Boat Trip and Snorkelling at Rivière Banane - Rodrigues

The activity is not available until further notice

Enjoy snorkelling in the beautiful, clear lagoon of Rodrigues and discover its exciting tropical marine world.

Your exploratory journey will begin with a 45-minute trip on a wooden boat, from the Port Mathurin harbour, that will lead you to a highly convenient snorkelling spot in the Rivière Banane Marine Reserve’s ‘Aquarium’. Once there, you will snorkel to discover the amazing underwater sights the Rodriguan lagoon has to offer.

Boat Trip and Snorkelling at Rivière Banane – Rodrigues

Explore the marvellous Rodrigues’ well-preserved marine environment that includes around 280 species of coral, an impressive array of marine life counting rays, jack fish, turtles and other exotic aquatic creatures.

You will spend an hour and a half under water, during which you will be able to swim or snorkel freely in the lagoon. For safety reasons, snorkelling equipment as well as life jackets will be provided to you.

The Marine Reserve borders the village of Rivière Banane on the North-East coast of Rodrigues.

The Rivière Banane site was specifically chosen to include the special “Aquarium” area which contains a number thriving coral reefs, fish, octopus as well as other marine creatures because the site was seen by fishers and scientists as a good potential source of fish larvae that could replenish surrounding areas if left unfished.

This snorkelling trip will be an amazing experience for you. You will have great stories to share afterwards, about the wonderful marine world you explored and its beautiful inhabitants as well.
