Enjoy a personal and unforgettable shallow-water dolphin interaction when you wade into waist-high crystal clear waters and enter the intriguing and playful world of dolphins. Watch as they swim and show off some of their favorite skills, then come nose to bottlenose for a truly up-close experience when you touch, play ball with, hug, and even kiss your new dolphin friend. This intimate experience is limited to just 10 guests per dolphin and is appropriate for all ages; this interaction is especially suitable for non-swimmers.
Join dolphins in the deeper lagoon waters for a one-of-a-kind experience. Make your way to the center of the lagoon alongside a dolphin, then take a thrilling signature belly ride back to the shore. Go for a spin as a dolphin pushes your hand, and thank your new friend with deep water hugs and kisses. This intimate experience is limited to just 6 guests per dolphin.
