What people are saying about Grande Riviere Noire

The whole ride was amazing Although it started with a little disappointment as our group got a different boat as we expected (we call speed boat something else), and the smell of petrol was making us sick, BUT with this amazing staff we had a wonderful experience we saw whales so close to us , swam with dolphins - even touched them , saw turtles, flying fishes and did snorkeling with a group of amazing fishes We finally enjoyed the whole day so much as the guys on the boat were super helpful and entertaining All together we highly recommend this company as they really respect nature but help you to see all the beauties of the ocean (Other boats were chasing the whales that was really annoying!!!)

Wow what a fantastic experience. I know the chance of seeing whales was not very high so when we saw so many I was just blown away. We saw pilot whales, sperm whales and white tip sharks. I wasn't sure about swimming with dolphins at first but the skippers (Ronaldo and Fabio) were clear about respecting them and how to keep safe for both you and the marine life so I felt comfortable. Oh I am so glad I did! It was just a brief moment but swimming above and along side 3 dolphins was unbelievable. The snorkeling after was great too. Thank you for the wonderful memories Ronaldo and Fabio.

An unforgettable experience - everything was fabulous. We saw two humpback whales (mother and baby) even though it’s not the season, got close whilst keeping a respectful distance. We then swam with countless dolphins, they swam right up to us and we got to see them playing around us. Snorkelling was a fun way to finish the trip too. Our two guides were excellent and friendly, and the whole day was well worth it. You can’t guarantee you’ll see whales but it’s worth it in case you do.

Great trip! Saw whales and dolphins, had stop for snorkeling. Everything was good organized.

Excellent, we saw several whales and a lot of dolphins!
