    Wonderful experience, even though the private transfer we booked was 1 hour late from the pick-up time it didn’t matter at all in the end. We had a wonderful time and saw so many beautiful tropical corners. The big highlight was the wonderful lunch at the beach, everything was organized smoothly and we got to just sit eat and relax. If you want to explore many highlights in addition to Ile au Cerfs this is where you have to book. The crew in the boat was very entertaining and they also explained everything that we saw from the boat.

    After the greeting, we slowly started to leave the bay. You could already see the many coral reefs, where there was a snorkeling stop later. A short visit to the old lighthouse island and the drive past the old shipwreck were interesting stops. The guides provided a lot of insight into the history and the area. On the Île aux Cerfs there was a three-course menu that was really delicious. On the way back we stopped before the Île aux Aigrettes for a swim in the bright turquoise water.

    We had a great day on the speedboat. The organization and the team were great. The group size (6 people) perfect. There was a small safety briefing at the beginning of the tour. Our guide told us a lot about the different spots. Our highlight was the snorkel spot. The barbecue was delicious. We highly recommend the tour :-)
