This program was established especially for you and the dolphins to share a series of sensational and safe activities while establishing a unique bond of trust.
During the session, you will personally interact with these highly intelligent and friendly sea mammals. Your Professional Instructor will teach you about dolphins, their environment, and their behavior. You will also learn several training techniques.
Once this is complete, you will enter the water (life jackets required) to thoroughly enjoy this incredible experience with the dolphins. You will be pushed by a Dolphin while on a Boogie Board, pulled by their pectoral fins and swim with the Dolphins.
The session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 12 people to ensure a very personal experience. A professional photographer will be on hand taking pictures.
After your dolphin encounter, continue the fun with your included admission to the Turtle Farm, one of Grand Caymanís greatest tourist attractions known around the world for its conservation programs, public awareness and entertainment. The farm includes over 500 turtles separated in tanks that show the progressive stages as they age. You will learn about turtle gender, reproduction and the operation to keep them from becoming extinct. There is also a touch tank and many opportunities for photos of the turtles. The farm is located adjacent to the Dolphin Encounter.
Your dolphin encounter also entitles you to a discounted admission ($20pp) to the Boatswain's Beach Park. Here you will find 2 swimming lagoons, a nature trail with a small cave system, a predators reef with sharks, groupers and eels, a lagoon for a snorkeling experience with a viewing panel towards Predatorsí Reef, an aviary with Caymanian and Caribbean birds flying freely in an enclosed setting, Cayman Street where you can view traditional buildings featuring distinctive Cayman designed porches, doorways, gardens and local artisans, as well as restaurants and gift shops. There is enough to make a full day of fun for all ages.
So you can tour at your own speed at the turtle farm and/or park, taxi to / from the dolphin center is not included in the tour price. Taxi for the 15 minute drive between downtown and the Dolphin park should cost you approximately $25 each way for the vehicle and most taxis can hold up to 4 guests. That way you can return at your leisure. Just make sure to return before your ship's last tender time from shore.
There is no cost for observers for the Dolphin portion only, and no need to pre-reserve; you simply pay for transportation to and from the dolphin park. Observers must pay to visit the turtle farm or Boatswains Park. The facility has lockers (during encounter), changing rooms, fresh water showers and a snack bar.
