Swimming with wild dolphins is one of the must-do Mauritius excursions. Spinner dolphins are found off of the coat of Mauritius throughout the year. While it's possible to swim with these magnificent creatures as part of a shared excursion, there are many benefits to opting for a private experience. If you're part of a larger group, or are looking for a more intimate experience, a private wild dolphin swim may be for you.
