Benitiers Island, or Île aux Benitiers as the locals call it, is a beautiful formation that looks a bit like a clamshell when approaching it from a distance. Bonjour Mauritius offers the opportunity to combine swimming with wild dolphins with a barbecue lunch, and an afternoon of swimming or relaxing on this island paradise. The Mauritius Swimming with Wild Dolphins & Lunch on Benitiers Island excursion is perfect for those who want to enjoy the beach and a barbecue lunch and drinks, after spending the morning swimming with wild dolphins.

Swimming With Wild Dolphins & Lunch on Benitiers Island
Get ready for the experience of a lifetime: swim with dolphins in their natural environment, snorkel in the crystal clear waters near the coral reef, and enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch on Benitiers Island.
The driver will pick you up in a private taxi, at your accommodation anywhere on the island, and bring you to the departure location, on the West coast of Mauritius.
Once you get on board the speedboat, the professional and qualified skippers will start by briefing you on the important aspects of this experience. You will then head to Tamarin Bay for the dolphin encounter. The skippers will accompany you in the water when it’s your turn to swim with the dolphins. You will enjoy about 2 hours on the open sea viewing the dolphins and swimming with them. Depending on the amount of time left, you will then go to The Aquarium, a popular snorkelling and diving site with beautiful coral and tropical fish.
After you swim with dolphins, you will head to Benitiers Island. You will go across the Crystal Rock and have a magnificent view of Le Morne mountain. Once on the island, the crew will start preparing a delicious barbecue lunch. Afterwards, you will have the leisure to tan, relax and enjoy the lagoon and island.
At the end of the day, the driver will bring you back to your accommodation.
