Full description
Feed, play and interact with real-life dolphins. This program is perfect for families with young children that don’t mind getting splashed but aren’t ready to be in the water with these friendly faces. The dolphins will be ready to greet you dockside. Prior to meeting the beloved mammals, you’ll get a brief educational session on the world of dolphins, conservation, and a mini demonstration on proper hand placements for each kind of dolphin behavior. Next, feed and play with dolphins from the dry training docks. Guests will also get the opportunity to have some fun playtime interaction, which can be semi-customized to better enhance each guest or group. You’ll even have your own talented photographers capturing your experience throughout the program.

Getting there was already a bit exotic. The pool with the dolphins is located in the back part of a hotel complex. A good 2 weeks beforehand we had moved the appointment forward by 2 hours, when we arrived nobody knew anything about it and it had to be clarified first whether we could participate at the desired time. When that was clarified, we had the short-term offer instead of playing with the dolphins from the edge, to swim with them, which of course was significantly more expensive. But after a little thought, we accepted it. Since we weren't prepared to go into the water with the dolphins, we didn't have our bathing suits on. Unfortunately, the facility has no changing rooms, let alone showers to wash off the salt water after a swim. This is very unfortunate. Especially when your own hotel is more than 2 hours away! But swimming with the dolphins is just really well organized. The photos at the end but only mediocre.
