Dolphin Bay on Mauritius is one of the world's premiere dolphin watching spots. Not only can you watch from a boat, but you can swim in the sea, snorkel, and swim with the dolphins. Dolphins go to the shallow sea of the lagoon for food almost every day. Visitors can take a catamaran or speed boat to watch dolphins. The catamaran moves about slowly, so is more suitable for people who prefer a slow pace, perhaps middle-aged and elderly people. The speedboat is more suitable for young people who enjoy stimulation. It is faster and smaller, and can maneuver closer to the dolphins, which when accompanied by waves, makes for a stimulating and unforgettable dolphin pursuit experience.

Chasing dolphins in Dolphin Bay is one of the biggest highlights of the trip to Mauritius. Dolphin Bay is one of the best dolphins in the world. Not only is the sea clear, but the dolphins are waiting for you there! The dolphins go to the shallow sea for food almost every day and return to the deep sea at around 10 am, so it is early, about 8 or 9 in the morning.
Because we have a large number of people, we are sitting on a catamaran.
The advantage is obvious: the high-end atmosphere on the grade
disadvantage is that there is no way to chase the beach.
If you choose a speedboat, you can jump directly to the sea and see the dolphins.
It takes less than 5 minutes to get to the beach and you can see the beach!
They swim in groups of teams, and from time to time they will see the surface of the water panting, the back with a gorgeous reflection, and then quickly dive into the water, moving forward at a fairly fast speed.
If you are lucky, you can also see the naughty little dolphins jumping high over the water, so don't exclaim the dolphin performance in the aquarium. These movements are natural.
A group of beaches swim around the boat, feeling like they are playing us.
Mauritius has a high probability of seeing dolphins, but dolphins generally do not appear in very close seas. Sometimes ships can be seen for 20 minutes, sometimes for 2 hours. Our luck is better. After about 40 minutes of departure, we saw the first dolphins, and everyone on the boat cheered!
Even happier, we soon saw the long-nosed dolphins jumping out of the sea. They naturally liked to dive and play. When they meet, they will flock around the ships in groups. They are also very close to humans, and the speedboats are unfolding. In the fierce competition, the moment when the little dolphins jumped out of the water, there were countless rings, and the tourists jumped down and jumped into the water to swim with the dolphins. At this time, they would swim at 70 kilometers per hour. The side disappeared completely, and then there will suddenly be a friendly greeting to you~
The deep sea near Mount Mona on the West Coast is their gathering place, and Mount Mona is a beautiful and full of stories: Mauritius Before the abolition of slavery, it was the hiding place of the fugitive slaves. When slavery was abolished, the slaves escaped and misunderstood the police, and they jumped into the cliff to commit suicide. From that day on, Mauritius set the annual February 1 as Slave Liberation Day.
In 2003, Mauritius began applying for World Heritage to UNESCO for Mona Mountain. It was officially approved in 2008. The Mona Mountain story reminds me of the classic line of "Brave Heart": Freedom! Perhaps this is exactly what the ancestors of that year have pursued!
Dolphin Bay in Mauritius can see dolphins every day. We arrived at the must-see of the Dolphin Parade. I was shocked. I have never seen so many speedboats waiting in the sea, like a movie blockbuster. This activity is obviously more popular among European and American tourists. Only when they are lightly loaded, they are ready to leap into the sea and dance with dolphins. After a while, the dolphins appeared! The foreigners on the speedboat jumped into the water and danced with the dolphins. Don't look at the few dolphins on the water. It's just a few dolphins that come out to breathe. There are at least dozens of underwater!
Because the place where I live is closer to Dolphin Bay, I can go out at seven o'clock, and if it is estimated to go out at six o'clock in other places. So I am glad to choose the place to live.
Mauritius is a place where you can watch dolphins all year round, so you have to go to the sea to see dolphins and choose to go to Mauritius. The dolphins here really come together.
You can also see Mount Mona in Dolphin Bay. I have always felt that Mount Mona is very beautiful, and it is like a blue sky and white clouds and blue sea. It is like a famous painting.
But when I learned about the story of Mona Mountain, I was deeply moved, and I saw the beauty of Mount Mona in the distance. Legend has it that in the early 19th century, a group of slaves fled to the peninsula to escape from the top of the mountain to ensure their freedom. It is said that before the group of slaves began to flee, they did not know that slavery had been abolished and became very alarmed when they saw a group of soldiers marching towards the cliff. They firmly believed that the soldiers appeared to catch them back, so a large number of slaves jumped from the cliff and died. The rock is named after it, and the meaning of Mona is "sad."
