Ile aux Cerfs Island Tour: The Most Popular Tourist Attraction in Mauritius

Our full-day speed boat trip to Ile Aux Cerfs island will make certain that you have a memorable day filled with fun, excitement, and discovery while enjoying the breathtaking scenery. Ile aux Cerfs island is located on the east coast of Mauritius, some kilometers away from Blue-Bay/Belle Mare/Trou d’eau Douce village areas.

Get to know the Mauritian culture and be a part of it! Cruise the turquoise waters of Trou d’eau Douce in one of our powerful speedboats. The cruise leaves from the embarkation point at 9.30 AM and heads to Ile aux Cerfs. The award-winning beach is ideal for snorkeling or simply relaxing.

We will then visit Ile aux Mangenie around 11.30 am, which is an islet near Ile aux Cerfs where lunch will be prepared and served. There is a BBQ lunch included in the package, but if you are a fan of lobsters, you can order them for an additional cost. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available throughout lunch.

Around 1.30 pm, travel back on the speedboat to the Grand River South East Waterfall where you can take amazing photos & enjoy the breathtaking views of the waterfall from the speedboat. After that, the crew will cruise at high speed for about 45 minutes to reach Trou d’eau douce where your driver will be awaiting you if you booked transportation with us.

About ile aux Cerfs island in Mauritius (DEER ISLAND)

A privately-owned island, at the tip of the East coast of Mauritius, is called ‘Ile aux Cerfs’. The lagoon boasts a beautiful turquoise color that’s a pleasure for swimming and due to the shallow depth of the water, it’s also ideal for children to enjoy playing.

Why visit Ile aux Cerfs Island?

Ile aux Cerfs is an island worth visiting for a day trip full of water sports activities such as parasailing, snorkeling, tube riding, underwater walking, and water skiing, to name just a few. Normally, these activities (aside from snorkeling) aren’t included in the tour price, so be sure to set aside some cash if you intend to do those activities.
The island also features a stunning sandbar that stretches out to the ocean, which is another noteworthy feature of the island. On low tide, the sandbar is completely exposed, and it makes for an exciting backdrop for photographs.
The island has a few restaurants, but they are expensive, so most people opt to book a tour that includes a BBQ lunch on the island.

Book Early & go during weekdays if possible

Since it is Mauritius Island’s most popular tourist attraction, boat tours to Ile aux Cerfs tend to book fast. Therefore, it’s recommended that you book at least a few days in advance to guarantee a spot. It is also a good idea to plan your trip during the week, as the island can get crowded at the weekend.

How to get to Ile aux Cerfs island

Ile aux Cerfs can only be reached by boat. Boats depart primarily from Trou D’Eau Douce on the east coast or from Pointe Jerome on the southeast coast. Only a few depart from the north.

Best package

When you book a tour of Ile aux Cerfs, you will not have to worry about any planning since hotel transfers, boat transfers, food, drinks, and activities like snorkeling will already be included. All you have to do is relax, enjoy unlimited drinks, and cruise along the ocean!

The Waterfall

The advantage of taking a tour over organizing your own Ile aux Cerfs day trip is that you will also get to visit the waterfall at GRSE. The unique thing about this waterfall is that it flows directly into the ocean, which means you can get very close to it if you go there by boat. Otherwise, you will need to hire a separate boat or hike from the mainland.

Great service

Found these guys online and it was much more cheaper than hotel. We were picked up at 7am and taken to the embarkation point. Lunch on the beach was excellent. The views are incredible especially when you are doing the parasailing . We also visited the waterfall. To sum up it was a great day. Booking over watsapp, so very convenient! Would definitely recommend.

Nice underseawalk experience

We were in Mauritius for 3 days only and we decided to book the speedboat trip and it was worth every penny. Our driver was very kind and humorous, he also pointed out and described to us some places while we were going to the jetty. Even the boat was modern and well maintained. We enjoyed the underseawalk the most. Had a nice BBQ lunch on the beach. It was a great trip Would surely recommend you to do the trip while in Mauritius.
