Wonderful (if exhausting) experience
Nov 2021
We did this trip today and had an amazing time! Michael and Mervin were brilliant! We had about six or seven swims with the spinner dolphins and even saw bottlenose as well. Only six of us on the boat, so it was a much more personalised experience than some of the larger boats we saw. Highly recommended, and such good value. Very tiring though!

Don't do it!! Tourist trap.
It is NOT swim with the dolphins - it is hunt the dolphins!!!

They want you to have the imagination that the dolphins comes to you. They do NOT.

Imagination that there in the low season was ad least 14 speed boats, each carrying 14-20 pax. All the pax screaming and jumping in water, try to se the dolphins in a 2- 3 second moment.

The Speed boats in a big mix trying to get up in front of the escaping dolphins, other speed boats going back collect passengers on board again and major groups of pax hunting the dolphins, other can't find the right speed boat.

Some of the swimmers are excellent swimers with camera, other with swimwear, scarry to be in the washer, close to be hit of the hunting boats.

Don't do it, you will maximum se the fins of the scared dolphins try to escape this tourist trap. Engins, smell of gasoline, screaming turist is the picture I remember.

The team at JPH were the best thing about about stay in Mauritius. We did a dolphin tour, catamaran ride and two snorkelling trips. The team were always friendly and the dolphin experience particularly was amazing. Can't recommend enough!

Beyond my imagination
Oct 2021 • Solo
Today I took the dolphin tour by JPH charters. I will remember this magnificent experience for a very long time. The tour left on time from La Pirogue peer. We found a school of dolphins at the picturesque Tamarin Bay and beautiful mountains. The skipper brings you close to the dolphins and then you jump off the boat in snorkel gear which they provide. You swim above and alongside the dolphins which is simply magnificent. The charter provides a floating device which gave me confidence in case I get tired. It also leaves your body free to move and swim... the boat picks you up again when the dolphins "outswim" you. I was so glad to be on this boat... it had the greatest engine power of the boats around - one guide on the boat and one in the water... and somehow we were always in the best position. I was within 2 metres of the dolphins several times despite being a mediocre swimmer. I spoke to Kristelle on land a few days earlier and she arranged this tour for me - after hours. These people have a special touch and they are good at what they do!

Very special experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
Everything at JPH was very good organized. Only 2 couples on the boat. Karl and Kevin (captain and guide) were an excellent crew. Saw the dolphin several times and very closely. Perfect outside conditions. Afterwards breakfast in the same village.

Once in a lifetime experience
Jan 2020 • Family
We are a family of four, children aged 17 and 8 . We booked this trip because the kids were keen to swim with dolphins. We we in a boat with one other family and a crew of 2. We went to see to look for dolphins , the crew went around until they found a spot where there were dolphin and not too many boats. Everyone had a chance to swim with the dolphins . We were worried about the 7 year old but one of the crew members jumped in with her and swam with her the entire time . The two hours is enough time.It was a really great experience and I would recommend it. A real once in a lifetime experience.

Amazing experience with dolphin
Dec 2019
This is one of the must do activities in Mauritius. The turbo jet is private to us (4 adults and 2 kids) with one captain and one guide. We set off at 7 am so that we can enjoy close encountering with dolphins while the water is not too crowd yet. We got many chances to dive and swim with dolphins, though it's too tired for us after 4-5 times.

Lovely encounter with dolphins
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had a lovely excursion. After a problem with our car we were running late and JPH were understanding and willing to wait for us.
Our guide was extremely good and we thought they were respectful and careful with the dolphins, which was not the case fod every boat that day. We did see 10 dolphins but it all goes super quick..great experience.

Dolphin Excursion
Oct 2019
While saying at Lux Le Morne resort, for our honeymoon, we decided to stroll over to the water sports tent, and see what they had to offer. The dolphin excursion immediately jumped out to my wife but I was a little reluctant to say yes. We talked for a bit but then decided to choose this excursion - up to the point of departure, the next morning, I was still a little skeptical in choosing this trip. Boy was I wrong!!

It's about a 30-40 min ride out to the cove where the dolphins are and it's beautiful the entire way. Once you get to the cove it is a bit hectic, with all of the other boats, but JPH's guides were super helpful and experienced. We were able to see a ton of dolphins thanks to them and the swimming assistant held our GoPro for us so we could get in on all of the action, without missing a beat!

We would highly recommend JPH Charters to everyone. The dolphin tour was so interesting and fun - while it is a bit touristy, it is totally worth the trip!! We enjoyed it very much and would love to do it again :(
