ShoreTrips says...

This is unlike many of our dolphin swim opportunities as the dolphins are located in a wonderful waterpark full of waterslides, a lazy river, a dolphin show, a sealion show, and a show with seals as well. Along with your dolphin experience, you'll be able to stay at the park and play all day.

This exciting Swim and Snorkel Adventure really lets you interact with these friendly marine mammals. The adventure begins with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you'll experience. Group size is limited to 12 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.

From your platform in the water, you'll be able to pet and kiss the dolphins. Our professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you. Photo prices vary based on the package you purchase.

Then, after donning your life jacket, you'll enter the water and do a belly-to-belly dance with your new friend.

Next, don mask, fins, and snorkel to experience the grace and intelligence of these marvelous animals. Your trainer will have the dolphins display some of their amazing behaviors for you.

This is definitely a day you will long remember!

The cost of the dolphin swim includes admission to the water park to ensure a fun-filled, action- packed day.

  • On this tour, you will:
  • Shake hands with a dolphin
  • Kiss a dolphin
  • Belly-ride with a dolphin
