ShoreTrips says...

In Los Cabos, our friendly dolphins swim in their natural habitat--an ocean cove where they feel at home--and you can enjoy their company to the fullest.

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 50 minutes in the water. 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.
