What to expect

Located north of the Rivière Salée, between Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre, the Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin Nature Reserve opens onto a transparent lagoon sheltered by the largest barrier reef in the Lesser Antilles. This protected site is characterized by the diversity of its fauna and underwater flora.

We'll meet up with you at 8.30am for a lovely day on our sailing catamaran. Sailing is ideal to discover the location’s wonders in nature’s silence. Enjoy the sunbaths at the front of the boat or a drink on the shaded benches at the back of the boat...

After an hour of sailing, you'll dive in a shipwreck and watch the tropical fish up close: majestic sensations and strong emotions guaranteed! We will then stop at the Îlet Caret for an aperitif with our feet in the water and a break on white sand.

We'll sail again to the Îlet Fajou Nature Reserve for a typical local meal served on board: marlin rillettes and green salad, followed by a typical chicken with sauce chien (dog sauce) with rice and plantain bananas. For dessert, you will be served fresh seasonal fruit with coffee*. You will be able to rest or dive in the coral reef, or even go on a canoe trip in this idyllic setting.

Around 4.00pm, we'll leave Fajou in the warmth of the Caribbean afternoons to be back at the departure point around 5.00pm.

*The drinks you can have with your meal are water, red wine, or rosé.
