Dolphin Encounters in Mauritius

Dolphin Encounters in Mauritius

Fringed by white sand beaches and lapped by the warm waves of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius makes a prime destination for dolphin watching—indeed, it’s possible to spot the majestic creatures around the island year-round. Here are your options for seeing dolphins in their natural environment.

Dolphin Watching Cruises

Dolphin watching cruises run year-round, but the best time for sightings is between December and March. Hop aboard a catamaran or speed boat, and set sail along the west coast of Mauritius, where pods of spinner and bottlenose dolphins can be found around Benitiers Island, Tamarin Bay, and the Black River area. Tours can last anywhere from 2.5 hours to a full day, and some tours include hotel pickup and breakfast or lunch on board. 

 

Swimming and Snorkeling

Many day cruises offer the chance to snorkel around the coral reefs of Crystal Rock and Benitiers Island. It’s also possible to swim and snorkel around the dolphins, offering a rare chance to admire the beautiful creatures up close. Dolphin swims are always closely supervised by an experienced guide to ensure the natural environment is not disturbed, and touching or interacting with the dolphins is prohibited.
