521 reviews)
    - Great snorkeling spot
    Bodies of Water • Reefs
    Blue Bay Marine Park image
    What an pleasant experience! Who ever said the coral is dead obviously does not know what live coral looks like. At least 80%is still alive and there are only small patches that are damaged. Even though it was overcast almost the entire week we were there, we were still able to see quite a lot. There are all types of fish, shells(big ones), LIVE coral and the guys that went the previous day even saw turtles. The oil spill did not seem to affect it to much(not sure why it looked like before) but the spill happened on the other side of the island. Agreed there are better places to snorkel in the world but this is defenately on my top 10! Well worth a visit. Regarding the ankers damaging the coral, it seems the boats have made a designated area to lover their ancers to avoid any more damage to the coral. Would love to go back when the weather plays along. See more..
  20. 4.0 Mahebourg Waterfront (175 reviews)
    - Wonderful Historic Waterfront
    Spent 1-2 hours Piers & Boardwalks
    Mahebourg Waterfront image
    Mahebourg Waterfront in Mahebourg is one of the best historic place in the south eastern part of Mauritius. Walking along the waterfront is one of the best activities to do while enjouying the sights of local people and local fishermen on their daily chores. The main bus station is by the waterfront and that makes if more convenient if travelling by bus to other cities. Local shops are nearby and local markets are just a stone throw away. I spent 5 days in Mahebourg and stayed by the waterfront and it's one of the best itinerary I had in my 23 days in Mauritius. See more..
  21. 4.0 Mahebourg Museum (171 reviews)
    - Needs upkeep
    Spent 1-2 hours History Museums
    Mahebourg Museum image
    Not many people visit this old stately colonial era mansion which is now converted into a museum. Lovely artifacts of the many naval battles fought in these waters. A must see for history buffs. The railway carriage behind the museum lies utterly neglected. See more..
  22. 4.0 Mauritius Airport Taxi (41 reviews)
    - Easy, reliable transfers
    Taxis & Shuttles
    Mauritius Airport Taxi image
    Used for three transfers - first one booked from UK before we arrived - then between hotels, then back to the airport. All very smooth - great communications, friendly drivers who were great to chat to and told us a lot about the island. Would definitely recommend. See more..
  23. 4.0 Coral Diving (33 reviews)
    - Week at Le Preskil
    Friday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Scuba & Snorkelling
    Coral Diving image
    We spent a week at Le Preskil and went diving with the on-site dive centre - Coral Diving I found them to be friendly and efficient. We had brought most of our own gear - so we didn't have to rent. The boat was well equipped and the crew helpful and enthusiastic. The only drawback really was the dive sites themselves. Mauritian reefs are bereft of sea life - so although the reefs were fine - there were few fish. We went to a few sites inside the reef and then a few outside. I saw more fish snorkelling off the beach. We are a little spoilt at home with Sodwana Bay and Aliwal Shoal which have an abundance of tropical fish but it was extremely disappointing to only spot the odd fish here and there. Mauritius is a great place for a holiday - but don't have high expectations of the diving. See more..
  24. 4.0 Ile aux Fouqets Lighthouse (17 reviews)
    - The Second Stop
    Friday: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Spent 1-2 hours Lighthouses
    Ile aux Fouqets Lighthouse image
    For our second stop on the day we visited the lighthouse on a small island. The view of the Indian Ocean on the other side of the island was truly amazing. Definitely worth the stop. See more..
  25. 4.0 Bo'Valon Mall (6 reviews)
    - The Chef Restaurant at Bo'Valon MALL.
    Spent 2-3 hours Shopping Malls
    Bo'Valon Mall image
    Bo'Valon Mall is Ascencia's 7th mall in the southeast region of the island; just a stone’s throw away from the airport! See more..
