A little information about Dolphins in Mauritius

Dolphins are perhaps the most fantastic of all the creatures that live in the ocean. The dolphins, cheerful and playful are symbol of intelligence and grace.

In Mauritius, the dolphins live in pods of about 20 individuals or more and can be observed swimming from Tamarin Bay (on the west coast of Mauritius), on their way to the deep sea off the coast of the Le Morne peninsula.

The most common dolphins in Mauritius are the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin.

The Bottlenose Dolphin and the Spinner Dolphin have chosen the West Coast of Mauritius their place for rest and sleep before heading for the deep sea for their fishing.

The Bottlenose Dolphin is one of the most common and well-known dolphins. Bottlenose Dolphins are grey in color and measure between 2 to 4 meters (6.6 and 13 ft) long, and weigh between 150 and 650 kilograms (330 and 1,400 lb). Bottlenose Dolphins live in groups called pods that typically number about 15 dolphins, but group size varies from solitary bottlenose dolphin up to groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 dolphins. Their diet consists mainly of small fish.

The Spinner Dolphin is dark grey, with darker patches in the tail stock, back and throat. Usually it has creamy-white patch on the belly though this varies considerably. The beak is distinctively long and thin, with a dark tip. The fins too are lengthy for dolphins of this size. Adults vary in size from 120 cm to 235 cm and weight from 23 kg to 78 kg. Individuals reach maturity at 4-7 years (females) and 7-10 years (males). The Spinner Dolphins congregate in groups that vary from just a few dolphins to great schools numbering thousands.
