One of the most exciting things to do in St. Kitts is play with the dolphins. On this St. Kitts, you'll get to do just that out in the Caribbean waters. Now is your chance to get up close and personal to these beautiful, intelligent creatures. Check out this St. Kitts excursion today.

The St. Kitts dolphin encounter lets travelers get face-to-face for some memorable fun.

Before getting into the water, you will spend about 30 minutes getting debriefed by your tour guide. After the briefing, the next 40 minutes will involve playing with dolphins.

This was way fun. We got to get in the water with the dolphins (standing on a platform). We got to pet and kiss and hug the dolphins. A lot of it is just posing with the dolphin for photos, but they really are great photos. :)

This was an absolute bucket list activity of mine. Of course this was an experience I will never forget. Only thing I would comment on negatively would be the cost of the pictures. Obviously people need to purchase them because no cameras are allowed. So I feel they take advantage of people because they want pictures of their experiences with the dolphins.

Although there were more activities you could do with the Dolphins, my daughters only wanted to meet them and not ride them. They had a great time and only complaint they had was that they wish they had more one on one time with the dolphins. The photo prices at the end are ridiculous, but this was one of the few excursions where my daughters 12 and 10 could do the activity on their own and my wife and I didn't have to pay for ourselves to be with them, so it was a wash in the long run.

Overall a good experience but when we saw some people being pushed and pulled we realized we chose wrong tour ( more money). When comparing ships tour don't forget you have a taxi ride of $20 more but still worth it. The taxi ride was an experience in itself 😀
