ShoreTrips says...

Isla Mujeres is a quaint, charming island located directly across the bay from Cancun. With its warm, transparent waters, it is a perfect home for the dolphins. Come early before your dolphin swim or stay afterward to explore the island's history, spectacular beaches, restaurants, and bargain shopping.

Imagine the thrill of playing with the dolphins! Action and speed make this program the most popular, as it really lets you interact with these friendly marine mammals. The program begins with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience.

From your submerged platform in the water, you will be able to interact with the dolphins, including the very popular dolphin kiss photo.

Then you will enter the water (life jackets required) for a speedy ride through the water for the dorsal tow as you hold on to their fins. Next is the highlight of your time with the dolphins--the foot push. Feel all their strength as they push you up and through the water by the bottom of your feet. Truly the experience of a lifetime!

Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.

Our professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you. Photo prices vary based on the package you purchase.

Following this awesome adventure, you'll enjoy personalized service in our air-conditioned Dolphin VIP Lounge. Here, you can relax in the infinity pool, sip a premium drink from a selected liquor collection, and partake in an exquisite international buffet featuring shrimp, salmon, pasta, salads, and more.
