Sunrise Dolphin Encounter

Swim with wild dolphins, snorkelling session and visit of the Crystal Rock…

Life is about collecting experiences that take your breath away. This is one of them…

Each morning on the west coast of Mauritius, we meet wild dolphins who approach the coast to socialize, relax and play. It is home to two species of dolphins: bottlenose dolphins and spinner dolphins. We usually see either, except if you are very lucky and meet both species, which happens sometimes!


We love these marine creatures and our purpose is to lead our guests through this life experience; passion and respect are our priorities. The crew will start the excursion with their briefing and give you details on: safety, respectful dolphin interaction, trip schedule, etc…

We encourage an early start for a peaceful and respectful interaction with the dolphins : 6:15 during the winter season 5:30 during the summer season. We watch and swim with them for about 60mins to 90mins. Then we sail to our favourite snorkeling in the natural aquarium to see tropical marine life: clams, fish, sea stars, corals… The last stop on the trip will be the world-famous Crystal Rock in the White Lagoon. A fragile corallian formation in the middle of crystalline water.


The departure arrival is from our office at L’Estuaire in Black River (refer to location point).

To ensure your comfort, all snorkelling equipment will be provided on board, and homemade banana bread will be served in the morning.


Pssst… Stay calm positive, the dolphins can feel your energy as they have cerebral emotional ratios very close to us, humans!


➞ Please note that the number of dolphins on site and the behavior of the animals change on a day-to-day basis. We don’t control those two things because they’re wild and they can’t predict encounters beforehand. Our team adjusts and makes every effort to offer a memorable interaction.


Add your personal underwater photos and videos with dolphins, taken by our photography guides using the latest GoPro cameras. Please note that the final outcome of the photos and videos will be subject to the interaction with the dolphin, your swimming skills, and the overall sea conditions. Once reviewed and approved, all files will be provided to you on an SD card at the end of the trip or sent via WeTransfer.


Maximum Capacity per boat is 8 people. You can reserve the boat (price remains the same for up to 4 guests) and specify any additional people to each boat.
