La Curieuse was conceived with the idea of being a platform for research missions in the Kerguelen archipelago.
Today the boat La Curieuse is in Mauritius, it continues to be chartered for scientific missions but it is also chartered by Water Expeditions to help our riders discover à la carte sailing!

All year round, Water Expeditions organizes expeditions, kitesurfing, surfing, diving, scuba diving, underwater hunting, fishing…etc

From May to October, come and ride in the St Brandon Archipelago.
In June, we board at Madagascar, around Anakao, Sarodrano, Ifaty and the Bay of the Assassins.
