Full day cruise to Ilot benitiers


Discover the south west part of the island on board our catamaran with opportunity to see dolphins. This catamaran cruise departs at 9am from Black River and sails in deep blue waters outside the reef towards Tamarin Bay allowing you to spot the school of dolphins living on the west coast of the island. A snorkeling stop is included in the itinerary near the reef of La Preneuse. Once there, you can either have a casual swim, snorkel with the colorful reef fish, have a drink or simply relax on the trampolines whilst enjoying breathtaking views of the Black River mountain range (amongst is La Tourelle du Tamarin and our highest mountain Le Piton de la Petite Riviere Noire rising to 828 metres). You will then go to visit the famous Crystal Rock which stands out in the middle of the lagoon. A delicious BBQ lunch will be served on board of the catamaran before heading to Benitiers Island and its beautiful white sandy beaches.
