Cancun Dolphin Encounter

Cancun Mexico


Set sail to Isla Mujeres and make your dream of playing with a friendly dolphin a reality during the Dolphin Encounter program. See and touch the dolphins up close from the safety of a secure platform. You will only be waist deep in the water, so it’s perfect for the family and those who aren’t as confident in the water. During the program you will learn everything you need to know about these amazing mammals, including how to identify them individually, their eating habits, scientific data about them and more! All of this while feeling their soft skin, receiving gentle kisses and handshakes. Get ready for a truly enjoyable experience with the dolphins.
