When Christine arrived on holiday from Cape Town, the Mauritian cruises sparked an interaction with the ocean that she never experienced on her own Atlantic seas. The warm atmosphere and comfort of the Mauritian lifestyle – coupled of course, with Jacques' piercing blue eyes and charm – were enough to convince her to settle down on the island. Since then, they have shared the adventure of a growing business whilst raising their own family, their whole life revolving around boats and the sea, in Trou d'Eau Douce village where Jacques had lived his most cherished sea experience as a child.

The duo still complements each other beautifully today: Jacques runs the operations and maintenance at sea while Christine takes on the administrative load of the venture. Their children were brought up in the cool shade of the sails while the crew grew to create an extended family that fosters a welcoming atmosphere on board. With them, the words adventure, comfort, one-time experiences, flexibility and kindness take on a whole new meaning...

And be kind to Gros Matou, he is the star of the household after all. The sweet cat might give you a purring welcome while lazily stretching out under the veranda. Be sure to scratch him behind the ears to instantly feel at home in our precious family venture.
