Village Square | Dolphin House, Ponta do Ouro, Mozambique
We volunteered for 2 weeks. First, let me say 2 weeks is definitly not enough, we did not want to leave. We were not lucky with weather, the strong winds kept us from launching some days but on the days we launches it was simply...More
Had the most wonderful Dolphin swims in August 2018 and October 2017 with Dolphin Encountours Research Centre. Highly recommended. Wonderful people who are eco friendly and display respect for the dolphins and marine life of this area.
Staff were really Nice however there were no dolphins and no visibility to dive. If I am not mistaken it is advertised as a 2 hour trip. We had a briefing about dolphins for about 30 minutes, went out in search of dolphins.. after nothing...More

Thank you for your review, feedback and kind words about our crew.
It is always disappointing for both participants AND crew when we are not able to locate our local dolphins.
You are quite correct in saying that the trip is advertised at...More
What a fantastic activity!
If you are venturing to Ponta do Ouro for a vacation you must include this experience on your itinerary.
Angie and her team are super professional and start the morning off with a comprehensive briefing regarding the background to the operation,...More
What an eye opening experience, during the 30minute briefing period we learned so much about dolphins, it was insightful and educational, Angie is very passionate and it easily touches ones heart. We sadly didn't get to swim with them as the sea was a bit...More
We booked a 2 and a half hour swim with the dolphin and snorkel trip. Lady over charge on the bank machine. The whole trip and video took 1hour and 55 min. Total of time spend in water was 13 minutes.More

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to make sure that you swam with us as we do not show videos for our briefings, we brief in person. Our 2,5hr dolphin encountour includes 30-40 pre-launch briefing, safety talk and kit up. The rest of...More
Oh wow!! What an experience!
The boat journey was so exciting, even though I was petrified, Angie and her staff put you at ease very quickly.
We had two days of swims and each day we got to see the Dolphins and swim with them...More
What an amazing experience! We were definitely meant to go on the boat with Angie & Mitch! I was sooooo VERY scared that I was actually shaking as the ocean is not a place where I want to be on especially on a small boat,...More
Had a package with three launches with Angie and her professional team. Their snorkelling preps and pre-launch briefings are extremely good. Responsible interaction with the dolphins, whales and sealife is Angie's approach - they interact with you, not the other way round. The first launch...More
