I am going to Mauritius next year (Easter 2015) for a wedding, and was considering chartering a yacht / catamaran for a week after the wedding.

Does anyone have any experience of sailing around Mauritius? How easy / difficult would it be? Are the reefs an issue?

I have Day Skipper quals, may do YM before the trip, and have quite a bit of crewing experience (solent, med, caribbean, 2x transatlantics) and some skippering / chartering experience (BVIs and Croatia). My "crew" would have very little / no experience, so I'm a bit concerned about (a) being able to charter anything and (b) how difficult it might be with a crew with limited experience.

So any advice / tips would be gratefully received!

Also - bareboat chartering doesn't seem to be the done thing in Mauritius. The best site I could find with much of a selection is charter
If anyone has any suggestions on better websites / charter companies in Mauritius please let me know!

Many thanks!
