Swimming with dolphins & watching whales
On Mauritius west coast you have the unique opportunity to watch dolphins frolicking in the water. The skipper of the speedboat will take you to the place where you can watch the dolphins. You will even have the chance to swim with them and watch them at first hand in their natural environment so do not forget to take your snorkel, fin and mask. On a lucky day you can find yourself in a group of 20-30 dolphins at one time. The mother dolphins with their babies are very special and impressive to watch. If you listen carefully you can hear the dolphins ‘singing’ under the water!
Some companies only want to earn money with these dolphin trips and they chase them in order to get close to them. Living under such a stress factor, the dolphins will sooner or later find another place to rest.
But not all companies are like this. Our partner makes sure that the dolphins are treated in a respective way and the chief skipper even leads an environment protection group. In this group they fight for new laws which will help to protect the dolphins and whales.
It is more fun knowing that the dolphins are not subject to cruel chases and it also gives you an unforgettable experience!
