    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Dolswim, La Jetee Road Black River, Grande Riviere Noire, Mauritius

    Meeting time at 7 a.m. in Black River Mauritius for a light breakfast. At 7:30 a.m. you will leave on one of our speed boats for an unforgettable encounter. You will observe wild dolphins in their natural environment. If the conditions are right, you can also swim with them, accompanied by a skipper (max 2 persons at a time). We will first explain you the rules for a respectful encounter with the dolphins. The first part of this excursion ends with a snorkeling on the coral reef.

    Then it is time to go observe the whales. With the help of a hydrophone, 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 soft drinks will be served during the trip.

    Return around 1 p.m.

    We guarantee a 60% chance to see the whales.

    Duration: 5 hours

    What a fantastic morning. We were looked after well by Jason and David. We were lucky and swam with lots of Bottlenose and Spinner dolphins, saw several pods of Pilot whales and then experienced tropical fish whilst snorkeling over the coral reef. Thank you 😃🐠🐬🐋🐟
