The ultimate dolphin activity in Playa del Carmen! Not only will you get to do the Royal Dolphin Swim in it's entirety, but you'll but you'll get the incredible experience of interacting in the water with the very rare manatee! Not only that but you get to play in the water with funny sea lions!  There is no other activity in the Riviera Maya like this one, and maybe nowhere else in the world. Don't miss your chance to experience these amazing creatures!

Your tour begins as you go behind the scenes with the trainers, learning about the animals, their habits and biology. You'll work hand-in-hand with the trainers to prepare the food that you'll feed to the manatees later. After this eye-opening experience, you'll get into the water, where you'll feel, hold, and interact with sea lions and manatees, followed by the high-speed excitement of the Royal Dolphin Swim. What a tour!
