Since the boys did not have school we took a day long trip to the far northwest side of the island, to the very touristy spot of Grand Baie. It was very nice, but it is very high end and built up, and thus does not look like most of Mauritius.
Grand Baie is the center for big time deep sea fishing, and the world record marlin was caught off this coast. There are many charter companies along this section of the island. Here are Will and Neya posing in front of one of the boats. In the background you see a big catamaran, which is the boat we chartered for December 2nd, when we will all go on a day long cruise around the island.
Sorry - should have rotated this before I posted. Here is Sam in front of some of the recent catch boards for deep sea fishing. This one was for a 374 lb Black Marlin. Other game fishes are tuna, skipjack, shark and marlin.
Will at Grand Baie.
