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.

Here is an opportunity for the young ones (and the young at heart) to get an introduction to a real dolphin.

The program begins with an explanation of dolphins, how they live, and what makes them so special and interesting. After donning life jackets, you'll enter the water with your trainer by descending a set of stairs to a submerged platform. The water will be about waist deep. You will then have the opportunity to touch the dolphins and even receive a kiss from them.

Photos will be taken of your dolphin kiss and will be available for purchase after your Encounter.

  • On this tour you will:
  • Handshake
  • Hand Target
  • Hug and Kiss
  • 15 minute briefing with 40 minutes in the water
  • Buffet meal & national open bar
  • Use of amenities such as lockers, showers, swimming pool and lounge chairs
