Great trip and the two guys running it knew their stuff. Good safety brief and felt happy that kids etc well looked after. They ensured everyone got to swim with the dolphins and did so with respect to the wildlife. We went on afterwards to the island for lunch: I wouldn't do so again. Food was great, but very hot,...

My family and I (5 persons) went on Blue Quest on 14.04 for a day of Dolphin and Whale watching. What can I say....it was one of the most amazing experiences ever!!!! We not only viewed many Spinner dolphins (incl. babies) on 2 occasions but 2 different pods of sperm whales, one of them included 13 animals, yes 13!!!!!! The... More

We were connected to to Dolswim when we booked a Dolphin swimming and Whale watching excursion through Viator. We have generally used Viator for exploring attractions when we travel and have had good experiences. This one was equally good. Though the website warned us the chances of being able to see sperm whales was only around 60% on a good... More

Staying in the North of Mauritius we had to get up early to be there at 7, but it was worth the trip. The crew was friendly and guided us well to swim with the dolphins. The snorkeling later on was more peaceful but also great after the somewhat crowded dolphin area.

We took the dolphin swimming tour with DolSwim at 07.00 am. The trip started off with breakfast at the hut, good croissants and coffee. Then we went on the speed boat. The skippers Kevin and Fabrice were amazing and very informative. We had the impression that they were very conscious of the environment and their main concern was how to... More

We booked a combined big game fishing and snorkelling day and we're not disappointed! Kevin and Fabrice (our crew for the day) did everything they could to get us onto the fish however none of the boats caught anything today. That's just the way fishing goes, otherwise it would be called catching! One black marlin did have a go at... More

Booked the dolphin swim Tour. Day started at 0700 with a nice little breakfast. Great croissants! Straight to the dolphin, which they found quickly. Very calm and controlled Tour, compared to some of the other boats. 2 persons at a time, swimming with one of the guides. Got really close twice, nice. Short stop on the way back for snorkling....

I recently went with Dolswim as part of an excursion on holiday. On arrival there was coffee available while you changed and then we were taken out on a power boat to where the dolphins were that day. The two lads who took us out were very knowledgeable about dolphins and gave us a quick safety brief once we were... More

I'm not sure why there are such negative reviews. We arrived early (which you are supposed to do as it is the best time to see the dolphins). Breakfast was all laid out - tea,coffee,orange juice and croissants. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. We had a group of 14 of us including children and a... More
