What people are saying about Tamarin

It was a wonderful experience. We saw Dolphins very close to our catamaran. Glad we were not allowed to jump but enjoy the view of the wild dolphins from the boat without disturbing them too much. We also did snorkelling and saw the Crystal Rock and visited the island of Ile Le Benetiers. The crew were very friendly and very helpful. The food was awesome, although it said BBQ, it was very vegetarian and vegan friendly and really tasty. The hospitality was great and overall it was a very pleasant experience. Totally worth it!

Fabulous trip! We had a great family day - beautiful sea, LOADS of dolphins, great snorkelling, super food, and plenty of drinks all day! The crew were fabulous - really friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommended!

Loved it! Superb crew, they make both both adults and babies feel very welcome. Tasty food and over all a great experience to enjoy beautiful Mauritius from a catamaran.

Was a very nice day. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys boating and snorkeling.

Well organised professional staff. Good food, nice boat. Amazing trip.
