BBQ Lunch Delight!

In Mauritius, a catamaran cruise paired with a BBQ lunch has become a renowned combination that captures the essence of the island's hospitality and culinary excellence. So, as you're exploring the surroundings, the irresistible aroma of BBQ will whet your appetite.

Savour the delectable dishes served on board – from perfectly grilled fish & chicken to seasonal fruits, rice & pasta salad and more.

But as the saying goes, all good things come to an end. Once lunch is over, it’ll be time to sail back to Grand Baie. Don’t miss the chance to lounge on the catamaran's trampoline area at the front. Here, you can soak up the sun, relishing the breathtaking views while the gentle sea breeze caresses you.

Although you may feel a tinge of sadness when you leave the island, rest assured that your heart will be filled with memories that you will cherish forever.
