Type of dolphins in Mauritius

We have two types of dolphins which have choose Tamarin Bay as home; Spinner and Bottle-nose. The spinner dolphins are the most common ones in Mauritius. They can be seen in groups of hundreds well as the Bottle-nose stays in less important groups.

Spinner dolphins are around 130 to 200 cm in length and weight around 45-75 kg. They are more interesting to watch because of their playful nature and stay at the surface of the sea more frequently than the Bottle-nose. The latter can reach 4 to 4 meters long and weight around 150 to 400 kg. These 2 species didn’t mix together.

Dolphin watching and dolphin swim in Mauritius

Our dolphins watch tour last for 2 hours. Those who want to swim with dolphin have to let our skippers know about it. Those guys will give you some special instructions before jumping with you into the sea for guidance. Please note that when we talk about swimming with dolphins, it won’t be really swimming side by side with them because they are too fast for human being. Our dolphins are not tamed ones in a marine park but wild ones out in nature. The idea is to be in the sea at the right moment, find yourself among the group, maybe even touching them or hearing them communicating with each others. Though they are wild creature, they are not aggressive and are used to human presence.
