Imagine an exchange of looks; a gaze full of liberty, love and everything we are by nature but we have forgotten. That is the beginning of an unforgettable experience in Vallarta, beside our marine mirrors and friends, the dolphins.

During the Dolphin Encounter ® program, you and your family will have the opportunity to receive all the affection of these tender and playful animals that always seem to smile. In this swimming with dolphinsprograms, your kids will be able to enjoy safe and fun activities that Dolphin Discovery Vallarta has specially designed for all ages. Doesn’t matter if you are 1 or 80 years, you will be able to enjoy from a platform that will cover half of your body and swimming is optional.

Your new friend will give you unlimited love, he will give you a handshake, he will sing and dance, you will be able to stroke him and swim in a place that he and his other dolphin friends call “home”: the Pacific Ocean.
