Full description

Explore the crystalline waters off the coast of Mauritius on this exciting speedboat adventure. Swim with dolphins, snorkel along the coral reef and see the majestic humpback whales. After a briefing by the crew, your tour on board a speedboat begins. The skippers will be at your entire disposal during this private boat excursion. After a few moments of cruising, observe the dolphins swimming around the boat. You can even enjoy a swim surrounded by the dolphins. To respect these fascinating marine mammals and their environment, there will be a briefing explaining the approach and swimming rules before the start of the excursion. The dolphin encounter ends with a snorkel on the coral reef. Next, go for a 3-hour whale watching trip. In Mauritius humpback whales can be observed between June and October/November and Sperm whales can be seen the whole year. There is a 60% chance to see the whales. There's no refund in case of no observation. During the trip water and soft drinks are served. The excursion takes place from 7:00 am to 12:30 pm.

The animals were treated as respectfully as possible, which cannot be said of the other organizers. Our two guides were always courteous and very polite. There was water and soft drinks on board. All of our requests were always received. Any time.

Rigtig god tur. Guiderne var gode til at informere om turforløbet og vi syntes de tog meget hensyn til delfinerne/hvalerne når de sejlede efter/rundt om dem ift. mange af de andre både, hvor det virkede som om man nærmest jagtede dem og stressede dem.
