My husband booked through our hotel and were picked up perfectly on time. As we had a small child we were advised to hire the boat for ourselves and although it cost more, I'm really happy we did. We had a lovely chat with our driver on the way. I hope I have remembered the names correctly, Carl was our captain and Marvin was our guide and a incredible swimmer! They're both kind, relaxed and very helpful and knowledgeable. The speedboat trip only felt about 15 minutes and we could see the dolphins straight away. I think we arrived early and possibly on a quiet day as there were only a few boats. We were fully advised about the wild dolphins and told they won't get close, but it was truly amazing. The water is so clear and if you keep swimming you can find yourself completely surrounded and what felt like within touching distance. Marvin kindly helped get a photo and video with my phone in an underwater case. The dolphins are so fast so just keep swimming! We did get in and out the boat a few times to get closer, but it was so wonderful to get back in the water and just keep listening and watching. It is tiring, but it was so worth it. The first sound of hearing them in the water and seeing them so clearly will be a memory I will never forget.

Today I took the dolphin tour by JPH charters. I will remember this magnificent experience for a very long time. The tour left on time from La Pirogue peer. We found a school of dolphins at the picturesque Tamarin Bay and beautiful mountains. The skipper brings you close to the dolphins and then you jump off the boat in snorkel gear which they provide. You swim above and alongside the dolphins which is simply magnificent. The charter provides a floating device which gave me confidence in case I get tired. It also leaves your body free to move and swim... the boat picks you up again when the dolphins "outswim" you. I was so glad to be on this boat... it had the greatest engine power of the boats around - one guide on the boat and one in the water... and somehow we were always in the best position. I was within 2 metres of the dolphins several times despite being a mediocre swimmer. I spoke to Kristelle on land a few days earlier and she arranged this tour for me - after hours. These people have a special touch and they are good at what they do!

This is one of the must do activities in Mauritius. The turbo jet is private to us (4 adults and 2 kids) with one captain and one guide. We set off at 7 am so that we can enjoy close encountering with dolphins while the water is not too crowd yet. We got many chances to dive and swim with dolphins, though it's too tired for us after 4-5 times.

It is NOT swim with the dolphins - it is hunt the dolphins!!!

They want you to have the imagination that the dolphins comes to you. They do NOT.

Imagination that there in the low season was ad least 14 speed boats, each carrying 14-20 pax. All the pax screaming and jumping in water, try to se the dolphins in a 2- 3 second moment.

The Speed boats in a big mix trying to get up in front of the escaping dolphins, other speed boats going back collect passengers on board again and major groups of pax hunting the dolphins, other can't find the right speed boat.

Some of the swimmers are excellent swimers with camera, other with swimwear, scarry to be in the washer, close to be hit of the hunting boats.

Don't do it, you will maximum se the fins of the scared dolphins try to escape this tourist trap. Engins, smell of gasoline, screaming turist is the picture I remember.

My wife and me did this wonderful dolphin snorkeling trip today starting at the Lux Le Morne. It was only the two of us and our excellent guides Dhiran and Ronald.
Within the first 40min we were in the water 4 times with a big swarm of dolphins gliding by majestetically.
We were the only ones in the water together with Ronald who kept us safe.
Dhiran always found the perfect spot to drop us off.
Finally a big „Thank you“ to Dhiran, who maneuvered the boat excellently and navigated us safely through big tidal waves and strong currents!

We are a family of four, children aged 17 and 8 . We booked this trip because the kids were keen to swim with dolphins. We we in a boat with one other family and a crew of 2. We went to see to look for dolphins , the crew went around until they found a spot where there were dolphin and not too many boats. Everyone had a chance to swim with the dolphins . We were worried about the 7 year old but one of the crew members jumped in with her and swam with her the entire time . The two hours is enough time.It was a really great experience and I would recommend it. A real once in a lifetime experience.

What a fantastic experience I had swimming with the dolphins! It truly was out of this world. From arriving to the point of destination the staff from JPH were more than welcoming.
A massive thank you to both Jeremy and Carl for adding to my experience and making the morning so enjoyable! A big shout out to Jeremy for being my camera man and capturing some amazing footage for me whilst swimming with the dolphins. Memories that I will have forever! Would highly recommend this trip and company to anyone visiting Mauritius. Just wish there was an option to upload videos as got some great footage!

Everything at JPH was very good organized. Only 2 couples on the boat. Karl and Kevin (captain and guide) were an excellent crew. Saw the dolphin several times and very closely. Perfect outside conditions. Afterwards breakfast in the same village.

The team at JPH were the best thing about about stay in Mauritius. We did a dolphin tour, catamaran ride and two snorkelling trips. The team were always friendly and the dolphin experience particularly was amazing. Can't recommend enough!

We had a very beautiful boattrip in the morning, starting just in front of the Lux. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, we were so happy about swimming with spinner & bottlenose dolphins, it was such a great experience! They guys knew a lot about the dolphins and explained important facts about them and their behaviour.
