Day 1: Arrival in Mauritius and a warm welcome. Board your catamaran at La Balise Marina in Rivière Noire, located southwest of the island. Boarding will begin at 1pm, and you will receive a briefing on safety and the program of the cruise. Departure to the lagoon of Benitier for the afternoon.
Day 2: Wake up to the suggestion from your guide to go and greet some dolphins on a motorboat, provided you booked the excursions package. After breakfast, the crew will set sail to the lagoon of Mont Choisy. Enjoy an incredible sunset with the Moka mountain range in the background.
Day 3: After breakfast, relax and embrace Mont Choisy's impressive lagoon. Feel free to go swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking. If you booked the excursions package, you will have the opportunity to visit the Sugar Museum and Garden of Pamplemousses, where you can learn about the culture of sugar canes and how they have played a crucial role in the history and development of Mauritius. Sail north and moor at the bottom of Coin de Mire cliff or in Merville lagoon for a snorkelling session. End the night at Grand Baie.
Day 4: After a well-deserved sleep-in and a rich breakfast, take your time to discover the shops in Grand Baie and stroll through them at your own pace. On this day, passengers on the Morne Dream cruise will disembark, and guests boarding for the Gabriel Dream cruise will be welcomed. Your catamaran will sail to the very north of the island and will stop in Cap Malheureux bay for the night, with the famous red-roofed church as a sentinel.
Day 5: Visit the Domaine de Labourdonnais Sugar Estate with its castle, alluring gardens, old orchards and rum factory (in the excursions package). Lunch on board, sail to L’Ile Plate and moor at Ilot Gabriel. Dinner and overnight stay.
Day 6: After an early swim and harmonious start to the morning in these secluded islands, we will sail southwest to the bay of Rivière Noire. Spend a quiet night at anchor in this fine fishing village now converted into a favoured tourist location. A charming bay, protected from the winds by a majestic mountain range, will engulf you for the night.
Day 7: Breakfast. Optional excursion: visit a village in Chamarel and rum distillery. Enjoy a delicious traditional lunch. Depending on the sea's rhythm, you will either disembark at Tamarin's mythical beach or explore the mouth of Rempart river with a sea kayak. Dinner and overnight stay at La Balise Marina.
