Make your own way to the Moorea Dolphin Center at the InterContinental Resort and Spa, and check in at least 30 minutes prior to your selected Dolphin Encounter or Dolphin Swim.
Start your dolphin experience with an educational talk as expert trainers discuss the anatomy, habits and behaviors or Moorea’s marine mammals, including dolphins, whales and porpoises. Learn, too, about the threats posed to these animals and efforts to protect them and their habitat.
After a safety briefing, you’ll slide into the water while accompanied by a trainer who introduces you to one of three bottlenose dolphins that live in a natural lagoon at the island resort.
Choose from the following two options, offered at various times throughout the day:
Dolphin Encounter (30 Minutes):After the introduction, stand in shallow water while your guide demonstrates how to touch and play with these intelligent animals. You’ll have ample opportunity to interact with a dolphin during the 15 minutes that you spend in the water. Children between 2 and 7 years old can participate when accompanied by an adult.
Dolphin Swim (30 Minutes):Once you have learned about the dolphins, snap on a life jacket and head into deep water with your guide. Watch a dolphin up close, observe its playful antics underwater and even swim alongside it during your 15 minutes in the water. Children between 10 and 13 years old must be accompanied by a participating adult.
