Full Day West Coast – Black River to Tamarin Bay to Crystal Rock to Ile aux Benitiers (Sharing Basis) (Include F&B)

The clear waters of the west coast of Mauritius call for utter relaxation… Discover the west coast in all its splendour! Setting off from Black River, you’ll make your way to Tamarin Bay in search of bottle-nosed or spinner dolphins. With a bit of luck, they’ll be there, and their cheeky leaps and moving songs will be truly unforgettable.

Then we’ll head for some snorkelling to play with lionfish or trumpet-fish and then on to the famous ‘Crystal Rock’, a giant clam shaped coral, rising out of the turquoise lagoon. After a BBQ lunch served at anchor, a tender boat is at your disposal for those who would like to go on Île aux Bénitiers. We should be back in Black River at around 3:30pm.

Your Excursion Includes:

  • Observing The Dolphins
  • BBQ Lunch on Board
  • Unlimited Drinks*
  • Snorkelling
  • Visit of Île Aux Bénitiers
  • Swimming next to the ‘crystal rock’
Departure: L’Estuaire, La Balise Marina, Black River

The boat then heads to Black River, all sails hoisted. In the lagoon, a patch reef about two metres deep, harbours colourful fish and small crustaceans. Get into your snorkelling gear and chase after butterfly fish or tease passing trumpet fish while admiring the coral outcrops spread on the white sand. Taste the saltiness of the water as you swim under the vigilant and trained eye of the crew, ready to intervene should anyone need any help.

Since nothing gets an appetite going like a swim in the sea, the crew begin the preparations for the meal.

As you climb back on board, the delicious smell of local cuisine will make your mouth water. Feast on grilled fish and chicken with various salads, as well as bananas flambéed in rum for dessert, depending on the season.

The boat is then steers towards the infamous Bénitiers Rock, which stands over the turquoise lagoon. As the boat anchors as close as possible, depending on the tide, be sure to snap a picture next to this mysterious outcrop that features endlessly on Mauritian postcards. The crystal-clear water laps gently on the boat and the world is all blue and green as far as the eye can see, except for the Bénitiers Island, laden with coconut trees.

 

Alcohol Consumption *
For your safety, alcoholic drinks will be given after snorkelling time. The crew reserves the right to cancel the snorkelling if ever alcoholic drinks are consumed before without prior notice. The crew also reserves the right to limit your consumption of alcoholic drinks if it proves to be excessive and dangerous.
