Embark on our signature trip for a unique experience in Mauritius! Observe & swim* with the dolphins, snorkel among tropical fishes and admire the most photographed rock of Mauritius against the magnificent and symbolic Le Morne mountain. Your Skippers will then bring you to Bénitiers island, where you will be welcomed, Mauritian style, with our Folkloric Sega musicians & dancers in a family atmosphere. Make yourself at home, sit back at the table, under the shade of the Marquee, or under the sun and enjoy our “jungle juice” and other drinks included. On the lunch menu: full buffet with local lobsters, fish, chicken and prawns, a variety of fresh salads, garlic bread & creole sauce. Local rum-flambéed bananas and fresh pineapple are served for dessert. Our musicians will spice up your meal with Mauritian and/or international music. After coffee, chill, enjoy a walk along the beach, or dip in the lagoon. Before leaving the island join in our final local Sega dance! Let yourself be carried by the beat of the Ravanne! ♪ ♫ ♬ Ala li la ♪ ♫ ♬

Morning Dolphin Trip

Morning Dolphin Trip

Observe and swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat. Our Skippers will make sure you have great visibility while respecting the dolphins & guidelines set by the local authority. We favour the Southern dolphin watching region, which is less busy, although, if not possible, we go towards the West. Snorkel in the turquoise lagoon: your skipper will bring you to the best spot depending on the itinerary (dolphins' location) and tide. Coral Rock: visit the famous fossilized coral, which “floats” on the water, against the background of the iconic Le Morne Mountain. If you don't have an underwater camera & wish to have photos, we also propose this option as supplement. Our team looks forward to host you!

Price per boat

1-2 people Rs 6,500 ≈175€

June-October is the season when humpback whales migrate near our coast. Whales are more difficulty spotted than dolphins, and often found further. There is a 50-60% chance of seeing them. You can book for both dolphins & whales or ,if you wish, decide to search for whales on the day. The Skipper can advise on the likelihood of sightings, however, it can't be guaranteed. A supplement, depending on the number of people, is applicable for whale search regardless of successful sightings. Swimming with whales is illegal in Mauritius unless it is for scientific purposes with the state's authorisation.


Make the most of your time on the water! You can combine dolphin watching and fishing with our experienced fishermen; and even add snorkeling & coral rock visit for half day or full day. Prices start as from Rs 14,000/ 375 euros for a boat of up to 4 people. Contact us for more details & rates.

Practical Information

  • Departure for all our trips is from Le Morne beach in the South West of Mauritius.
  • Swimming with dolphins will depend on conditions on the spot as your safety is our priority
  • Our dolphin trips are done in speedboats, which makes it quicker to reach to the dolphins spot compared to Catamaran, even if they are far from the departure point. Also, it is easier to manoeuvre/change direction at the dolphins spot, if needed.
  • It is advised to book the earliest possible date during your holidays – in case of bad weather, we can always postpone
