We went out early this morning with Vic and Ludovic. We went early at 6am which was great as there weren’t too many boats out on the water. We saw many bottle nose and spinner dolphins and then went in search of sperm whales. The guys were amazing at communicating with other boats and using the sonar to find the whales. We were so lucky to see around 8 sperm whales and while we had a great view Vic and Ludovic really respected the animals in their environment, which was very important to us. It is simply breathtaking seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural setting. The highlight for us was on the way back being surrounded by about 60 dolphins who swam right next to and in front of our boat. It seemed like they were playing with us and really enjoying themselves - it was fabulous. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and Vic and Ludovic were professional and knowledgeable and the boat was really well maintained and clean. They also played some pretty awesome tunes during the trip! Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed my trip with Captain Vic, he even picked me up by boat in front of my hotel at La Preneuse from his usual location at Flic en Flac, which was over 9km away! You do not hear of this level of service with boat operators!

We then watched dolphins swim at Tamarin for a while, which was a beautiful experience then we sped off to the open seas where we had to track the whales.

He really was dedicated to finding the best whale watching spots and detecting the whales themselves with his equipment. The effort paid off and we managed to find amazing pilot whales which was a beautiful experience!

I then filmed with my drone but it accidentally went into the sea, Captain Vic swiftly jumped into the water to save the drone and bring it back! I actually thought I would lose this drone but he managed to save it, which I did not expect at all! The drone is still drying at the time of writing but we washed it with fresh water to clean off the sea water.

He really went above and beyond for this trip. I will book my next trip again with him to hopefully see sperm or humpback whales in the open seas or simply go fishing.

If you want a super service by a pro who has been in the seas for over 20 years, then I highly recommend Captain Vic from Whale Dream. I know I will book a few trips to film my whale watching experience with him once my drone is up and running again. The price is absolutely worth this world-class service.

We had an amazing experience and was 100% to our expectations, Vic & Ludwig were very knowledgeable about marine life and for Covid safety we had the boat to ourselves which was very responsible and reassuring. Seeing spinner dolphins 2ft away from you was amazing, seeing sperm whales with calves 10ft away was a once in a lifetime opportunity that ticked all the boxes for us, what a wedding present that was. Vic & Ludwig were ensuring we had the best trip ever whilst monitoring the weather so we got back before the storm hit. 100% , we will be booking again next time for sure !!

We (me, my wife and daughters 17 & 18 yr) went out today (23 rd Oct 2021) and it has been one of the best experiences we have had. We saw a really big pod of dolphins and spent about 30 minutes with them. The crew were respectful of the dolphins and the dolphins swam around our boat and jumped out of the water. We then went to search for whales. The boat was powerful, comfortable and captained safely. We were taken far out and north and south to search and Ludvig's persistence finally paid off. We saw the most beautiful sperm whale. The crew knew what they were doing so we got 3 or 4 viewings as it came up and then dived down.

Victor has been brilliant, good communication with us and our taxi driver, on time, trustworthy and reliable. If we could rate the whole experience more than 5 we would. I didn't get my camera out when we saw the whale but I did for the dolphins.

The good experience already started with a super friendly and quick replying contact via WhatsApp for the booking and questions.
Then Vic and Ludwig welcomed us warmly at the boat which was also easy to find, clean and in good condition!
Although we do understand it’s nature and there is always the chance that you might not see any dolphins or whales. Lucky us, we got the chance to see a lot of different pods of spinner and bottlenose dolphins and could swim with them. And also for the sperm whales we were lucky to see a few groups. Absolutely amazing. Victor and Ludwig gave their very best to make this happen by using their knowledge, network and equipment and sharp eyes :) While always staying respectful towards the inhabitants of the sea, keeping the distance and not chasing.
Very trustworthy and professional all around.

We had an amazing experience with Whale Dream. I contacted Captain Vic through the official site and he was very quick to respond. Communication was great and Captain Vic was very flexible in finding a time that worked as we were leaving in a few days.

The boat ride out to the whales was a bit bumpy because of the choppy water (that's just the sea, can't be helped) but we really enjoyed having a Rolling stones soundtrack on the trip out. The experience of seeing the whales was just amazing. We got a great view and the whole thing felt very respectful of these beautiful creatures. Captain Vic spoke to us about his experiences and gave us loads of interesting information.

Thank you Captain Vic and Ludovic for the experience!

If you are fortunate enough to be able to visit Mauritius - by all means consider a whale watching trip with Captain Victor and Whale Dream Mauritius. He and his crew also operate Golden Wave which is one of the most successful sport fishing operations in Mauritius... To be a top notch sport fisher you need to be able to read the water and conditions. You have to know what activity to look for and when to look for it. That same talent lends itself to successful whale watching. The day promises to be a fantastic time, and I can assure you that it will be one of the highlights of your time in Mauritius... I can't stress enough the value in planning a trip with Victor and his crew. A whale watch venture is only as good as the boat captain and crew you are going out with. Do yourself a favor - especially if you have traveled far to see some of the unique species found in this part of the Indian Ocean... Book your trip with the best captain and crew Whale Dream Mauritius you won't be disappointed

We arranged a last minute private tour. Vic was amazing, came back to us right away on what’s app and explained what the morning would involve. He is clearly someone who wants to be in tune with nature as he made sure we went at a time when there was no other boats around and we were able to interact with the dolphins in a natural way. He made sure we had the best position to jump in and see them and the whole experience was amazing! Next time we are in Mauritius we will be back. So much better than previous experiences. Vic was amazing!!! Thank you

We had an amazing morning with Captain Vic and his crew yesterday, on the 4 hour private whale watching trip. The trip first took us to Tamarin Bay where we saw spinner dolphins, then further out where bottlenose dolphins rode our bow wave for a while. Captain Vic then took us out into deep water where we encountered a pod of pilot whales before the highlight of the trip, sperm whales! After using the hydrophone to locate the whales, we were fortunate to view a mother and her calf close to the boat, and a large male sperm whale before it finally arched it's back, lifted it's fluke and disappeared into the depths of the Indian Ocean! Wonderful! The fast boat ride back to shore was an adrenaline thrill to complete the morning!

Amazing morning with Captain Vic and Ludovic! We sailed really early to be the first visiting the dolphins at the bay and we could swim with them in a peaceful way. Then we sailed far from the coast and with the hydrophone Captain Vic quickly found many sperm whales and pilot whales. We enjoyed them for very long until we sailed back. This was a very special day, the price is high but it’s worth it.
