Cruising with friends, which catamaran to choose?

The Southeastern Islands aboard the Harris Wilson Experience

The Harris Wilson catamaran is perfect to rejuvenate your body and free up your mind. Departing from Mahébourg, the day begins with a dive into the depths of Trou Moutou, before discerning the Île de la Passe and visiting Île au Phare. Not far, is a beautiful waterfall where our crew will take you and where you can observe wild monkeys as well! You will subsequently enjoy a tasty lunch on board before getting to the famous Île aux Cerfs.

The configuration of the catamaran allows for a much better experience of the cruise, thanks to its lounge area which offers each passenger space of privacy. So, you can bask on bean bags, contemplate the landscape and chat with a cocktail in hand. Paddles are also available for those wishing to roam the turquoise waters. We start rowing on our knees and as soon as we feel comfortable, we stand with legs bent and feet well apart for a perfect balance!

This unique experience combines the discovery of Mauritius, nautical activities and relaxation with friends. So, are you ready to embark?
