PRIVATE ISLAND WEDDING

The ultimate romantic wedding destination

Say “YES” on your own private secluded island… Gabriel Island provides the perfect setting: removed enough to experience magical moments of intimacy with your family and friends, yet accessible by sea within less than one and a half hour of easy cruising.

A spacious, beautifully decorated catamaran will take you to the island for for a very private beach wedding ceremony. The island is 42 hectares in size and a Government-declared Nature Reserve dedicated to the preservation of many rare and endangered species. It is home to a large number of endemic plants and native birds, including the emblematic tropic bird. It is also known for its white sandy beach, crystal clear waters, a beautiful coral garden and spectacular coastal scenery.

Schedule:

Very flexible: you can hire the catamaran for up to 8 hours any time after 08h00. We recommend a return journey at sunset to witness the sky change from shades of pinks and blues to magnificent golden colours as you sail back towards the glimmering lights of Grand Bay – what could be a more romantic way to end a perfect day? Also, large pods of dolphins, looking for rest and shelter for their young ones, are often spotted at that time of day.
