Great adventure! I don’t regret choosing this trip over the Ile aux Cerfs at all. The northern islands are amazing. You can find some really good snorkeling spots. For this activity I recommend the Flat Island - just walk a little along the beach :)
Highly recommending the trip itself and the company!

Went for the Catamaran cruise to ilot Gabriel and Flat Island with my wife on February 14, 2020. Tour organized by Eco Holidays. We were picked up from our hotel at Le Meridien ile Maurice at 8.15am by Rajan to the Grand Baie Beach area to board the Catamaran. Eco Holidays personnel and safety conscious boat crew members were professional. Good music on board, drinks and Delicious BBQ on Flat Island. We had enough time to swim in the beach and relax on both islands. It was money well spent. Kudos to Eco Holidays

Wonderful organisation, not too full with only 6 guests. Delicious food, friendly skippers, nice spots for snorkeling.
Only on Flat island a bit too crowded. Too many boats, too loud for the animals living there. Beware your nature.

On previous holidays we have had mixed experiences with this sort of trip however this catamaran trip was fantastic. The crew were polite, friendly and attentive. We shared the boat with 8 other people ( and a baby), different nationalities but by the end of the day we were all friends as we had shared such a great experience. The absolute standout was the food. A bbq cooked on the boat but one of the best meals we had all week ( and we have eaten well!)

The cruise was smooth and crew very nice ! The islands are beautiful with crystal clear water. BBQ and food was great, lots of beverages to drink. Alexandre and Yohan gave us good information about the islands, we were able to stop at Gunner’s Quoin to do some snorkeling and see plenty of fishes !

Money well spent. Well organized trip all way to Gabriel island. Snorkeling equipment was provided by the crew. If you want to see turtles, head further away to the back of the beach where there are rocks and a bit deeper water. On our way back from Gunner's Quoin, a pack of dolphins came to swim with our catamaran.

This was the MOST DISAPPOINTING part of our recent trip to Mauritius. We had booked a full day cruise well in advance and we reached the pick up point on schedule on given day only to find out that we WERE NOT GOING TO BE PICKED UP because no boat arrived. We were not informed on email or by phone. When we called Catamaran Cruise, Priscilla simply apologised saying that they are full and will give us a refund. They had absolutely no regret of any kind and did not offer any other activity for that day in order to compensate. We were travelling with elderly parents who are not likely to go back to Mauritius again. I certainly DO NOT recommend them because of their unprofessional attitude.

What an amazing day out. We took the day trip to flat island on 11th December 2018. From the moment we arrived, the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The snorkelling was amazing and after that we had lunch on the boat by flat island. The food was amazing. Really tasty barbecue with drinks and some great guitar playing from one of the guys.

Highly recommend if you are in the area.

We had a full day catamaran cruise to Gabriel Island Mauritius.
The boat started from Grand Bay jetty at about 9 am and took around 1 and half hours to get to the island.
It was an experience in the choppy sea with water splashing about. The toilet was rather illequpped on the lower deck. But the beer and local rum was very good.
On route we was this gigantic whale-like island.
We reached the usland and were ferried to the prestine beach with white sands.
The waters in the cove were a wondetful ultramarine blue. Calm and peaceful. I could swim upto half a kliometer into the sea. Enjoyed swimming for a hour.
Lolled on the beach chairs for half an hour .
Took some pictures. Then had a couple of beers and felt in heaven.
The food was basic but the good part was that it was not only sea food but vegetarians also had options. Nice food. The island the beach and the catamaran ride are a must must.

I checked out bunch of sites before settling down with this option.

The cruise left at 10am, as we wanted to sleep in.

The crew was processional and friendly. The lunch/ grilled meat with lots of side dishes were yummy, with constant offer of free refreshments.

One even played the guitar and sang beautifully. The only complaint: the guy steering the boat smoked like a chimney.

The boat we were on was quality vessel compared to other tour operators.

I would highly recommend these guys.
