Activity details

Meet up at the office at 8:15 to set off from the Gosier marina at 8:45. Adeline and her warm crew, your captain Jérôme, your guide, host, and DJ Laurent, and all of the others, your hosts Marjorie and Aloïs will happily welcome you in good spirits. Your guide will provide explanations of the natural and historic locations that you will see during the tour: the Mémorial Acte, the Pointe à Pitre market, the Rivière Salée… At around 10:00, you will be offered a welcome drink with or without alcohol (fresh fruit juice, Planteur, Ti-punch), as well as some sandwiches, as is the tradition here in the Caribbean.

Ambiance bateau mouche

You will then sail towards the heart of the Grand-Cul-de-Sac-Marin’s nature reserve for about an hour and half, with explanations of the mangrove’s wildlife and plants.

As you approach the biggest coral reef in the West indian (25 kilometers long), you will be offered a lesson in Caribbean dancing styles (Kuduro, Biguine, Zouk…) if you are not already on the dance floor, because on this festively-colored party boat, you are invited to dance from the start!

You will finally see the little piece of heaven that is Ilet Caret. You will be invited to get off the boat from the gangway at the back of the boat to go snorkeling (gear not provided) or simply admire the surroundings of this little sand spit. You can stay on the boat if you want. Expect to stay on the islet, which has no more shade because of the natural erosion caused by the strong currents, for an hour. The crew will offer you an aperitif while your feet are in the sand, listening to live music. A treasure hunt can be organized depending on the day. Return to the Gosier marina for 16:15.
