Dolphin interaction, lunch and a beach. A wonderful way to spend your day.

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.

This program includes a 15 minute briefing and 30 minutes in the water with the dolphins.

After your dolphin program, to extend your enjoyable day, a delicious lunch will be provided. You will also have some time at their beach club with access to lounge chairs, showers, lockers and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
