Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 2-3 hour swim with dolphins cruise for one person

Experience an adventure of a lifetime, as you swim with wild dolphins. During the cruise, we will encounter up to three types of Dolphins; the local resident Bottlenose Dolphins which are normally found very close in-shore along the beaches and ocean headlands. Encounter Common Dolphins sometimes in pods numbering up to one thousand and Oceanic Bottlenose Dolphins, which are the strongest and fastest dolphins in the ocean. Cruises are conducted in the morning as this is when the seas are usually calmest and the dolphins are playful.

During your dolphin swim, you will be the only person in the water. You will be kept in close contact with the boat by holding onto a rope, whilst the dolphins swim under, beside and around you. This is a truly amazing experience! Each person will take turns in the water swimming with the dolphins! The time that you will get to spend in the water with the dolphins will vary, depending on how long the dolphins want to play on the day.

It is essential you are able to swim. This is open ocean snorkelling, previous snorkelling experience is advisable, and being comfortable with your face in the water is essential.
