Activity description

Come and sail on the largest lagoon of Mauritius, between Mahebourg and Blue Bay, on board a typical Mauritian pirogue for a short day!

With Lokal Adventure, you will spend 6 hours of happiness on board a pirogue on the turquoise waters of the Mahebourg lagoon, in the south-east of Mauritius. You will discover the different islands that are there, with skippers who know them like the back of their hand! You can therefore count on them to share with you the history of Ile de la Passe and Ile au Phare, and to teach you more about the biodiversity that inhabits the nature reserve of Ile aux Aigrettes throughout this pirogue trip.

Departing from Pointe Jerome in Mahebourg, the pirogue will first go to Ile de la Passe, then to Ile au Phare, also called Ile aux Fouquets. It will then sail on the beautiful turquoise waters of the nature reserve of the Ile aux Aigrettes, the ideal place for a snorkeling break! With fins, mask and snorkel on, you will be able to swim in the lagoon that stretches from Mahebourg to Blue Bay, or stay on board the pirogue and enjoy the paradisiacal setting that surrounds you.

Once the snorkeling around the Ile aux Aigrettes is over, the pirogue will set sail towards the Vacoas Island where you will enjoy a delicious Mauritian barbecue. During this pirogue tour, don't hesitate to observe the waters of the lagoon with attention: you might be lucky enough to see a sea turtle!

If you are in Blue Bay or Vieux Grand Port and you want to spend a nice day relaxing and discovering the lagoon, don't wait any longer and go to Mahebourg, on Pointe Jerome, to board the Lokal Adventure pirogue!
