    Meeting time at 7 a.m. in Black River Mauritius for a light breakfast. At 7:30 a.m. you will leave on one of our speed boats for an unforgettable encounter. You will observe wild dolphins in their natural environment. If the conditions are right, you can also swim with them, accompanied by a skipper (max 2 persons at a time). We will first explain you the rules for a respectful encounter with the dolphins. The first part of this excursion ends with a snorkeling on the coral reef. Then it is time to go observe the whales. With the help of a hydrophone, our crew will try to localize them. Humpback whales can be observed between June and November while Sperm whales can be observed all year round. A sandwich and soft drinks will be served during the trip. Return around 1 p.m. We guarantee a 60% chance to see the whales.

    Booked and pre paid for dolphin encounter and whale watching. Upon getting to the bay where the dolphins were, there was a large number of other tour boats there all doing the same thing and a number of swimmers in the water. We were told that only 2 of us could go in the water

    Julian and Fabian were our crew, Whale watching - best experience* (way better than the hermanus tour, I did in South Africa.) Very patient and they make sure everybody gets their chance to see the dolphins swim underwater. All in all - a well organized trip, better than what

    It was a very early morning, but so worth it! Very nice and friendly crew, who handled the boat perfectly. First we found a large school of dolphines (incredibly lucky!), around 300 both Spinners and Bottle nose! We stayed with the dolphines until all had had two chances to swim
