Dolphin Swim Adventure

If you have always dreamt about swimming with dolphins, look no further. With a wide range of options to choose from Cabo San Lucas has earned its position as the best place to swim with dolphins.

Here you will be able to learn about and interact with Pacific Bottlenose dolphins in protected areas that allow for getting wet and up close to these beautiful animals. The following programs are available throughout the year.

1. Dolphin Trainer for a Day

Designed for those who crave more than just swimming with dolphins, this program offers a unique opportunity to spend an unforgettable day helping the team of experts at the Dolphin Center, from feeding and behavioral training techniques to helping out with the various dolphin programs on offer.

2. Dolphin Signature Swim

The Signature Swim is an exclusive experience for very small groups and is the program that allows for the most time in the water with the dolphins. In addition to an educational introduction to the biology of dolphins this program also includes learning special hand training signals and positive reinforcement to communicate directly with them. Once in the water enjoy rides, hugs and kisses with these highly intelligent creatures.

3. Dolphin Swim & Ride Experience

This program is similar to the Signature Swim but allows for bigger groups of people and less time in the water with the dolphins.

4. Dolphin Encounter

Designed with non-swimmers in mind, this program is an ideal introduction to the anatomy, physiology and history of dolphins, and also includes shallow pool interaction with them.

5. Dolphin Kids

Specifically designed for young kids aged 4 to 9 this program gives them the opportunity to interact, have fun and get closer to dolphins than they ever dreamed possible.

Swimming and interacting with dolphins definitely rates at the top of the list of Cabo San Lucas activities. 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.
