Catamaran Sunset Cruise + Gastronomic Dinner

Enjoy an incredible sunset cruise, ensuing a gourmet dining experience, aboard a luxurious catamaran.

Half Day Private Catamaran Cruise At Balaclava

Whether it’s a romantic evening out, a celebration with friends and family, or simply some downtime to unwind that you are seeking, this luxury intimate cruise will be an apt fit for you. As the sun goes down, you will set off on a relaxing cruise along the beautiful north-west coast of Mauritius on a catamaran, purely optimised for a highly smooth ride.

Toast at dusk to welcome the new evening with a bottle of sparkling wine and relish delicious light canapés provided to you onboard. In addition, you will have the benefit of complimentary beverages such as soft drinks, wine and beer. Lie back and admire the breathtaking scenery the sky paints for you as the sun begins to fade, gently lowering into the horizon.

You will have the splendid opportunity of enjoying first-hand the magnificent tropical sunset usually only witnessed in pictures.

To sustain an intimate and cosy atmosphere, the number of passengers onboard is limited to four, hence, freeing you from the worry of an overly busy crew and hectic vibes. You will be able to enjoy your cruise and bask in the spectacular sunset experience in all serenity. Additionally, a dedicated crew will be at your service throughout the journey, attending to your each and every need to their best of their abilities.

During the cruise, you will also get to experience a delectable gastronomic dinner. You will have the excellent choice between a main course of grilled lobster with garlic lemon butter, grilled beef tenderloin or a mixed seafood platter with lobster, prawn, calamari & mussels. Otherwise, you can opt for the best of both worlds with the Surf & Turf menu, offering a beef fillet and lobster or an equally delicious vegetarian menu. Savour the blissful flavours of the 3-course gastronomic dinner prepared by your private on-board Chef accompanied by an indulging service by your dedicated butler in the midst of gorgeous Indian Ocean.
