Le Maranatha - Dolphin watching

Dolphin Watching and Snorkeling activity.

Dolphin watching is an activity that can be done all the year round as we have the priviledge of having a nice population of dolphin staying along our coast.  The most common species are the spinner and the bottle nose.

This is an activity of 3 to 4 hours duration starting normally between 7 and 8 O’clock in the morning.

Dolphins can be seen along the western coast few meters after the barrier of Coral.

From Le Morne to the bay of Tamarin. 

After swimming with the dolphins, we will take you to one of the various snorkeling spots of the region where you will be able to admire the beautiful tropical fish.

We have a 90% chance of seeing dolphins. Snorkeling equipments, soft drinks and water are available on board. Above all do not forget your camera to be able to immortalise this moment.
