Mauritius Sailing Cruise

Discover the Pearls of Mauritius

Mauritius Aerial View

Mauritius sits like a pearl in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. A contrast of colours, culture and tastes it holds a fascination for every visitor who comes here. Add natural beauty to die for and immense charm and the stage is set for a dream holiday in every sense of the word.
There is no better place to discover the clear warm waters and white beaches than from the deck of our Dream Yachts catamaran. The seas surrounding these gorgeous islands teem with underwater treasures. Make sure you practice your snorkelling skills then you can paddle off to even the most hidden places in on-board kayak and marvel at what goes on below the surface.

Whilst cruising you can laze on the sun deck or retire to your own private double cabin with en-suite bathroom. Meals come courtesy of the cook who has an excellent reputation for local signature dishes made with produce from the islands and the sea – as you might imagine the fresh fish and fruit are wonderful.
Our cruise itineraries are designed to show you everything Mauritius is famous for with some hidden away favourite places of our own on the agenda for good measure. All departures are guaranteed.

In summer (November to April) it’s slightly higher, meaning 26°C to 32°C .The water temperature of the Indian Ocean can go up to 28°C. Usually wind is blowing quiet steady from easterly directions.
