Take advantage of this 2 hr 30 boat trip to swim with dolphins in their natural environment!

Reunion Island is the perfect place to make your dream come true and swim with dolphins, which populate the island's waters throughout the year!

You will meet the crew and your guide in Saint-Gilles-les-Bains, your meeting point, and board the boat. You will then set sail in a small group, in search of the marine mammals that you will be able to observe in the open sea, in their natural habitat!

While you enjoy the breakfast served on board, the staff will explain the course of your excursion and the rules to be respected when encountering dolphins.

Before arriving at your diving spot, you will be able to admire the view of the island and its landforms from the boat. You will then equip yourself with mask, snorkel and fins to dive into the water, accompanied by your instructor. You will be able to try to get close to dolphins and observe other marine species.

After this magical experience, you will be taken back to the island, to the port of Saint-Gilles.
