Overview

Mauritius is more than an island of white sandy beaches surrounded by turquoise water. It has a rich and breathtaking marine fauna and flora. Our goal is to unveil you the secrets of this colorful island and to help you realizing your dreams. Swimming with dolphins: a dream of many people. Dolswim gives you the opportunity to swim with these magnificent creatures in their natural environment. Our professional team will take you every morning to an unforgettable dolphin encounter. You will even have the opportunity to swim with them. Of course we will give you some regulations to respect these marine mammals and their environment. A second excursion: whale wathching: sperm whales, pilot whales, humpback whales ... some species you can see during our excursion. And top of the cake: don't miss our Blue Quest excursion. On board of a large boat you will discover the marine fauna of our island. Different types of dolphins, whales, pailles en queue, the typical birds of Mauritius, sea turtles, flying fishes and don't forget the beautiful coral reef ... our crew will try to show you as many marine mamals and other as possible and explain you everything about the rich marine fauna. A breakfast, fresh snacks and a delicious BBQ will make your day unforgettable. If you prefer a relaxing day, we propose, after swimming with the dolphins, a BBQ and a farniente on Benitier Island. And for the fans of fishing, we organize Big Game fishing outings, shared or in exclusivity: dorado, marlin, ... wishing you a good outing!
