Ilot gabriel et Catamaran Tours

A lot of stuffs have been happening since sometimes and very few time to write on any of them. Maybe too many things happening too quickly. But anyway, the blog is back on air with a tons of posts waiting to be digested
We are in Holidays in Mauritius. The months of November and December are the summer holidays for the Mauritians and most persons are wondering what they could do to change from the past summers. Where haven't they been to in Mauritius? Have you been to the nearby islands?
Hint: Ile aux aigrettes, Ile aux benitiers, Ilot gabriel, Ile aux cerfs

Not many Mauritians have indeed had the chance to visit the nearby islands, some because it is too expensive and the others because they don't know how to or Maybe because it's too much a trouble that they don't feel like bothering themselves for during the holidays (Mauritians are quite lazy in general! lol!)

On the way to the Ilot Gabriel, you will get the chance to take nice shots of the Coin de Mire which is quite amazing or should i say astonishing.

Picture of the Catamaran Royal Cruise which is really spacious and able to accomodate around 30 persons from what I could count. It is really a safe boat with all facilities. You are even served unlimited drinks on board and on the island.

The Mauritius Endemic Bird Paille-En-Queue also known as the Paille en cul due to its tail. It is the first i get to get see so many of them. I counted around 30 of those just on the island.

The Paille En Queue here flying freely in the Mauritian Sky. It is a very pleasant bird to watch and it is not at all frightened by the presence of humans.

Crawled down into the nest of the Paille-en-queue. Really amazed and astonished when I found two of those wonders lying there. It is the first time I get so close to one of them and will probably be an everlasting memory.

We were served delicious spaghetti, with grilled chicken, grilled fish, sausages, bread and salad. The desert was some sort of banana split. Not bad at all. You can eat as much as you can.

Those islands are the Ile au Phare and Penship (from what the skipper told me). They looked really great from where we were.

The mast of the Catamaran boat. Really amazing, it was around 20ft tall(6-7 metres). It was not the last picture I took during the trip but the post is becoming too long and I got to end it now.
Keep Tuned. The Eagle's Lodge is back Live and Rocking..
