Dolphin Welfare
The safety of our guests and dolphins is our number one priority. Here are a few key rules to make sure everyone (including our dolphins) have a great time!

  • Jewellery, watches, hair accessories, hats, sunglasses and loose articles are not permitted in the water.
  • We provide all guests with either a wet suit or swim vest for their interaction; you will wear your swim suit underneath. All guests are required to wear either a wet suit or swim vest during their programme. For the safety of our animals, we cannot allow you to wear your personal wet suits.
  • Cameras are not allowed in the water. However, we do provide a photographer throughout the interaction. Plus we also offer an Observer Pass which allows your friends and family to capture photos from the safety of the beach.
  • Please know that your scheduled time is for the mandatory check-in and not for the interaction itself.
  • It is very important you arrive at your scheduled time. We are not able to provide a refund or reschedule you if you do not arrive on time.
  • Please do not apply any type of tanning oil prior to entering the water. Tanning oils can wash off into the lagoons and can harm the dolphins. Sunscreens and sun blocks are permitted if applied in moderation. Any excess should be removed prior to your experience. Please keep in mind that you will be wearing a wetsuit which does provide some sun protection.

Please take the time to review our complete set of rules, age and swimming requirements, and rescheduling polices on the right-hand menu.
