Dolphin Watching Trip with lunch onboard - Full Day

Enjoy a Full-day activity on the west coast, including a swim with dolphins and lunch on Benitiers Island

A unique experience of swimming with dolphins in their natural surroundings!

This is definitely one of the best things to do in Mauritius.

Unlike many other dolphin facilities that limit swimming with dolphins to pools or shallow water encounters, we provide the unique opportunity to enter the dolphins’ natural environment and enjoy an encounter with the dolphins in the open sea.

Once you get on board the speed boat, the skipper will brief you on the experience you are about to have.

The briefing will also include such aspects as:

  • Types of dolphins which you will encounter
  • Dolphin’s habits
  • Guidelines for sustainable dolphin watching
  • Security measures on the boat
  • Swimming with dolphins procedures

Then you will be off for two and a half wonderful hours in the open sea....

Swimming with dolphins offers a rewarding, educational, therapeutic and amazing experience for everyone!

After the 2.5 hours outing with the dolphins, you will be traveling to L’ile aux Benitiers for lunch and spend the afternoon in a magnificent lagoon. You will also visit Crystal Rock and have a magnificent view on Le Morne Mountain.

The wonderful cooks will start preparing the lunch as soon as you will be on the island and within an hour you will be eating a delicious lunch of grilled treats including Grilled Kebabs, Seafood and Fish, Chicken, Sausages and other accompaniments plus drinks.

After lunch you can enjoy some relaxation time - have the leisure to tan on the beach, walk around the endless beach of the island or explore the amazing lagoons and coral reefs around the island.

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 lived 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.

Comments & Notes

  • Note: There is a high probability of seeing Dolphins. However, if they are not spotted, there will be no refund or rescheduling.
  • The trip is not recommended for pregnant women.
  • This trip is done on speed boats, as it is much easier to look for the dolphins in comparison to catamarans which take much more time to arrive at the Dolphins sites. With a catamaran you will have less time to spend with the dolphins and more time will be spent on the journey there and back.

  • Upon request we can also arrange your transport from and back to your hotel.
  • Note: clients with limited mobility need to specify their weight
