2-hour Private Speedboat Trip with Dolphins Encounter
The speedboat will head towards a specific area where you can encounter dolphins in their natural habitat. This is a unique chance to see these magnificent marine mammals swimming and occasionally leaping. Dolphins are highly social animals, and in Mauritius, they often live in pods of up to a dozen individuals. They can be observed swimming from the west coast of Mauritius, on their way to the deep sea off the coast of the Le Morne peninsula.
Then, the speedboat will stop at a key location, where you can enjoy a snorkelling break in the Indian Ocean. Snorkelling is a great way to get a glimpse into the mesmerizing marine life and the underwater world of Mauritius.
Enjoy exploring the rich diverse marine ecosystem in our crystal-clear waters. Don’t be surprised if you come across turtles and a range of colourful fish including angelfish, damselfish and clownfish, amongst others.
Additional Information about Dolphins in Mauritius
Dolphins are perhaps the most fantastic of all the creatures that live in the ocean. Cheerful and playful, dolphins are a symbol of intelligence and grace.
The most common dolphins in Mauritius are the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin.
The Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin have chosen the West Coast of Mauritius as their place for rest and sleep, before heading 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 colour and measure between 2 to 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 have about 15 dolphins, but group size varies from solitary bottlenose dolphins to groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 dolphins. Their diet consists mainly of small fish.
The Spinner Dolphin is dark grey, with darker patches in the tailstock, back and throat. Usually it has a creamy-white patch on the belly though this varies considerably. The beak is distinctively long and thin, with a dark tip. The fins are also lengthy for dolphins of this size. Adults vary in size from 120 cm to 235 cm and weigh from 23 kg to 78 kg. Individuals reach maturity at 4-7 years (females) and 7-10 years (males). The Spinner Dolphins congregate in groups that vary from just a few dolphins to great schools numbering thousands.
