The Whale Watching Experience in Mauritius

A unique experience of watching whales in their natural surroundings including a snorkelling break near the reef - all this done on a speed boat!

Encountering whales is an incredible experience - watch these remarkable mammals in the open sea as they swim beside the boat. With some luck, you may also see the whales jump out of the water or splash you with their huge tale, offering unique once-in-a-lifetime memories and picture-perfect moments.

What to Expect?

What to expect during the 2.5 Hrs Whale Watching

  • Before setting out to the deep sea, you will board a speed boat and the skipper will brief you on the experience you are about to have.
  • When you see the whales, the sight is unbelievable. Everyone has their own way of describing this incredible sight. Sometimes instead of the usual outbursts, it is the deafening silence of being lost for words as you hear the enormous humpback whale take one last breath before a dive.
  • To top up your experience, on your way back, enjoy a wonderful snorkelling break near the reef to explore the colourful marine life.
  • Private Option: Upon request, we also offer this whales’ trip on an exclusive-private basis for you to enjoy a trip in your own private boat for the day.
