Boat trips are the main activity here, usually combined with diving and snorkelling.
Like Mahébourg to the north, Blue Bay is home to numerous operators offering journeys on glass-bottomed boats and excursions to the nearby islands. Travellers should be careful, however, when choosing a boatswain here – the area has seen an increased number of drug dealers and addicts in recent years and a handful of them have been drawn to tourism. Always seek a recommendation from a local or your hotel before handing over any money. Also, the tides vary greatly in this part of the island; only a knowledgeable tour leader will know the optimal times for going to sea. Recommended operators:
