Why We Highly Recommend DolSwim

Whether a nature enthusiast or family looking for a unique tour, friends in need of an adventure or a couple looking for an intimate experience DolSwim's excursions are sure to exceed your expectations. The allure of swimming with dolphins and whale watching is certainly a big draw, but there are many features that set DolSwim as the go-to guide for these adventures in Mauritius.

To start, the emphasis on responsible touring does not go unnoticed. DolSwim keeps their groups small, opting to send out more than one boat if need be. This ensures guests get a better view, and that the dolphins and whales do not get stressed out. During the dolphin swim they only allow two guests at a time in the water. Again, ensuring a better experience for both visitors and mammals alike. They follow the recommended international guidelines developed by marine biologists to ensure the mammal's experience is as great as your own.

The team at DolSwim is highly trained and continues to take courses and gain certifications every year. They are taught by marine biologists. This means that they are up to date on the best ways to interact with the sea life and they are well educated on each species lifestyle. Their hospitality and ability to balance academics with fun are a big part of the signature experience DolSwim delivers.

Safety extends well beyond life jackets. The team explains the dos and don'ts, the boats are meticulously maintained, and with more than one going out at a time even if the engine were to break you won't be left stranded. Safety hasn't been overlooked for the dolphins and whales either. Propellor guards are one example of the safety features for the mammals.
