booked for the L'amistad experience and to get it right out there, we did not get to swim with the dolphins which was the main purpose for the excursion to no fault of anyone but conditions though it sort of foretold our experience aboard the L'Amistad. It was a disappointment, quite possibly because we are not french speakers. During the whole experience we were divided into 2 groups the french speakers and "the others" and as usually happens you don't want to be on "the others" to whom attention is an after thought.

There were 8 of us, so unbeknown to us, the l'amistad was left anchored elsewhere and we were all bundled into a speedboat for the same trip. It is June, the start of the Mauritian winter, and we understand that it might be rougher on the sea and you can never guarantee to see Dolphins. We spent nearly two hours searching for them, the two guides did their best but it wasn't to be. It would have been too rough to swim with them anyway. One of our party had back problems so a speedboat was not her choice of boat! There was no canopy ( I didn't want to get burnt on my first trip) no breakfast or diving for sea urchins, no captain that others reviews speak so highly of, no music to dance to on way back.... You get the picture....It was none of our choice of boat.We had all paid for the trip on L'amistad! I am certain that the trip on l'amistad is a marvellous experience as all the other reviews say it is.....unfortunately for the same money we were not afforded the same experience because there was Less of us without our knowing about it. We were given full refunds but that was only after one of our party became really angry on the phone with the organiser!! Thanks to her. However we were all excited as this trip has such rave reviews...before booking just CHECK THAT THERE ARE ENOUGH OF YOU BOOKED so they don't try to fob you off with a different boat!.... Very sad about it as I had really looked forward to the trip. I did however experience the advertised trip & saw Dolphins on another day with a different company!

Monsieur, Vous avez été placé sur le bateau que nous utilisons l’hiver car la veille nous avons eu un sabotage sur le bateau qui nous a obligé le matin même a prévoir de vous mettre au dernier moment sur le speed boat. Tout ceci vous a été expliqué par mail et vous avez tous été remboursé de votre journée et même bien au delà. Je ne comprends pas votre mécontentement si ce n’est uniquement dans le but de faire du mal. Le bateau est réparé depuis, mais sachez que l’Amistad (le bateau) n’est pas le seul bateau de notre flotte et que nos avis ne sont pas uniquement basé sur ce bateau. Il aurait peut être fallu dire que vous teniez a être sur celui-ci au départ nous vous aurions reporté à un autre jour après réparation. Cordialement

We stayed a couple of Days in La Gaulette and booked the trip with the L'Amistad spontaneously after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We did the Dolphin swim trip with them and it has been an incredible experience. We dived for sea urchins and they prepared them on the boat so we could taste them. With a bit of Jungle Juice (Rum+Juice) and a nice sip of Phoenix Beer we ended the day with a lesson of Sega dancing on the boat himself.
