Dolphin Royal Swim and Water Park
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 guests 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.
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.
