A Fisherman’s Life

This family-friendly experience gives you a taste of local fisherman’s life in pursuit of catch on the Indian Ocean. The day starts with a drive to the harbour at Mahebourg, where you will see the local fishermen gearing up and getting ready for their day at sea. You will then board a traditional fishing boat and set off to explore the calm turquoise waters of Mahebourg Bay, which is protected by dozens of small islets and larger offshore islands. The skipper will demonstrate the technique of hand lining for the smaller species of fish which thrive in the shallower waters near the coast, and you will have a whole morning to catch your dinner, relax onboard and explore the offshore islands. The boat will then return to Mahebourg Harbour in time for a seafood lunch of lobster grilled fish. There will then be a visit to Rault Biscuit Factory to see how their famous cookies are manufactured, and of course sample the end products, before returning to your hotel in the late afternoon.
