Mauritius Catamaran Cruises to St Brandon

St Brandon (Saint Brandon), also known as Cargados Carajos Shoals, is a group of over 50 islands, coral ridges and vast sand flats on an extended reef in the Indian Ocean, situated 268 nautical miles north east of Mauritius. Classified as a dependency of Mauritius, St Brandon is part of the Mascarene Islands.


St Brandon is cut by three major passes and extends 50 km from north to south and 5 km wide. The reef area is 190 km2. It has perhaps the largest algal ridge (a structure formed by coralline algae on a coral reef) in the Indian Ocean.

There are indeed very few places on Earth left that modernization has not been able to touch. Man has re-visualized creation and redefined the physiographic of several places, suiting them to his ever-changing needs and desires.

St Brandon is one of those rare places to have escaped this transformation.

Catamaran Fishing Expedition to St Brandon:

 Fishing St Brandon Island Mauritius

When fishing at St. Brandon you are sure to target various species and to have a once in a life time fishing experience.

It is going to be the most spectacular bonefishing experience you will ever encounter! Most tides anglers can expect to see shoals of these shallow water speedsters. Over the past season we have landed Bonefish of up to 87cm fork length and weighing 15lbs.

St Brandon’s is also the most productive Indo-Pacific Permit fishery witnessed. When specifically targeting these gloriously finicky fish, guests can have multiple shots per day.

The GT fishing can be quite varied. Some days you can see over 100 fish and at other times none at all. St Brandon’s isn’t a place where you are going to get shots at GT’s everyday but it is certainly the place to break the 100 cm mark.
