Harris Wilson I:

Climb aboard "Harris Wilson 1" and cruise from Pointe des Regates to the privately-owned island of Ile aux Cerf’s.

Arrive at an amazing snorkeling spot to either swim in the calm waters or snorkel with the colorful reef fish.

Get some free time to explore Ile aux Cerf’s independently after lunchtime. Go for a walk along the spectacular beaches or just sit back and relax before sailing back to Pointe Jerome with our local beer in your hand.

The story of Harris Wilson I:

Authentic 18m racing catamaranBuilt in 1994 to participate in the famous "Route du Rhum", a yacht race across the Atlantic, from Saint Malo to Guadeloupe, the aim was to promote the Harris Wilson sportswear. Croisières Australes got hold of the catamaran in 1998 and converted it into a day charter catamaran. Marc Pinta in La Rochelle, France carried out the structural works and GRNW BoatYard focused on the deck/cabin installation.

The success story of Harris Wilson in Mauritius pushed Croisières Australes to acquire a second similar catamaran, the Harris Wilson 2, launched in 2003.
