All about the Whales and Dolphins Watching.

The whales – so enormous, so mysterious and so astounding, can be observed on the west coast of Mauritius. The Humpback whales can be observed between July and November when they move from poles to warmer sea near the equator to reproduce, give birth, and breed before getting back to the artic. The Sperm Whale can be observed almost all year round. Moreover, we have dolphins. Dolphins are known as one of Earth’s most intelligent animals. Dolphins are highly social animals, often living in pods of up to a dozen individuals. We are really lucky to have wild dolphins such as the Spinner & Bottlenose, roaming freely in our blue turquoise lagoon.
