Dolphin Adventure Swim and Water Park

This dolphin program was created especially for you and the dolphins to share a series of sensational and safe activities, while establishing a unique bond of trust. Group size is limited to 10 guests to ensure that you have a very personal and unforgettable experience.

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. The orientation is approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Next, you will finally get to experience the grace and intelligence of these marvelous animals. Your trainer will have the dolphins display some of their amazing behaviors for you. During your incredible dolphin encounter, they'll pull you with a boogie board through the water, tenderly say hello with their fins, kiss you, sing for you, take you for a ride on their belly and jump or play with you. A professional photographer will be on hand. Total swim adventure lasts approximately 45 minutes, including the orientation.

After the Dolphin Adventure, enjoy a complimentary box lunch while you relive the excitement of your unique experience. Next, enjoy the outstanding Aquaventuras Water Park, including water slides, a lazy river, a dolphin show, and a sea lion show.

The cost of the dolphin encounter includes admission to the water park to ensure a fun-filled, action-packed day. You may observe someone participating in a dolphin program by paying the admission fee into the park.

Please Note: The tour duration is for the dolphin interaction only. It does not include time at the water park, as this is on your own, or the time required to transfer to and from the park. This tour requires one participating adult per child participant.

Family liked it but it's not my thing
February 17, 2020
I personally do not enjoy these types of adventures but that's my issue. My family enjoyed this very much. Be sure to sign up for this one and not just the "experience" because this one allows you to actually swim with the dolphins while holding on to its fins and to be pushed by your feet while you're holding a boogie board. We did one of these in the Bahamas and this facility was much, much nicer than the one in the Bahamas. My only big complaint is we paid for the pictures which I can view on line but I'm having difficulty downloading them.

A wonderful excursion
July 11, 2019
When i booked this excursion i chose to do it early in the day so that my guests could use the water park at their leisure and return back to the ship to have plenty of relsxing time. The agent however never mentioned to me that for some reason the norwegn bliss did not check the ship time to match the local time and so there was a 1 hour difference. When the ship made the announcement regarding the time difference , we were concerned We had been told by your agent to arrive very earky to the scheduled appointment to gain entrance into the park as eell as to put all personal items in lockers. It did all work out but had your agent told me about this time difference, which i have never encountered on any cruise, i would have booked a different time slot. Let me repeat that it did all worknout. It was a wonderful excursion for my guests and i would indeed recommend it to others.

Lovely dolphins!
August 13, 2018
We took UBER to go to water park. Water park and lunch ticket included. There were water slides and zip line, both good for family. Dolphin experience was 1. Kiss / handshake 2. hold dolphin's Pectoral fins and swim together 3. 2 dolphins push each foot to swim. There was small children who swam alone. Photo/Video were not allowed for dolphin area, we need to pay for professional photo. 3 photo & CD costs around $140. And you should take bug repellent, there were sandflies around dolphin area.

Spent 45 mins with just the two of us, the trainer, and Quinto the dolphin. Their photographer did a fabulous job capturing the moments.

Dolphin Swin & Water Park

We enjoyed the Royal Dolphin Swim and the lazy river. We ran out of time - so didn't get to do many slides. We upgraded to include the Sea Lion swim - but the dolphins were the highlight.
