If you are going to Reunion, DO THIS TRIP
We took the "Cata Passion" tour - a 3 hour trip on a Catamaran to see the whales and enjoy the sunset on a good sized catamaran with about 14 guests only.
Yes, we saw several whales, but that's never a guarantee and not really fair to rate this company on. What we can say is that the Cata Passion trip is one of their most expensive options (about 60 Euros each) but you get drinks, food, a limited number of guests and a fabulous experience for your money. Reunion is not a cheap island, so to be fair the price was really good in relation to the whole island too (for example, it's 250 Euros for a 50 minute helicopter trip).
The other major positive was the crew. Both of the chaps (Franck and Olivier) spoke English and were wiling to talk to myself and my wife independently to the rest of the guests who were French.
If you don't book at the marina with the company, then make sure you know where exactly to go. We didn't ask the booking agent at the hotel and then cut it a little fine trying to find the marina and the company (it's not hard to find if you know).
Ultimately, the message is just do it, particularly if there is a good chance you will see whales.
