In the wild
ENCOUNTOURS cater for the discerning dolphin enthusiast and offer an intimate look into the lives of our local dolfriends.
Each season holds it's own unique appeal and each in-water encountour it's own special story....
During the winter months we welcome the whales as they migrate through the peace of the Maputo National Park.
If it's your dream to connect with dolphins then look no further! With over two decades of experience in their behaviour and the beautiful coastal shallows of Ponta, Angie and Mitch will take you on a truly memorable and joy filled experience that will leave you a little wiser in understanding the way of the wilds.
Encounters with wild dolphins are organic and spontaneous; by allowing oneself the opportunity of doing multiple launches almost certainly guarantees a bout of conscious interaction & an eye to eye encounter with the resident dolphins in the big blue.
Our signature encountours have been specially created to accommodate stay times, budgets and dolphin desires and can be tailour made for dolphin retreats, corporate getaways, family celebrations, weddings and educational school tours.
Our tours include snorkel tax ±90 - 180 minute boat trip, soft gear (mask, snorkel & fins) and pre-launch presentation, safety talk; code of conduct and introduction to the local Dolphins of Ponta and research and conservation efforts in the MNP.
Launching is subject to sea state; due to the nature of wild dolphins, sightings cannot be guaranteed. Well behaved and respectful children from 5 years old welcome. Tours are best at sunrise when conditions are calmer and dolphins more sociable.

Dolphins should never be chased or herded in order for you to get a closer look, they should come to you out of their own free will. This is what we call conscious interaction.
