Full Description
arrow_down

Treat yourself to a Half Day Private Catamaran Cruise to see Dolphins on the West Coast of Mauritius and enjoy a snorkelling session in the Indian Ocean.

Spend a relaxing time onboard admiring the spectacular coastal views on the West side. This trip is all about enjoying a tranquil and relaxing time away from work and your daily routine. With this private catamaran you can revel in good company as you cruise the idyllic Mauritian coast.

Dolphins are highly social animals, and in Mauritius they often live in pods of up to a dozen individuals. They can be observed swimming from the west coast of Mauritius, on their way to the deep sea off the coast of the Le Morne peninsula.

The catamaran will then stop in a key location, for you to enjoy an enriching snorkelling experience in the Indian Ocean. Enjoy exploring the rich diverse marine ecosystem in our crystal-clear waters. Don’t be surprised if you come across turtles and a range of colourful fish including angelfish, damselfish and clownfish, amongst others.

During your trip, you will also come across Crystal Rock, a well-known natural formation that can be seen off the South West Coast. It is a piece of coral reef, shaped like a diamond and with the le Morne Brabant in the backdrop it makes for some great photos.

For your convenience, this package also includes an optional lunch with all-inclusive drinks, against a supplement.

Additional Information about Dolphins in Mauritius

Dolphins are perhaps the most fantastic of all the creatures that live in the ocean. The dolphins, cheerful and playful, are a symbol of intelligence and grace.

In Mauritius, the dolphins live in pods of about 20 individuals or more and can be observed swimming from Tamarin Bay (on the west coast of Mauritius), on their way to the deep sea off the coast of the Le Morne peninsula.

The most common dolphins in Mauritius are the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin.

The Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin have chosen the West Coast of Mauritius their place for rest and sleep before heading for the deep sea for their fishing.

The Bottlenose Dolphin is one of the most common and well-known dolphins. Bottlenose Dolphins are grey in colour and measure between 2 to 4 meters (6.6 and 13 ft) long, and weigh between 150 and 650 kilograms (330 and 1,400 lb). Bottlenose Dolphins live in groups called pods that typically number about 15 dolphins, but group size varies from solitary bottlenose dolphins up to groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 dolphins. Their diet consists mainly of small fish.

The Spinner Dolphin is dark grey, with darker patches in the tailstock, back and throat. Usually it has creamy-white patch on the belly though this varies considerably. The beak is distinctively long and thin, with a dark tip. The fins too are lengthy for dolphins of this size. Adults vary in size from 120 cm to 235 cm and weight from 23 kg to 78 kg. Individuals reach maturity at 4-7 years (females) and 7-10 years (males). The Spinner Dolphins congregate in groups that vary from just a few dolphins to great schools numbering thousands.
