A unique Exclusive 3 hours experience of watching whales in their natural surroundings!

Encountering whales is an incredibly moving experience. It is an encounter with one of the biggest animals on the planet and the feeling it brings you is as gigantic. It will bring you into contact with strikingly beautiful scenery, unspoiled landscapes and an unforgettable encounter with the giants of the ocean. You will enjoy sharing this day with your special people and have a common memory of it to last you forever.

A customizable and private moment to bond: Experiences like whale watching are probably the ones which mark us forever. The best way to make it more memorable is by sharing it with people who matter to us with this private trip. Live this unforgettable moment together and feel this mutual happiness and sense of peace this trip will provide you with. What is even better for this trip is that you can fully customise its course to suit your wants. You set the schedule and decide when to take a break, when to end the whale watching and when to stop the boat for snorkeling

Thrilling Speed Boat ride: You will get on a speed boat to take you to the whale watching site. Get comfortable, put your life jacket on and get ready for an exciting 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 whales and their habits, guidelines for sustainable whale watching, security measures on the boat and the kinds of whales you can encounter in the Mauritian waters.

Whale Watching: Encountering whales is an incredible experience - watch these remarkable mammals in the open sea as they swim beside the boat. With some luck, you may also see the whales jump out of the water or splash you with their huge tale, offering unique once-in-a-lifetime memories and picture-perfect moments. So get your camera ready because you will not want to miss a thing about this whole experience.

Refreshments & snorkelling: To make the happiness last longer, as part of this trip you will be able to snorkel near the reefs. You will discover the amazing underwater world where fish and anemones cohabit peacefully. Swim amongst colourful fishes, enjoy the surreal aquatic life which unfolds before you and live in the moment. Onboard you will be provided with refreshments, so whenever you feel a thirst coming up, ask your friendly skipper to throw you a bottle of water or fizzy drink. After your little snorkel activity, you will be taken back to Tamarin, feeling relaxed and still thinking of your whale watching experience.

A little information about Whales in Mauritius

It is possible to find many different types of whales in Mauritius. The most common whales are: Blainville's Beaked Whale, Gray's Beaked Whale, Dwarf Sperm Whale, and the Sperm Whale which is the most famous whale in Mauritius.

The Sperm Whale is the largest species of toothed whale, with adults growing to be about 15-18 meters (50-60 feet) long, and weighing about 45-70 tonnes. The body of sperm whales is robustly proportioned, with paddled-shaped flippers. The lower jaw is always relatively small and thin relative to the upper jaw. The Sperm Whale dives to great depths to find food, and it eats squid, fish, and even sharks.
