Caring for the Environment:

Important Comments

We recommend spending 1 night in Mauritius for adaptation before the beginning of the trip to St. Brandon on-board the Luxury Catamaran.

For non Mauritians, it is required to provide a copy of their passport at least 2 months  days in advance prior the trip, providing enough time to issue all permits required for the St. Brandon trip

Since the lagoon of St. Brandon is home to stingrays and cone shells, it is very important to bring with you proper sea/water footwear.

Do you still have a doubt in your mind? We hope not! because you can be sure that St Brandon is a real paradise on earth which promises you a lifetime experience second to none!
