The Dolphin Encounter is our entry level dolphin swim, geared toward families with small children, people who can't swim or are not comfortable in deep water or anyone who wants to swim with dolphins but at a lower price point. This activity is performed in the water while standing on an underwater platform, where our other dolphin swims take place in deeper water where you are actually swimming.

This activity is great for some cuddly dolphin photos without breaking the bank, and is sure to put smiles on everyone's faces - adults and kids alike.  You will enjoy cuddling with the dolphins, watch some amazing dolphin tricks, and more.  After the Dolphin activity, you can relax at the beach club and use the facilities.  The beach is really gorgeous here.  There is also a restaurant and bar, lounge chairs, even optional watersports, this is a great place to spend the day.
