What people are saying about Grande Riviere Noire

Our family had an amazing experience swimming with the dolphins. The captain on the boat was excellent, he took us to multiple locations to give us the best possible chance to get amongst the dolphins. His final spot was excellent, pod of dolphins numbering about 25 /30, he put the boat in the desired position and told us when to go for it. We got really close to the dolphins with everyone experiencing being surrounded by the dolphins. The captains local knowledge was superb and I thought the price was excellent for a party of 8 people. To actually get right in amongst the dolphins was an amazing experience for us all, and one we will never forget.

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.

Loved it! Superb crew, they make both both adults and babies feel very welcome. Tasty food and over all a great experience to enjoy beautiful Mauritius from a catamaran.

This was very good, well planned, well trained and friendly staff. Saw and swam with loads of dolphins. What a great experience.

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