Visit Playa del Carmen’s Dolphinaris

Your dolphin adventure begins at Dolphinaris Park, conveniently located just 15 minutes north of Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya. You’ll have a chance to interact with dolphins after receiving a 20-minute introduction to these playful creatures, learning how to ‘talk’ with them and how to keep each other safe while they take you for a ride. Loving trainers will be on hand to assist you and anyone ages 6 and older partaking in this program.

Swim and ride with dolphins

After your training, it’s time to get into the water with the dolphins. Your 40 minutes of water time allows you to greet them with a kiss, take a ride on their bellies as they swim backwards, and swim with the dolphins while wearing a dive mask so you can watch them move underwater. Photographers are available for photo shoots for you and your dolphin, at an additional fee.
