Get ready for action and speed!  In our Royal Dolphin Swim activity, your dolphin friends will propel you across the water with their noses on your feet so quickly that you'll rise out of the water and fly like Superman!  What a rush!  Another favorite activity with the dolphins is the dorsal tow, where two dolphins pull you across the water, an exhilarating ride!

You will have plenty of other time to interact with the dolphins as well, including hugs, handshakes, play time and more.  This is our top selling dolphin swim!  It is the same at either location, but at this location you will enjoy also one of the best beach clubs in Playa del Carmen, located on one of the world's best beaches.  Here you can relax and enjoy the sunshine, restaurant and bar, or optional watersports if you like.

This dolphin swim includes round-trip transportation, and is conveniently located for anyone staying in Playa del Carmen or especially on the north side of town.  If you are staying south of Playa del Carmen, our other Royal Dolphin Swim will be more convenient for you.

Cruise Passengers:  Yes! This makes a great cruise shore excursion. The dolphin center is only 10 minutes from the Calica cruise pier, and 15 minutes from the Playa del Carmen Ferry Pier!
