    What to Expect
    Meeting at 7am at Black River Mauritius for a small breakfast. At 7.30am, take place on one of our speed boats for an unforgettable encounter. You will see the dolphins in their natural environment. And if you want you can swim with them. Always 2 persons with the skipper. Of course we will explain you some rules. First part of the excursion ends with a snorkeling on the coral reef.

    Time to go to the whales. With hydrophones our crew will try to localize them. Humpback whales can be observed between June and November while Sperm Whales can be observed all year round. A sandwich and some drinks will be served during trip

    Return 1pm

    We guarantee 60% chance to see the whales
