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.

Review of: Whale watching
We waiting for a few days for this trip and fortunately the weather cleared by the last day of our short 4 days trip where we went about an hour into deep sea and found one Sperm whale, later another, then 3 of them swimming together. It was truly an Amazing experience to see these magnificent animals in front of our eyes and to be able to swim close to 10 meters away from them. The team followed these whales and we could spot them come up to blow air around 6 to 7 times. We left only after we were all exhausted and completely satisfied with the sights we saw. :-)

We had a very good experience with Dolswim. We swam with dolphins and saw a group of 6 whales during the excursion. Dolswin respects the rules of swimming with dolphins, Unfortunately there are other organizations that do not follow the laws of whale watching and they disturb the peace of these beautiful animals by letting tourists swim

An amazing trip! Well looked after throughout even though there had to be some changes made due to water conditions. Staff were super friendly and really made us feel welcome.

It was an early start, but the tour was very well organised. Our guides were Sidney and Pascal and they were very good about keeping us informed. Initially we were supposed to try and see dolphins, but there was a mother and baby, so rather than distress them, they were proactive and we went off to try and spot whales instead. This was my favourite part, as we were lucky to see about 7 in total. Was an amazing experience, seeing these massive mammals up close. The guides were excellent in spotting the whales and we were first to see them on many occasions. Afterwards we went back to find dolphins and we did see some. Unfortunately it was busy with other boats and I don’t think people should be allowed to get in the water with the dolphins. Our guides were respectful to the dolphins, but It can still be a fabulous experience just to observe.

Review of: Whale watching
We were so lucky. Big game fisher spotted whales and waited til we arrived - after a short way (5km) we’ve been there and did see a group of 4 female whales with a baby. Later 3 more whales came up and joined the group. We’ve been given plenty of information on the whales and had quite a bit time to enjoy these moments. Then we left the whales and met a school of dolphins on our way back. We’re so lucky! Thanks to the crew of Dolswim!
