  • Enter into the world of the intriguing and intelligent bottle-nose dolphins in this shallow water interaction which is intimate and educational. A 90-minute session with these amazing creatures will not only bring you close to these fun-loving mammals but will also give you the opportunity to learn more about them with the help of Marine Specialists, who will be available on the premises to share their knowledge about them and educate you on how to help preserve their habitat and conserve their population. This is a fascinating experience especially for the younger animal enthusiasts. You’ll spend 30 minutes in 3-meter-deep water, where you’ll be able to experience the deep-water hug, deep-water kiss and pectoral dance. On the belly ride, the dolphin will turn over, and you will hold the fins and be belly-to-belly as it swims through the lagoon. For the hand push, the dolphin will spin you around in the water. The minimum age to participate is 8 years and the program is limited to just 6 guests per dolphin. Note that an adult is required for children from 8-12 years. Your full program includes time for check-in and changing, when you will be fitted with a wetsuit, and then a 15-minute orientation and safety briefing. Then you’ll be ready to meet the dolphins with the trainers. Observer Passes are reserved for family and friends of those participating in dolphin interactions.
  • Lucky enough to have visited dolphin bay twice now and experienced the incredible sensation of swimming with dolphins. The staff were incredibly friendly, professional and accommodating. The facilities were so clean and well maintained and the whole place was a joy to behold.
