Sailing in Mauritius is simply wonderful. Don’t miss out! Are you a little hesitant because you’ve never been on a boat? Then take a gentle catamaran cruise in our lagoon and discover our island's outer beauty. Sea excursions can be a full day cruise, a romantic sunset sail, an overnight stay on board …
Catamaran sailing in the lagoon
Most sailing tours are offered in the comfort of a catamaran. Her large deck has lots of room. Swim or snorkel among our tropical fish and visit our laid back islets.
The views are spectacular.
South West lagoon at Riviere Noire or Black River
Below you’ll find a map of Mauritius plus an overview of some cruises. You can charter a boat or share a cruise. Up to you!
You have the choice between lagoon and deep sea sailing. We offer you two beautiful lagoons for your enjoyment:
Deep sea sailing beyond our coral reefs to the northern islets in the Indian Ocean. Boats set sail near Grand Baie.

Famous Ile aux Cerfs on the East coast
The full day cruises are the most popular cruises in Mauritius. Snacks, snorkeling equipment, barbecue lunch and drinks are included in these sea excursions. You might even come across dolphins or whales!
You can either take a lagoon cruise or a deep sea cruise. Sailing in the lagoon is not the same as sailing the deep sea. Before you decide which sailing tour to book look at my cruise guide.
Sunset in Black River
Enjoy a memorable evening watching our colourful tropical sunset from the comfort of a catamaran. Two hours of pure bliss whilst sipping a delicious cocktail with tasty snacks.
Sailing into the sunset ...
You can also book a sunset cruise with dinner. These boat tours are offered on a charter basis in Mauritius. For five hours you’ll have the boat, skipper and crew at your disposal! A great opportunity to entertain your family and friends. Other tourists could hire the boat with you and share the cost.
When you hire the catamaran you’ll have the choice between bringing your own supper and beverages or order a meal and drinks on the booking form.
During your boat tours you’ll either visit or cruise alongside these islets:
Ile Plate and Ilot Gabriel have their own lagoon in the North
You might be surprised to learn we have a ‘winter’ season. That’s June, July and August. Don’t panic! All you need to do is pack a windbreaker. Being close to water always feels slightly cooler.
Cruise tours are popular and I would advise you to book as soon as your holiday flights and accommodation are confirmed.
