Dolphins are a big part of exploring the magic in Mauritius. One can either take a cruise ride or take a swim off the coast of the Black River District to see these friendly water mammals up close. After some general prepping about the different varieties and some safety measures and instructions, you can hop onto a motorboat from Grande-Riviera-Noire to where the dolphins return after hunting in the sea. To be able to swim with them is one unique experience indeed.
