Dolphin Royal Swim
Dolphins are known to be highly intelligent and social animals, and they are playful ambassadors to the waters off of the island of St. Kitts. This St. Kitts tour lets the entire family get up-close and personal with these fascinating creatures, swimming and playing with the dolphins in their natural habitat. This St. Kitts excursion takes things up a notch, adding a more dynamic and thrilling ride to your activities with these amazing ocean creatures.
After a 30-minute orientation from your knowledgeable guide, take a swim in the pristine Caribbean waters and frolic with the dolphins. Pet them and enjoy specially designed activities with these good natured marine creatures. They will give you a kiss and snuggle with you, perform aerial acrobatics, and finish up with their famous foot push, where two dolphins will lift you out of the water in a thrilling flourish. Experience the exhilarating dorsal tow as well, as two dolphins pull you across the crystal waters as you hold on to their dorsal fins.
Watch as the dolphins perform skillful tricks and playful games. Learn interesting facts about the ocean and its most friendly inhabitants from professional trainers who will regale you fascinating information about these incredible marine mammals.
Pregnant women may not participate in this tour for safety reasons. Life jackets are required for all who participate. Sunblock, jewelry, watches, rings, bracelets, or any object which might scratch the dolphin is not permitted in the water with the dolphins. The instructors have the final say on what can and cannot be worn in the water with the dolphins. For security reasons, personal cameras are not allowed in the water, nor in the program area. A professional photographer will be on hand to take pictures, which will be available for purchase.

Maybe one of the best excursions I have even taken. It was easy 10 minute $6 cab ride to the site. Delightful handlers. I was amazed at the dolphin interaction and thrilled with the dolphin pull and push. Awesome animals. Pictures are a personal choice, but we chose to buy them as they turned out terrific and serve as a good memory! Highly recommend the royal swim over the lower priced dolphin experience - the experience you get to pet the dolphins but not swim with them. Every person in the group who only did the experience had wished they would have paid a little more and done the royal swim.

We love our expirence our trainer was really fun and our dolphin was so cute and gentle so amazing yes the pictures are expensive but totally worth it the pictures are really good quality better than any phone pics love it
I'll admit that I was somewhat unexcited about swimming with dolphins, but boy! was I surprised. It was a thrill. I came away amazed at the strength of the dolphins. I'm over 250 lbs., and they lifted me almost completely out of the water just by pushing on my feet. I put the pics on Facebook, and I received more comments about the dolphin pics, than anything else we shared from our cruise. Highly recommended.

This experience exceeded all my expectations. To actually interact with dolphins and realize how smart they are was something I'll never forget. You don't have to be able to execute your part of the stunts perfectly because the dolphins allow for our human ineptitude and compensate in timing, speed and balancing to make your water experience successful. The photo sales didn't bother me at all. If you don't want pictures, don't go back in the store--there is no reason to go back in except to purchase pictures.
