Dolphins Encounter and Whale Watching
Combine swimming with dolphins and whale watching in Mauritius in this hassle-free combo tour. Hop aboard a speedboat with a skipper and crew and prepare to catch sight of these amazing marine mammals in their natural habitat. Using the provided snorkel gear, get in the water and mingle with the dolphins. Then, listen to humpback and sperm whales communicate using the onboard hydrophones.
What to Expect
Meeting at 7am at Black River Mauritius for a small breakfast. At 7.30am, take place on one of our speed boats for an unforgettable encounter. You will see the dolphins in their natural environment. And if you want you can swim with them. Always 2 persons with the skipper. Of course we will explain you some rules. First part of the excursion ends with a snorkeling on the coral reef.

Time to go to the whales. With hydrophones our crew will try to localize them. Humpback whales can be observed between June and November while Sperm Whales can be observed all year round. A sandwich and some drinks will be served during trip
Return 1pm
We guarantee 60% chance to see the whales

Dolphin chase

A very nice trip to the sea, but the dolphins were in fact chased by 10-15 boats and we could only catch a glimpse of them.
