We did this catamaran boat trip yesterday and I want to start off by saying the crew were amazing.. they are very friendly and try and make your time as enjoyable as possible.

Unfortunately the weather just wasn’t on our side and the whole day was a bit of a disaster (for me anyway)

We got picked up from Grand Baie public beach on time at 8am and the weather was cloudy but on the weather app it had forecast storms but the trip still went ahead. We had tea & coffee and was briefed the itinerary for the day.

Within about half an hour it started to pour with rain and with not much shelter/covered areas on the catamaran we got completely drenched, the waves were huge which made the journey really not enjoyable and it’s about 1hr 45 mins to get to the first island. The waves also meant you got severely splashed by the sea all the time. I ended up with severe sea sickness due to going down to the toilet for less than a minute. I then spent the majority of my time being sick off the back of the boat.

By the time we got to flat island it was still pouring with rain so majority got off and was taken to the island and I’m sure it would have been amazingly beautiful if the sun was shining but unfortunately for us it wasn’t. We stayed on the boat but the others said there wasn’t anything to do apart from sit in a tiny shelter on the island because it was pouring with rain.

We had lunch on the boat which was apparently really nice accordingly to my partner but I couldn’t eat anything from being unwell. Luckily a kind lady gave me a sickness tablet so I felt better but didn’t get to eat.

We all made the decision to skip the next island and just find a snorkelling spot, which the crew were happy to do. Whilst on board they play music and serve you drinks which would have been so much nicer had the sun been out.

We got to the snorkelling spot and it’s was quite good, a range of fish to see but it wasn’t shallow so if you’re not a confident swimmer/have young kids that want to stand up it’s not ideal.

The ride back to shore was a lot smoother as we were riding with the waves but we still got completely soaked so I would advise taking at least 2 changes of clothes as well as a rain mac and towels to dry off because you will be soaked. Our feet and hands were wrinkled all day where it was just so soggy and cold. Shivering throughout the whole trip.

Again I want to say that the crew really tried their best given the circumstances but it’s rare that they will cancel the trip unless it is unsafe to do so, so unless the weather is guaranteed sunshine I wouldn’t recommend because all I wanted to do was get back to land! It was hell for me and I usually love boat trips.

I didn’t take a single video or photo on the trip, barely had a chance to hold my phone without being drenched.

Dear Hannah, Thank you for your posting your review following your sailing experience to the north islands. We are glad to hear that despite the weather that did not play in your favour that you still made the most of your day out on the catamaran. We are glad to hear that the crew made it up even though the sea was rough and that you felt sea sick. We really hope to welcome you back on board for a better sailing experience. Although the sea can get rough on the North and west coast next time opt for the south east coast from pointe Jerome to isle aux cerfs which operates inside the lagoon and therefore remains a smooth ride all the way and back The Catamaran Cruises Mauritius Team

Fantastic day at the sea, with lots of sun, big weaves and great snorkling. Colourful fishes, “newborn” coralreef and even a turtle. A wonderfull lunch from the grill was served...there is only one thing to pinpoint; we ran out of drinks. When we returned to the beach, there was only 1/2 liter of mineralwater left. No softdrinks, no beer, no wine nor Rhum.

The trip lasted 830am to 4PM, which was plenty time. Went to two beaches and one area near a cliff to snorkel. Plenty of food, coffee and cake in the morning, and pretty much all you can eat for lunch. Same with drinks, bottomless. Good crew.

Only negative was only enough snorkeling masks and fins for 10% of the boat. I couldnt go because they didnt have enough equpment, that was dissapointing. But, this is a nice trip to get off the island.

I highly discourage people from opting for this catamaran cruise unless if they are looking forward to get a terribly bad service from an unfriendly and arrogant catamaran owner and staffs.

To summarize our experience, we informed the captain of the catamaran that we will be 15 mins late and he said that he will wait for us. We reached within the next 10 minutes. So basically, the catamaran was supposed to be still waiting for us since we still had 5 minutes before he leaves. However, the captain left even before the time he said he will. He didn’t wait for us and because of that, we were left on the beach and had to go back. We called the owner of the catamaran (a South African lady named Stephanie) to try find a solution such as asking the catamaran to come pick us back since we were still within the time limit said by the captain or in the worse case, rescheduling the trip. We were very surprised by her arrogance and complete refusal to collaborate. She said that it will be a good lesson for us to be on time in the future and that we will neither refund or reschedule the trip
She blocked all of our mobile numbers for the next weeks after not picking us the call. When finally we manage to get our call through, she asked for an additional amount of rs 700 per person to reschedule the trip.

To summarize, I would not recommend anyone to opt for this particular catamaran (wind dancer). You will be very disappointed and ruin your holidays.

Dear Reader of Catamaran Cruises Mauritius Tripadvisor page, It is with great regret that we are responding to this review together with the 2 other bad reviews. These reviews posted on the 10th & 11th of January 2022 by customers of bad faith did not book this excursion through Catamaran Cruises Mauritius. Our proven track record of positive & objective reviews are the living testimony of satisfied customer who have used our services in the past time and time again. We have tried several times to contact Tripadvisor to dispute these non reviews that do not belong on our trip-advisor page as these customers did not book through catamaran cruises mauritius, but the automated messages that we got back simply show that Tripadvisor has become to big to listen and take action in such circumstances and these comments are here to stay... So the only recourse we have as an operator is to post our Management response . We trust that if you are reading this review and our response to it that you will use your own judgement and realise that these reviews are not objective and do not belong on our page. Thank you, The Catamaran Cruises Mauritus Team P.S: We know the operator of this cruise as Mauritius is a small place and we work closely with a number of operators. Their version of the story is that these customers were simply over an hour late and despite waiting for them an extra half hour they simply could not hold the catamaran any longer as the other guests on board were starting to complain.

Very bad experience at with the catamaran namely wind dancer!we were a group of 12 friends coming from all parts of the island,where we arranged with the staff that we will get some delay to which they agreed to wait for us for 15mins,whereby we reached within 5mins!on reaching the spot we saw the catamaran leaving already and the staff talked to us in an arrogant manner and blocked our number shortly afterwards!even the captain!i strongly don’t recommend this company as there was no refund,and for rescheduling another trip they asked for further rs700 where they spoke arrogantly!bad mentality along with bad service!
