Swim With Dolphins - Once in a lifetime Activity
A unique experience swimming with dolphins in their natural surroundings creating memories to last for a lifetime!
Swimming with dolphins is an incredibly moving experience which will bring you into contact with strikingly beautiful scenery, unspoiled landscapes and wonderful marine animals.
Your Speed Ride: You will get on board a speed boat to take you on this beautiful journey to meet your favourite sea animal, the dolphins. Get comfortable, put your life jackets on and get ready for a thrilling speed boat ride. Your skippers will tell you all you need to know about how the day will unfold. They will also gladly brief you on the dolphins, guidelines for sustainable dolphin watching, security measures on the boat and the swimming with dolphins procedures.
Swim with the dolphins: The west coast is particularly renowned for whales and dolphin watching. As part of this package you will do more than just watch them, you will get to swim amongst the friendly dolphins. Swimming with dolphins is an incredibly moving experience which will bring you into contact with strikingly beautiful scenery, unspoiled landscapes and wonderful animals. Plunge into the remarkable world of these marine mammals and come face to face with the dolphins. Unlike many other dolphin facilities that limit a swim with dolphins to pools or shallow water encounters, you will have the unique opportunity to enter the dolphins’ natural environment and enjoy an encounter with the dolphins in the open sea for 2.5 hours!
Complimentary refreshments & Cruising back: You will be provided with water and soft drinks on the boat. After a nice swim, you would want to gulp something other than salty sea water. The skippers will be glad to tend you a bottle of water or soft drink to quench your thirst. Get back onboard, settle down with your drink and sip away happily thinking of your most recent encounter. If you are lucky enough, your newly found friends might even swim along the boat while you are on your way back. You will be heading back to the departure point where your journey will end, on a dolphin-tastic note!
A little information about Dolphins in Mauritius:
Dolphins are one of the most fantastic creatures that live in the ocean. The dolphins - cheerful and playful, symbol of intelligence and grace.
Dolphins live in pods of around 20 individuals or more and can be observed swimming casually from Tamarin (on the west coast of Mauritius) on their way to the deep sea off the coast of le Morne peninsula, early in the morning.
The Dolphins, the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin, have made the West Coast of Mauritius a place for them to rest and sleep before going to the deep sea for their fishing.
The Bottlenose Dolphin is one of the most common and well-known dolphins. Bottlenose Dolphins are Grey in color and can be between 2 and 4 meters (6.6 and 13 ft) long, and weigh between 150 and 650 kilograms (330 and 1,400 lb). Bottlenose Dolphins live in groups called pods that typically are of 15 dolphins, but it is also possible to find groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 dolphins. Their diet consists mainly of small fish.
The Spinner Dolphin is dark gray, with darker patches in the tail stock, back and throat. Usually it has creamy-white patch on the belly though this varies considerably. The beak is distinctively long and thin, with a dark tip. The fins too are lengthy for dolphins of this size. Adults have varied in size from 129 cm to 235 cm and weight from 23 kg to 78 kg. The gestation period is 10 months. Individuals reach maturity at 4-7 years (females) and 7-10 years (males). Longevity is unknown. Spinners congregate in groups that vary from just a few dolphins to great schools numbering in the thousands.
