Dolphin swims are hugely popular
in Africa. Experience the thrill
of swimming alongside these amazing
animals in clear blue seas.
Swimming with dolphins is something every traveller should experience. These beautiful creatures are said to have healing properties, and swimming close with dolphins has been known to help people with disorders such as autism.

Best Dolphin Swim in Africa

The best place in Africa to swim with dolphins is undeniably Mozambique. This beautiful tropical paradise is home to some of the word’s best dive spots, with endless white beaches and clear blue waters. Ponta D'Ouro is the most popular spot for dolphin swims, as this is where hundreds of curious bottlenose dolphins.

Dolphin Cruise Operators

Registered dolphin cruise operators will be able to give visitors the best experience, as well as ensure the safety of the dolphins to avoid harassment or interference. Most dolphin swim encounters require adventurers to be good swimmers, but other than that no special diving certificate or equipment is needed other than a snorkel.

While dolphins are extremely playful and friendly, visitors should always remember to be gentle and not interfere with the animals too much, to ensure the best experience for everyone.
