Dolphin Swim Experience (departs from Puerto Vallarta)
Learn all about the world of the Pacific Bottlenose dolphin from the best possible teachers – the dolphins themselves.
This program starts with an interactive orientation guided by dolphin experts, teaching you all about the dolphin’s anatomy, physiology and unique characteristics. You’ll learn special hand training signals and positive reinforcement to communicate directly with these highly intelligent creatures, thereby giving you a unique insight into how these enigmatic mammals behave.
You’ll wade into the clean, clear shallow waters of a specially designed pool to begin your exclusive dolphin experience. Getting to know your new friends up close, with playful hugs and kisses.
You’ll also get the opportunity to take a ride across the pool from one of your new dolphin friends. It’s an experience you’ll never forget! Don’t miss this chance for you and your family to make a life-long connection with the ocean’s most curious and playful animals.
