What to expect
Roll out of bed and enjoy convenient early morning pickup at your hotel in the morning. Transfer to the seaside, where you'll board a boat bound for the dolphin habitat. Please note, this portion of the tour is with other participants. Watch the scenery drift by on the way, then get an orientation from the skipper on what to expect from dolphins. Learn how to behave in the water as not to disturb the dolphins in their natural environment. Spend the next few hours swimming around the dolphins and viewing them from the deck of the boat. If time allows, continue to a nearby popular snorkeling spot called The Aquarium.  Back on land, you are back on your own with your guide as you head to Macondé, arguably the island's best viewpoint. Take in the sights and snap photos before heading to La Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes, home to 1,000 giant tortoises and 2,000 Nile crocodiles. Peruse the more than 23,000 species of insects in the insectarium.  In the wild south of Mauritius, take the in the rugged scenery and the powerful waves at Gris Gris, where you can see the rock formation known as the La Roche Que Pleure. The tour concludes back at your hotel.
