Monday was one of those days I will never forget. We spent a beautiful day out on the sea with friends and got to swim with wild dolphins, snorkeling in the corals and had lunch served on a small island.

I never believed when the crew said that we could swim with the dolphins … Ok, maybe jump in the water and swim in the sea where they just swam their own way but we actually got so close we could touch them.

I never imagined this!

I wished I had one of those GoPro cameras so I was able to show you some images from under the water. I hope that these pictures will get you an idea how unbelievable it was.

We then went to a nearby beach for a great lunch and all of us had a great time.

It’s my first time to Mauritius and we’re enjoying our time here.
