Dolphin Close Encounter
hrs Estimate Duration
Enjoy a once in a lifetime kiss and hug from one of our Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. This is an interaction that is fun and educational, ideal for non-swimmers and families with young kids.
Your bus will bring you to UNEXSO where you can enjoy a quick dip in the pool before your 20 minute boat ride to your destination. Once at Sanctuary Bay, one of the most natural and largest protected dolphin facilities in the world, you will begin your dolphin encounter. Learn about these amazing creatures as the informative staff conducts an educational orientation. Interact with these friendly dolphins while they splash and jump around you, and then step into a 3 foot deep platform of crystal blue waters where you will touch, kiss and hug a dolphin.
Before you depart, don’t forget to say hello to the many tortoise’s that live on the property and have your photo with one of the colorful parrots or white macaws. After your incredible experience at Sanctuary Bay, head back on the boat to the gift shop to see your professional photos and be given the opportunity to shop prior to returning to your ship.
