Tour Details

This up close and personal encounter takes you onto a platform in waist deep water to meet these incredible creatures.

After an approximately 30-minute orientation with the instructors/trainers, you will step onto a special platform that will cover half of your body in water. From this shallow position, you will take turns meeting your new friend who will give you unlimited love, a handshake, and perhaps a little song and dance. You will be able to pet them and exchange looks; a gaze full of liberty and love.

It does not matter if you are 1 or 80 years old, you will be able to enjoy this experience with your new friend. As groups are limited to only 20 members at a time, it is important that you book this early to avoid disappointment. The dolphin portion is approximately 30 minutes. Professional photographers will be on hand taking pictures.

After your dolphin encounter, continue the fun with your included admission to the Turtle Farm, one of Grand Caymanís greatest tourist attractions known around the world for its conservation programs, public awareness and entertainment. The farm includes over 500 turtles separated in tanks that show the progressive stages as they age. You will learn about turtle gender, reproduction and the operation to keep them from becoming extinct. There is also a touch tank and many opportunities for photos of the turtles. The farm is located adjacent to the Dolphin Encounter.

Your dolphin encounter also entitles you to a discounted admission ($20 US per person) to the Boatswain's Beach Park. Here you will find 2 swimming lagoons, a nature trail with a small cave system, a predators reef with sharks, groupers and eels, a lagoon for a snorkeling experience with a viewing panel towards Predatorsí Reef, an aviary with Caymanian and Caribbean birds flying freely in an enclosed setting, Cayman Street where you can view traditional buildings featuring distinctive Cayman designed porches, doorways, gardens and local artisans, as well as restaurants and gift shops. There is enough to make a full day of fun for all ages.

In order to allow you to tour at your own speed at the turtle farm and/or park, taxi to and from the dolphin center is not included in the tour price. Taxi for the 15 minute drive between downtown and the Dolphin park should cost you approximately $25 US per person each way for the vehicle and most taxis can hold up to 4 guests. This gives you the ability to return at your leisure.

There is no cost for observers for the Dolphin portion only, and no need to pre-reserve; you simply pay for transportation to and from the dolphin park. Observers must pay to visit the turtle farm or Boatswains Park. The facility has lockers, changing rooms, fresh water showers and a snack bar for you to utilize during your tour.
