Water Sports

Take to the blue waters of the Indian Ocean, for a magical day of exploration, relaxation and fun water activities on board of a fleet of sleek, impressive and fully equipped catamarans.

You'll get to see the island from the waves, all gorgeous greenery and imposing mountain peaks; you'll lounge about, swaying to the rhythms of sega or your own ipod soundtrack; you'll have a fabulous meal on board, and plenty of time to swim, snorkel and otherwise frolic in perfect, warm, transparent tropical waters. Whether you want a day of family fun, a leisurely search for new fish to spy through your snorkel mask, or a romantic outing with your soul mate, there is a choice and a cruise for everyone. Cruises are available all around the island, and every coast has its wonders and its fascination.

The south west of Mauritius is definitely one of the most impressive and untouched coasts, with a varied landscape alternating endless forests, lush mangroves, sleepy fishing villages, and silky sugarcane fields, on a background of towering mountain peaks. It also has some of the most lagoons and beaches, and unparalleled diving and snorkelling spots.

We think it's very memorable, so we currently recommend the cruises below, allowing all clients of LUX* Resorts to discover the tranquil west coast.

Catamaran Day Cruise

A day full of fun on board the Madianas, the luxury catamaran fleet of our selected service provider. This cruise departs at 9 am from Black River and heads for the spot where you can watch the famed Mauritian dolphins feed and swim around the boat; this spot, just off the mouth of the Black River, is the one place where these fascinating animals feed regularly, creating an opportunity to see them which is not to be found elsewhere around the island, and definitely not to be missed.

At 10:30 am the boat stops right outside the reef for a bit of swimming and snorkelling, then sails on, into the lagoon of Le Morne for a stop near Benitier Island; the crew will cook and serve a delicious seafood barbecue lunch on board. While the grill sizzle, you'll have another opportunity to explore crystal clear waters and have a swimming competition with the fish, to work up an appetite.   The return to dry land is scheduled for 15:30.
