I WANT TO SWIM WITH DOLPHINS

The small fishing village of Kizimkazi has become Zanzibar’s home of dolphin tours. In Mauritius you can have the unique experience of swimming with dolphins in their natural surroundings. In Ponta Do Ouro in Southern Mozambique, a moment below the surface of the ocean will remain with you for a lifetime.

The South African coastline is an ideal place to indulge in dolphin-watching. These smiley marine mammals can be seen jumping out of the surf of both the Indian and Atlantic oceans. Plettenberg Bay, along the Garden Route, is a popular dolphin-watching destination. Travellers can watch and photograph bottlenose dolphins from the shore, on an organised boat tour or even in a sea kayak, allowing you to get much closer to these beautiful animals. Along the Western Cape's West Coast region, Lamberts Bay offers Dolphin spotting tours throughout the year.

Swimming with dolphins in South Africa is strictly illegal, enforced by the Marine Living Resources Act. Scientific studies suggest that the feeding and nursery habits of dolphins are disturbed when people swim with them. Unlike some operations that limit a swim with dolphins to pools or shallow water encounters, the operators we work with provide the unique opportunity to enter the dolphins’ natural environment and enjoy an encounter with the dolphins in open sea. There is an emphasis on education, research, conservation and sustainability.
