    Une journée incroyable. On a vu pleins de dauphins, il y avait plusieurs bateaux mais c est le jeu.... Le déjeuner sur l île du Bénitier un très bon souvenir, mais le temps de pause un peu trop long. Et les skipper très sympa

    An amazing day out from start to finish. Picked up by the lovely Dhiren to take us to the south (considerately stopping for coffee enroute) for one of the best days ever! The boat took us out to where the dolphins would be & the crew briefed us on when to jump in and what to do. Owen and Nino were the best guides and out of 3 jumps swam with dolphins all around twice. Hard work to swim and keep up but worth it. Then headed to benitiere island for bbq lunch. Great food and relaxing island. All in all an amazing day thank you

    La croisière m'a déçu au plus haut point !! (piège à tourisme) J'ai assisté, et pas de gaité de cœur à des comportements irresponsables !! les "pilotes" de bateaux arrivant à toute vitesse sur le site en faisant des cercles dans l'eau. Le but, faire peur aux dauphins pour qu'ils s'enfuient et fassent des bons hors de l'eau et cela toute la journée multiplié par une vingtaine de bateaux !! A aucun moment je n'ai vu les dauphins s'amuser de la situation, à aucun moment je n'ai vu les dauphins venir nager autour des bateaux !! Donner 67 roupies pour assister à cette parodie aquatique m'a fendu le cœur !! Le plus extraordinaire, c'est que je suis allée à l'agence qui m'avait vendue les billets, quand je lui ai dit ce à quoi j'avais assisté elle m'a répondu que c'était strictement interdit, que plusieurs personnes lui avait déjà fait remonter l'information et que les autorités condamnées cette pratique !!

    Fantastic trip from start to finish, very organised and we had so much fun! Crazy to see and swim with all those dolphins! We were really lucky! We will do it again when we’re back in February next year! Thank you all so much!

    Had an amazing experience saw and swam with the dolphins. You had to be quick jumping in the sea but it was well worth it. The skipper was brilliant. The taxi picked us up promptly on other side of the island about an hour away. We then got into the boat about 8 of us so it was perfect. Snorkelled around the crystal rock and then had a fab lunch and creole dancing and singing and lots of rum beer and non alcoholic drinks. I totally recommend this company from start to finish. Book up you will not regret it.

    È stata un’esperienza unica ed indimenticabile nuotare così vicino ai delfini! Poi in sè la continuazione della giornata è stata molto bella. L’isola dove si pranza è molto selvaggia e paradisiaca! L’autista che ci è venuto a prendere in hotel è stato super gentile e ci ha spiegato tutta la storia dell’isola! Sicuramente quando ritorneremo alle Mauritius rifaremo questa escursione!

    We werden in de ochtend netjes op tijd opgehaald door een hele vriendelijke man, dus we kwamen ruim op tijd aan. We zijn toen met een speedboot naar de dolfijnen gevaren, we hebben er super veel gezien. Daarna gingen we met de boot naar een ander plaatsje om te snorkelen, heel mooi koraal gezien met veel verschillende visjes. Daarna hebben we een heerlijke BBQ gehad op een heerlijk eilandje. Meer dan genoeg eten en drinken! Als tip of wat beter kon was de uitleg over de dolfijnen, dit was er niet behalve dat er grote en kleine dolfijnen zijn. En moesten zelf vragen of we mochten zwemmen bij de dolfijnen. De kapitein was niet heel enthousiast. Verder TOP dag gehad!

    I went on a dolphin watching cruise with EcoHolidays Mauritius and had an amazing time. I booked the trip through the trip advisor app three days before. Our boat driver was incredible and positioned the boat in the perfect place for us to get in the water as the dolphins swim past. After spending a few hours with the dolphins we then set off to see crystal rock to take some photographs. We spent lunchtime and early afternoon sitting on the beach of a small island and had a bbq which was also fantastic. I would highly recommend booking your dolphin experience with EcoHolidays Mauritius, it was a great experience.

    What a fantastic company we went out on this trip swimming with the dolphins and were lucky to spot humpback whales as well . Great trip started with Ravi our driver picking us up at hotel . He makes the start of the trip such a friendly guy . The 2 boys on the boat made the trip, very good at there job and friendly . Great barbecue on Benitiers island prepared by the two boys also . Everything was well organised and made our holiday . A must on any Mauritius holiday . John was one on the boat and can’t remember the other but made the boat trip a great success
