Leave the marina of St Gilles and meet the dolphins or turtles which you can sometimes see as soon as you come out of the marina!
As for the whales, the mating season lasts from June to mid-October, that’s when you will have a good chance of observing them in Reunion’s warm waters.
Guidelines on approaching whales, dolphins and turtles
So that we can observe them for many more years, you will be able to approach marine animals by following a few rules:
* minimum distance to be respected with the whales: 100 m
* for dolphins and turtles: 50 m
* slow down as animals approach
* limit to 5 the number of boats under observation
* avoid encirclement
* move in parallel with their movements
* do not pursue them
Our boats are rented without skipper, so you will have to be in possession of a coastal permit to be able to rent our semi-rigid, stable and efficient BWA boats, by the half day:
- 1 Small reliable, comfortable and economical semi-rigid boat / 90 hp engine / awning / cushions + sunlounge / boarding max 10 people.

Security equipment included.
Moored to the buoys provided for this purpose, you can enjoy a picnic at sea, or "simply" enjoy an unforgettable sunset by sharing an aperitif.
NB: for your comfort, do not forget sunscreen, cap or hat, water bottle, camera or Smartphone, finally your USB key with your favorite music to insert in our USB reader ...
Our boats are rented to you with a full gas tank, for you to refuel as you come back from your trip at sea (at the service station of the port of St Gilles).
