Dolphin Action Swim

Overview

This dynamic 45 minute dolphin activity begins with a brief introduction to two dolphins, who will greet you on the platform with a handshake, a kiss, and a friendly smile. You’ll then enter the water for a playful swim to experience a thrilling “Footpush”, as the dolphins push you by the feet above and around the water’s surface, allowing you to feel their speed and strength! Then, take it easy on a ride around the lagoon, while holding on their smooth dorsal fins for the famed “Dorsal Ride”. In addition, they will amuse you with various water behaviors, vocal skills, tail splashes and applause.
