After arriving at the Aquaventuras Water Park, check in for an unforgettable family Dolphin Swim Adventure. The program begins with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience.
After stepping onto a submerged platform in the water, you will be able to interact with the dolphins in waist-deep water, including the very popular dolphin kiss photo. A professional photographer will be on hand taking pictures.
Next, you will enter the water (life jackets required) for a speedy and amazing dorsal tow pull through the water, as you hold onto their fins. Next is the highlight of your time with the dolphins: the foot push. Feel all their strength as they push you up and through the water by the bottom of your feet!
Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.
Professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you on video and stills, which will be available for sale.
The cost of the dolphin encounter includes admission to the water park, for a totally fun-filled, action-packed day. You may observe someone participating in a dolphin program by paying the admission fee into the park. The cost is $25 US for adults and $19 US for children age 2-12. Children under 2 are free.

This is one of the most educational and thrilling times I've ever had. To have a dolphin tow you around a pool or have them even lift you out of the water is an experience everyone should have at least once in your life. You learn about their training, their life habits and even how they live. A fantastic time for all ages.
