I will never forget this experience!!! Flying over the (illusion of) underwater waterfall was the reason I came to Mauritius. Expectations were high but in reality it was even better. Such a nice French couple. Just do it!

The flight was 20 mins and worth every penny. Seeing the island from those views was incredible. The pilot was awesome, funny and well informed. We took two flights as it was so good. If you are on holiday, it is definitely worth it 10/10

The 30 minutes flight was fantastic. Apart from the underwater waterfall we saw dolphins and turtles from the air. The pilot and rest of the team were great. I felt very safe during the flight!
