You don't have to be a swimmer to interact with dolphins in their natural habitat. At Nuevo Vallarta's dolphin center—just a short drive from Puerto Vallarta—even non-swimmers have an opportunity to become acquainted with these lovable creatures up close. The Dolphin Encounter program provides a chance to feed and play with dolphins in a lagoon filled with waist-deep water, so anyone can join. It's both family friendly and educational.


  • Interactive dolphin program in Nuevo Vallarta
  • Touch, feed and play with the dolphins
  • Educational session
  • Professional trainers

What You Can Expect

Nuevo Vallarta Dolphin Encounter

Nuevo Vallarta Dolphin Encounter

Your Nuevo Vallarta dolphin experience begins with an educational session in which you are introduced to your new friends. You'll learn all about the bottle-nose dolphin's anatomy, physiology, natural history and animal training.

Then, get ready to enter the water where trainers bring you face to face with the dolphins. For 15 minutes, groups of no more than 8 people get an incredible eye-to-eye look at the dolphins, feel their smooth skin, give training signals and even feed these amazing animals!
