Benitiers Island and Le Morne Boat Trip

  • The activity takes place with a escort that simultaneously speaks in English and other languages. English
  • 7 hours

Cruise along the waters around southwestern Mauritius when you take our fantastic speedboat tour. You will sail along the coastline of Benitiers Island, see dolphins playing in Tamarin Bay, and even enjoy a  traditional delicious meal on a paradise beach.

Benitiers Island and Le Morne Cruise

We meet up in the morning at the Riviere Noire (Black River) estuary before setting sail to the idyllic waters of Tamarin Bay. Upon arriving, we will meet some friendly dolphins during what is surely an experience you will never forget.

Then we set off again in the boat, this time to the south of the island. The journey takes us alongside the spectacular west coast of the Island as the infinite Indian Ocean stretches out in front of us. We will arrive at the peninsula of Le Morne, famous for its basaltic rock outcrop which rises up more than 1500 feet high.

Once there, we will have the opportunity to dive into the crystal clear waters, enjoy a refreshing swim, and explore the seabed with snorkels.

Later, we continue our cruise around this impressive environment, stopping at the beach of Benitiers Island to eat some delicious food and regain our strength. You will enjoy a meal consisting of pasta salad, chicken, fish, potatoes and banana flambe. After this, we will begin the return trip to the original departure point. However, there is one last special surprise along the way.

The Roche Crystal is a beautiful, diamond-shaped rock that gives the illusion of floating on top of the shallow turquoise waters. We will stop here for a short time so you can take a wonderful dip.

Then we head back to Riviere Noire, arriving at around 4:30 pm.

Who can take part?

This activity is not recommended for pregnant women.

Important information

During the winter season, from mid-May to October, low tides occur on the west coast, so the boat is forced to make a stop about 30-50 feet from the main beach and guests must walk to the shore. 

Please wear beach shoes or rubber boots.
