Kayak around Anse Source D’Argent, explore a cave, hike and learn about nature!
This is a 3-hour fully-guided tour around La Digue; timings and tour itineraries are sea/weather dependent. Departure times are dependent solely on the tides, which is why starting times can be anywhere between 09:00 and 16:00 (meaning some tours may finish as late at 19:30). To avoid disappointment, we therefore strongly recommend not booking this activity if you’re planning to arrive/depart La Digue on the same day.

Start your tour with a 1 hour guided kayak tour from Anse Source D’Argent* where you can take pictures with the iconic boulders on La Digue. Then you’ll head on over to the reef where you will be shown different formations of coral, fish nurseries and maybe even some stingrays hidden in the lagoon. You will kayak slowly down Anse Source D’Argent beach while taking in the amazing panoramic views from the ocean and making three small stops to learn about the granite formations.
You will continue on this tour by heading over to Anse Pierrot, which is only accessible from the ocean, where parts of the movie ‘Robinson Crusoe‘ were filmed in 1988! Here you have the opportunity to swim, explore the caves, take pictures after which you will be taken on a small hike to an awesome viewpoint. After returning to the beach you will get a small survival lesson on ‘how to break open a coconut’. After this, you will kayak back to Anse Source D’Argent while enjoying the nature surrounding you and taking some last photos.
From June till October, the sea/weather conditions are not always ideal due to the windy season. During this period, the kayak tour may start in Anse Severe. For your comfort & safety, you will then be taken to Anse Source D’Argent by boat for the remainder of the tour, making a number of stops along La Digue’s incredible shoreline. Please see the other tabs for more info.
