Dolphin Encounter

Designed especially for kids and families, the Dolphin Encounter is the ideal program to introduce your children to nature and the beauty it offers. The entire activity is done from a platform, ideal for those not comfortable with swimming. The program includes a dolphin kiss, a hug, and a handshake. While you’re in the water, you will also be able to enjoy their games, dancing, and singing.


Swim Adventure

This dolphin swim experience is extraordinary. Firstly, because you will enjoy snorkeling with these amazing mammals, wearing an underwater mask! You’ll see the incredible speed and dexterity of the dolphins close by and direct. After interacting with the dolphins receiving a kiss, a hug and some playful extras, you will delight in the exciting belly ride. Hold on to the dolphin’s fins as he swims backwards and drags you across the surface!


Royal Swim
