The 'swimming with wild dolphins' experience should not be advertised on this trip or even be in the title. What they fail to tell you in the 'what to expect' bit is that there is around 20 others boats in the sea doing the exact same excursion as you. It isn't as private as it's made out to be. It was absolute chaos on the boats. There's far to many out there doing the same thing and it spoils the experience as you don't really get to see much, as soon as the dolphins are spotted all the boats race to be the first one to the spot which then causes the dolphins to go under and swim away. It was like a giant game of hide and seek. We didn't get to swim with them like it's made out to be. The snorkelling is only for 15 minutes and again your surrounded by a lot of other boats. We booked this because it sounded like you was going to get an amazing private experience. The only bit that's private is the beach hopping. If it wasn't for the beach hopping this would have scored a 1 star.
Hi, thanks for your feedback. Please note that the tour is sold as a "shared" tour, and it is noted that the beach hopping portion of the tour is in a private taxi. We're sorry to hear about your experience swimming with the wild dolphins. At times, some boats are not as courteous as they should be, although the Mauritius Tourism Authority is trying to prevent this.
