Amuse children with dolphin education

This Puerto Vallarta Dolphin Kids program is designed just for kids ages 4 to 8. While you look on from the sidelines, your kids will meet with professional dolphin trainers who will spend 15 minutes educating your kids on everything dolphin. From how they eat to how they swim to how they communicate, your kids will learn fun facts and all the basics to run home and tell their friends about. After the fun lessons, kids will wade into the water to meet legendary dolphins, accompanied by the trainers.
