    What to Expect
    Your day starts at Black River at 7am with breakfast. At 7:30am it is time to board the speed boats for an unforgettable outing. After a few minutes of sailing, you will see the dolphins swimming, playing, and jumping around the boats. If you want, you can go into the water 2 by 2 with a skipper and see the dolphins swimming under you. During a briefing, your skippers will explain to you the approach and swimming rules to respect the dolphins and their environment. A snorkeling session on the coral reef will be the end of a great outing. Return is planned around 10am to Black River.

    We have booked the Dolphin swim experience at the last minute. They have offered breakfast and shower facilities before you start the journey. The day we went, it wasn't easy to see the dolphin under the water. but we were offered many opportunities until we finally saw them.
