Swimming with wild Dolphins
Swimming with wild dolphins does not have to remain a fantasy for you… Come with us and meet these magical beings face to face on their terms… In the Big Blue
Halo Gaia Holistic Travel offers regular dolphin-swim and dolphin educational retreats to Southern Mozambique where approximately 250 Inshore Bottle-nose dolphins are resident to the area. Our communion with these dolphins over the past 14 years has produced some extraordinary wonders. The encounters are often up close and very personal, with eye to eye communication and intimate twirling dances…If you have always imagined THIS for yourself, now is the perfect time to explore the world of the dolphin with us!
All our retreats are child friendly and we offer regular family getaways, including a wonderful program for both children and parents. Activities would include beach games, facilitated music and drum circles, story telling around the fire at night, guided walks into the nearby village and fresh water lake and much more!
Run to international standards, we ensure non-invasive interaction with the dolphins. Our Code of Conduct include among other, ‘a no touch rule’, ‘one boat policy’ and carefully reading the dolphin behaviors before dropping participants in the water. The dolphins have never been in captivity, have never been fed, chased or lured. This is their world and it is the dolphins that ultimately initiate the swims. If they show avoidance behavior, we do not force the swims and remain the observers from the boat. All our packages include a snorkeling course in the dive pool, a full code-of-conduct-dolphin-behavior presentation and safety debriefing.
Rates vary between R3100 - R4000 per person for a 3 or 4 night getaway, depending on the package that you book.
