1. Mauritius: Amber Island Kayak or Small-Boat Tour

Discover Amber Island from the water and on land as you paddle across the blue waters of the lagoon. The islet is known for its rich flora which creates shady waterways perfect for exploring by kayak, including the mangroves. Tour the island with a guide and learn more about its history. Start off with a 15-minute kayak expedition from the northern coast of Mauritius (the embarkation point is Bain De Rosnay beach) towards Amber Island. During the paddle, you have the opportunity to explore a floating mangrove forest by kayak. Upon reaching Amber Island, join a guided tour of the isle which also includes a nature walk, and seeing ruins dating back to 1750. Before heading back to shore, swim in the crystalline waters of Ilot Bernache or stay dry and just take in the beautiful views. This tour is experienced via kayak and a small boat depending on your level of comfort and fitness. The team of professionals will guide you and ensure your experience is safe and memorable.

We had great fun today! Chris is a fun and experienced guide and was able to give us a very special experience. The tour takes place with a maximum of 8 people, we had a really cool group with other Europeans! After paddling through the mangroves for some time, you could optionally snorkel halfway for colorful fish. Later we dismounted and could walk around the island a little, there was even water and a little refreshment. Really great! Attention: For people without a car - there is no direct bus route to the meeting point. The nearest station is Goodland. It's best to contact the provider, they'll even pick you up :-) And: you should be a bit fit, current and wind can be a bit challenging. All in all recommendable!

We had an incredible day with Christopher our guide. The peace, the nature together with paddling were a wonderful experience. It's really hard to describe it all. You have to have experienced it. You can tell Christopher really loves what he's doing. He showed us beautiful nature and told us the history of this island and believe is more interesting than some towns. We recommend that you let them tell you. A note: You can go swimming, swimming and snorkeling on the tour. With the high salt content of the water, it's less fun without goggles and snorkel. So pack it up! Maybe that could be included in the description.

We had a great time kayaking with Christopher. We had this booked for our first whole day in Mauritius and it was great to hear about the history of the area and about Mauritius generally. Christopher made us feel very welcome and was friendly and easy to get along with. The activity itself isnt too strenuous but is a good enough workout. Highly highly highly recommend!!

The kayak tour is definitely a recommendation! We had a great guide (Christopher) who navigated us through the mangrooves and told us all about nature. Would definitely do it again! The only thing you shouldn't rely on Google Maps for is getting there and stay on the main road!

We got lost n late for 30mins Christopher is so nice n talkative. Patient and kind to my kids too! We enjoyed this tour a lot. The experience is unique n amazing
