Limited to just 10 guests per dolphin, this one-of-a-kind experience lasts around 90 minutes and includes a 15 minute orientation and 30 minutes in the water with the dolphins.

Wade into the shallow waters of the lagoon and watch the dolphins show off their favourite skills and behaviours before an up-close interaction which includes touching, hugging, holding ‘hands’ and even ball games.
