ShoreTrips says...

There are big differences among the many dolphin experiences that are promoted throughout the Caribbean. Some arrangements break my heart when I see these large mammals in a confined space. Others earn my respect. The company that runs this tour is a member of the Alliance of Marine Mammals Parks and Aquariums, as well as the International Marine Animal Trainers. They work hard at keeping their dolphin family content.

If you're lucky enough to reserve a Swim with the Dolphins experience, you'll have the unique opportunity for playful, educational interaction with these wonderful mammals in the beautiful turquoise waters of an ocean lagoon. The program begins with an orientation, which briefly covers the natural history of dolphins, animal training techniques, ocean conservation, and Watchable Wildlife Guidelines.

Once in your life jacket, you'll enter the water in a small group and swim and play with the dolphins for 30 minutes. You'll experience the joy of a dolphin hug and kiss, dance with our stars, and then marvel at their strength as you're propelled across the lagoon during the amazing foot push!

Throughout the program, trainers will focus on allowing everyone to enjoy a high degree of interaction with the dolphins, while teaching about these amazing mammals in their natural habitat.

Professional photo and video staff will be capturing your swim on film so you'll have a chance to take home priceless souvenirs of your memorable experience.

Since we hold most of our space in the 10:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. time slots, we suggest that you request these for the best chance of receiving a confirmation.

Please note that the 3-hour tour length includes the ferry ride to and from Blue Lagoon Island, where the dolphin facility is located, but does not include the time it takes for the taxi or water taxi ride to the ferry dock.
