Dolphin Encounter -2h Excursions - West Coast Mauritius
A unique experience: swimming near the dolphins in their natural environment.
Once you get on board of any of our boats, our skippers will do a briefing on the experience you are going to live.
The briefing will also include such aspects as:
Type of dolphins that you will encounter
Guidelines for Sustainable Dolphin watching
Security measures on our boats
Then you will be off for two wonderful hours in the open sea
Swim near the Dolphins + Lunch on L’ile aux Benitiers: 7.30 to 14.30
About 500 metres off the coast at La Gaulette (South West of Mauritius) is l'ile aux Bénitiers. It is a large coral sand island approximately two kilometres long and 500 metres at its widest point and 65 hectares in area. The island itself has very little biodiversity value since it has a highly modified vegetative cover and is used as a coconut plantation.
After the 2 hrs outing near the dolphins you will be going to L’ile aux Benitiers for lunch and stay up to the afternoon in a magnificent lagoon. You will go across the Crystal Rock and have a magnificent view on le Morne mountain. Our guys will start preparing the lunch as soon as you will be on the island and within an hour you will be eating a delicious menu. After lunch you will have the leisure to tan on the beach or else walk around the endless beach of the island.
