On this tour you will:

  • Then, immerse yourself in three feet of water for a fun-filled approximate 30-minute encounter where you're invited to touch and play with these gentle creatures of the deep.
  • During the hands-on experience, examine the dolphin's smooth skin and delight in its gentle demeanor. Practice and learn some of the techniques the trainers use to communicate with the dolphins and discover how to feed them.
  • Delight in a very special kiss and "handshake" from the dolphins and enjoy a "dance" with your new mammal friend.
  • Move into deeper water and get ready for the highlight of your adventure as you are pulled across the surface of the water by the dolphin's pectoral fins during a "belly ride". During free time, you can continue to swim and freely interact with the dolphin.
  • At the completion of your swim, you'll have time to view the photos of your program.
  • Cross the street and enjoy approximately 45-minutes free time to explore the world famous Cayman Turtle Farm. Home to over 8,000 green sea turtles that range in size from six ounces to six hundred pounds, this nature preserve is the only one of its kind in the world.

You can hold young sea turtles for an exclusive photo opportunity at the turtle touch tanks. Note: Please follow the turtle handling protocols demonstrated by staff members. You can also view the turtle hatchery and the gift shop for souvenirs.
