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 small St. Kitts group tour is a fun opportunity for the entire family to enjoy up-close and personal interactions with these fascinating creatures, swimming and playing with them in their natural habitat.
After a 30-minute orientation with 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 that are both safe and fun. During this St. Kitts tour you will have an opportunity to get a kiss and snuggle, see the acrobatic dolphins perform aerial tricks, and finish up with a ride on a boogie board as you experience the delight of being pushed through the water at a dolphin's pace. You can also slide up onto a dolphin's belly and hold onto his fins as he quickly glides backwards across the crystal blue water of St. Kitt's. This is a tour that really showcases the skillful tricks and playful games of the dolphins. Learn interesting facts about the ocean and its most friendly inhabitants from professional trainers who will regale you with fascinating information about these incredible marine mammals of St. Kitts.
Please Note: Your time with the dolphins will last approximately 60 minutes. You will have up to 2 hours of free time at the end of the tour to shower, review photos, and relax before taking a taxi back to your ship.

This was the best Dolphin Encounter we have ever participated in. The trainer was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He made sure everyone participated in all of the activities even if they couldn't swim. We have paid much more for Dolphin Experiences in other places and didn't experience half of the activities. A wonderful family experience.

We signed a release, donned life jackets and the adventure began We were able to swim with two dolphins at first and then treated to a third! Lucky us! Each of us got to pet, cradle, kiss and be transported through the water holding their fins and, finally, pushed through the water holding onto a kick board with the noses of two dolphins against the instep of your foot. It was definitely a bucket list thing for each of us and exhilarating! The only criticism that we had is that you are not allowed to take photographs. Im certain that that would have taken time and attention away from the experience. A souvenir photo would have been nice. They had a photographer who took 228 pics of the four of us and we could have purchased a single photo or the entire disc [$180] which I thought was pricey. We chose to hold our memories instead.

WONDERFUL! first off I would highly recommend using this company over the cruise ship. we had a group of 10 in our party, book early, we were done when a group of about 75 came in from carnival. it was one of my best lifetime memories. it was fun! The people were very friendly, price reasonable. the dolphins are exceptional! They took hundreds of photos for us to remember!!
On July 12, 2016, my niece, best friend, and I missed our excursion around 10 am but while at the ship port we met some of the Dolphin Discovery staff, and they informed us that we would be able to join another group. When we arrived at the Dolphin Discovery we thoroughly had a great experience swimming with the staff and the Dolphins. Prior to swimming with the Dolphins the young lady at the front desk introduced us to Abba. Working with Abba we set up pictures our package. Not only did he help us with pictures, I had another niece in the 12 pm session he made sure we all could take pictures even though we were in a different group. After explaining the picture packages and making sure we all could take pictures together, he answered any questions we had about the dolphins, he was a great part of the team. Abba was detailed, patient, and, great to work with!! He really helped make me feel at ease with my interaction with the dolphins.
