Dolphin Encounter Grand Cayman
Tour Detail

Dolphin Encounter & Turtle Farm Conservation Tour

Cayman Island Grand Cayman


Get up close and personal with the Caribbean’s most playful and friendly dolphins. You’ll be welcomed into the water by the bottlenose beauties for a swim and get a chance to enjoy a wet hug, a warm handshake and even a special kiss. If swimming isn’t your thing, this dolphin interaction can also be enjoyed from a platform in the water. While you are in the water, the marine mammal specialists will teach you some fun facts about the dolphins and how they care for them. Next you’ll make your way, to the Grand Cayman turtle farm, one of the world’s few Turtle Conservation Parks. Here you’ll have the chance to take a look at the breeding pond, which is home to the green sea turtles and also the turtle touch tanks, where you can reach in and touch the yearling turtles for the perfect photo opportunity. Smile for ‘Smiley” the 9 foot saltwater crocodile as he puts on a show! Keep the memory of this special day alive when you get local crafts from the Splash Gift Shop.
