We took a half day trip with Belle Petra and were impressed with an extremely qualified Captain and a friendly and helpful staff. We would highly recommend this company for boat trips from La Digue.

We booked a half day trip on this boat. Visited Great Sister, Cocos and Felicite. The best dive was on Felicite Island where the water was very clear and we saw a lot of fish. Reccomended.
