Dolphins – the cheerful and playful symbol of intelligence and grace can be observed off the West coast of Mauritius. The Spinners and the Bottlenose dolphins have chosen the West coast as their privileged place to rest and play before going into the deep sea to hunt. Dolphins live in pods of 20 or more and can be observed early in the morning, swimming casually from Tamarin Bay towards the deep sea off the coast of Le Morne Peninsula.
Dolphin watching is a major tourist attraction worldwide. In Mauritius, such attraction helps to diversify our tourist offering and create business opportunities for the locals. However, it has been noted that such activities are carried out in an unsustainable manner. DolSwim highly regards the environment and prides itself on its eco-friendly approach. The skipper will give you an in-depth briefing on the type of dolphins you will see and their habits, guidelines on sustainable dolphin watching, security measures on board and swimming procedures for a truly privileged moment on board.
