Whale Watching

If you’re feeling frazzled today, we’re bringing you a dose of calm. Just listen to the soothing sounds of this whale and her calf.

They were sighted off the west coast of the island and we caught them on camera, gracefully rising from the water, playfully intertwining, the youngster keen to stick by mum.

The ocean surrounding Mauritius is key whale-spotting territory, especially along the west coast. Sperm whales can be seen year-round, and humpback whales migrate through from July to November.

Who is loving the whale wellbeing today?
