ShoreTrips says...

The fascination with dolphins is amazing and those who interact proclaim an almost human connection with these very intelligent mammals. You will have one hour for an intimate experience that will prove unforgettable. Your program begins with an orientation to learn how to best relate to these well-trained dolphins. Part of that orientation takes place in the water so you understand their behaviors.

We suggest taking the 10:15 or 11:45 ferry to arrive on Blue Lagoon with plenty of time to spend on the beach before participating in this select encounter with your dolphin. Snooze in a double hammock under swaying palms, swim in the clear, turquoise lagoon, and for an additional fee, enjoy refreshing beverages, food, and water sports!

Meet, kiss, hug, pet, and feed the dolphins in deeper water for the first 30 minutes. The program then continues in a private lagoon area and for the remaining half hour, you are in a secluded setting with the dolphins. You will have not one but 2 dolphins in the most intimate setting, a lagoon beach.

Shallow water activities with the dolphins will include an amazing dorsal tow, a star turn, cradling(!!!), and kissing the dolphin. On top of all that, you will have the favorite foot-push with a boogie board.

This program delivers an adventure that is tough to compete with and is on many travelers' bucket list.
