The sea is Adrien’s Dream speciality and some of our excursions are focused on dolphins. You could be interested by the following information.
Spinner dolphins and bottle nose dolphins are part of the marine life around Mauritius, especially right off the West coast. They are mentioned in many travel guides and this spot is now well known for welcoming people who pay a visit to these dolphins in the morning.
Spinner dolphins, also called “stenella longirostris”, measure up to 2 meters and weigh about 75 kgs, have a dark grey back and a pale grey belly. They live in pods of 25 to 100 individuals and feed with fishes and squids. Their feeding time starts at the end of the day. In the morning, spinner dolphins come back to the bays to rest and socialize. This is a moment of interaction with human beings, besides they often jump out of the water and spin, making little ones and their elders smile to start the day in a brilliant way!
Bottle nose dolphins, also called “tursiops aduncus”, are pale grey. They can measure up to 2,5 meters approximately, and can weigh up to 200 kgs. They do not live far from the coasts, in small groups. However they still get curious when boats show up in their environment and can get close to them.
