Dolphins are one of nature's smartest, most intuitive animals. Pacific bottlenose dolphins are sleek, active animals who love to swim, dive and perform playful tricks. You can even hear them laughing when they are having fun in the ocean. Dolphins are quite genial and there are even stories of them helping sailors who have been swept overboard or surfers who are injured in the water. There is nothing to fear; the experience of being in the water with these creatures is truly magical.
You'll soon discover the joy of hugging, and interacting with your fine "flippered" friends. You'll be amazed at their intelligence and skill.
The highpoint of your day is the thrilling one-on-one swim. Hold on tight! It's an exhilarating and memorable experience that you'll never forget! The choice of a dorsal fin ride, belly ride or the amazing underwater dolphin ride awaits!
At the completion of your swim, give a final farewell to your loveable new friends and leave the Cabo Dolphin Center with wonderful memories of your amazing experience.
