SWIMMING WITH WILD DOLPHINS

Wanderlust, wellness and adventure retreats

Since 1999, Halo Gaia Wellness and Adventure Travel has committed to creating a deeply relevant, life changing experience for our guests via swimming with dolphins and our collaborative dolphin retreats in Ponta Malongane, Mozambique.

We facilitate interactive, eco–friendly travel dolphin experiences that intimately unite and engage our visitors with the authentic spirit of Southern Africa. We strongly encourage responsible travel by stepping off the beaten track and embracing the WILD spirit of adventure within all of us.

Halo Gaia Wellness and Adventure Travel specialises in wild dolphin encounters, dolphin retreats, wellness adventures and ocean safari packages from the bay of Ponta Malongane / Complexo Turistico do Malongane in Mozambique. Respectful Marine Mammal Tourism is at the core of our mission and it is in this arena of awareness that a deep love for the diversity of our planet, ocean and indigenous cultures are shared by our host, Courtney Ward.

Meet your host

COURTNEY WARD

Courtney has been involved with Halo Gaia since 1999. Her personal history of extensive travel, ethnic music exploration, community living projects and completing her studies in Complementary Health at the Institute of Natural Health all played an important role in the inspiration to apply these gifts. For the past 19 years she has grown intimately close to the large pod of resident Bottle Nose Dolphins that swim the Southern Mozambique coastline.

Marine Conservation

PONTA DO OURO PARTIAL MARINE RESERVE

Halo Gaia Adventure Travel / Complexo Turistico do Malongane are honoured to have been granted a Dolphin viewing and interaction permit in November 2011. This licence permits RESPECTFUL MARINE MAMMAL TOURISM and allows our water craft within close proximity to the dolphin pods, given that the behaviour of the dolphins is respected.

Spirit Song By Courtney

This trip was truly transformational.  I was listening to my heart and when I heard about Courtney and Shakti’s Dolphin Retreat. It was a clear YES.  However, nothing could have prepared me for the depth of experience, learning and healing that lay ahead.

Wendy

The planning, and the activities were awesome, the boat trips were amazing, the drumming vibrated throughout my spirit and soul, and the sound journey allowed me to release and discover what love and passion really feels like within ones heart. To all the amazing people that were on the journey, I am blessed to have met you, and I hope that our paths will cross again.

Karen

What an amazing experience, what an amazing place and you two beautiful spirits are the most amazing people. I really feel very privileged to have made your acquaintance and shared your love. Courtney I want to meet with you once a week for my energy fix. Courtney, don’t ever stop spreading the magic.
