Tour Details

The program begins with an approximately 30-minute orientation, including a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience.

After stepping onto a submerged platform in the water, you will be able to interact with the dolphins in waist deep water including the very popular dolphin kiss photo.

Next, you will enter the water (life jackets required) for a speedy pull through the water during a dorsal tow as you hold onto their fins. Next is the highlight of your time with the dolphins - the foot push. Feel all their strength as they push you up and through the water by the bottom of your feet.

Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.

Professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you on video and photo.

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 the park, fees for the taxi to and from the Dolphin Park are not included in the tour price. Taxi for the 15-minute drive between downtown and the Dolphin Park should cost you approximately $25 US each way for the vehicle. Most taxis can hold up to four 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 (during your encounter), changing rooms, fresh water showers and a snack bar.
