Swim with wild dolphins off Mauritius on this life-affirming trip! Traveling by speedboat, head for waters that dolphins are known to favor, and watch or swim around these intelligent mammals in their natural habitat — the open sea. Afterward, cruise to the gorgeous Bénitiers Island (L’Ile aux Bénitiers) for a scrumptious barbecue lunch on the beach, complete with alcoholic drinks and sodas. Then, lounge on the sand, swim or snorkel in the turquoise lagoons, visit clam-shaped Crystal Rock, or absorb the epic views over Le Morne Brabant Mountain.


Start early from Black River and search for ‘Spinner’ and ‘Bottleneck’ Dolphins in comfortable motorboats. The well-trained crew will guide you when and how to get into the water and how to behave with these wonderful creatures. After this unique experience, you can snorkel to your heart’s content before cruising to the long beach of Benitiers (Clam) Island.

- lots of dolphins
- friendly and skilled skippers
- the island was very pretty, and Crystal Rock is a really nice sight
- the lunch was tasty

- poor snorkeling site, few things to see, and the water was deep, so you couldn't see the corals well
- upon arriving on the island, we were told to wait for the lunch instead of going for a walk, we understood that it would be served shortly, instead we ended up waiting for an hour, instead of using the time to explore the island

It was an awesome experience. First time in my lifetime. My sons were super excited and loved swimming with the dolphins. Fantastic afternoon spent on an island with some delicious food. Definitely recommend it!!

We got to the Mid-sea on time and there were Dolphins and Dolphins and Dolphins to welcome us.
When my four year old daughter refused to enter the sea, the Crew kindly agreed to take care of her while I snorkelled. I shall Never forget this favor.
For the first time, I saw that the Dolhins swim in Perfect Geometric Patterns. And they they Change these Patterns flawlessly as they change directions or come to the surface......
The Dolphins are soo soooo Disciplined, I finally understood why they are called "A SCHOOL of Fish"!!!!
I am a Vegetarian and the Crew had packed a seperate delicious veggie lunch for my and my kids.
What I appreciate the Most {Aside from the Dolphins} is the fact that they did Not take us anywhere other than what was told......
NO NO NO Useless / unwanted stops at some Mall or Handicraft Factory.... ONLY Dolphins and Lunch ....
The Crew speaks passable English and Good French.

A very good tour. Would highly recommend that hotel pick up and drop offs should be included in the tour inclusions.
