Kids under 2’11” enter for free, kids shorter than 3’11” must swim with an adult, and all kids and adults taller than 3’11” have the opportunity to enjoy the Puerto Vallarta dolphin swim on their own.

Swim with playful dolphins in Puerto Vallarta

During your Aquaventuras dolphin adventure, you’ll slip into the water with friendly dolphins who will want to shower you with hugs and kisses. In this Puerto Vallarta dolphin swim, you can add on more than a handshake, kisses and hugs. Here, the dolphins will swim up to you and allow you to take a hold of their dorsal fin as they pull you through the water at full dolphin swimming speed. Grabbing from the dorsal fin, allow the dolphins to give you a push and a lift in and out of the water with a foot push. What a fun Puerto Vallarta dolphin swim!
