Dolphins in Mauritius

Say hello to our friendly neighbours!

This pod of dolphins is regularly seen off the coastline of Mauritius and swimming with them in the wild is one of life’s most special moments. Just don’t forget to respect their underwater world and let them come to you if they choose.

The west coast is their favourite playground and you can see both bottlenose and spinner dolphins here, often travelling in pods of 20. Sometimes we are lucky enough to spot over 100 sliding through the water to the deeper ocean off Le Morne peninsula!

Would you like to glide through the water among these graceful and intelligent creatures?
