Dolphin Swim and Bénitiers Island Day Trip with Lunch
Swim with wild dolphins off Mauritius on this life-affirming 8-hour trip! Traveling by speedboat, head for waters that dolphins are known to favor, and watch, swim or snorkel with these adorable, intelligent mammals in their natural habitat ? the open sea. Afterward, cruise to the gorgeous Bénitiers Island (L?Ile aux Bénitiers) for a scrumptious barbecue lunch on the beach, complete with alcoholic drinks and sodas. Then, lounge on the sand, swim or snorkel in the turquoise lagoons, visit clam-shaped Crystal Rock, or absorb the epic views over Le Morne Brabant Mountain.

Make your own way to the departure point at the Black River on the west coast to begin your tour. On arrival, hop onto your speedboat and listen to a safety briefing and details about the trip ahead from your skipper.

Then, waft past Mauritius? palm-packed shores and enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee and biscuit as you jet toward waters known for their resident dolphins. With luck, you?ll spot pods of these beautiful animals as they play and skim around the boat. Then, watch from deck or jump in to swim and snorkel with these playful, intelligent mammals in their natural habitat ? a life-affirming experience you?ll never forget!

After your dolphin encounter and around two hours on the boat, cruise to the island of Bénitiers (L?Ile aux Bénitiers) a paradise-like islet fringed by pale sand and shallow, turquoise lagoons. Here, enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch with complimentary soda, beer, rum, wine, fruit juice, water and coffee. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

Afterward, swim or snorkel around the lagoons and coral beds, and perhaps join your boat to visit Crystal Rock, a clam-shaped rock rising up from the sea. Alternatively, laze on the sand and ogle the views over Le Morne Brabant, the rugged mountain that dominates southwest Mauritius.

In the mid-afternoon, cruise back to the departure point, where your tour concludes, and make your own way back to your hotel.
