The warm waters of Mozambique host large numbers of wild dolphins whose behavior is unusual in their warm welcome of visitors. Perhaps because they have never been threatened and enjoy an abundant diet, the wild dolphins are said to behave more like the trained dolphin of Mexico, happy to swim and share their joy with visitors. Many visitors describe their dolphin encounters as a spiritual experience of great beauty. The island lodge offering this experience makes sure that these dolphin encounters are ethically managed by trained guides for minimal ecological impact. Small groups receive training in dolphin behaviour and sociability and swim with dolphins in their natural habitat. Many groups spend up to an hour swimming dolphin in clear sparkling waters

As with any wild animal encounter there is a chance of not seeing dolphins, but their abundance makes this a very rare event.
