ShoreTrips says...

Enjoy our dolphin program in the jungle surrounding Puerto Aventuras! This beautiful resort village is in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, south of Playa del Carmen and en route to Xel-Ha and Tulum. Restaurants, shops, boat rentals, fishing, and pristine beaches are all available on site.

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 includes a 15-minute briefing and 60 minutes of swim time with the dolphins. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience. There is bonus time included to interact with sea lions and manatees!

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