What You Can Expect

Tortola Dolphin Royal Swim

Dolphin Royal Swim

Make your way to Dolphin Discover Tortola, located in the Prospect Reef Hotel. Meet the dolphin trainers and listen to an informative orientation that informs you about dolphin behavior and how to safely interact with them. 

Wade into waist-high water and wait until a dolphin initiates an interaction with you, then get a handshake and a kiss on the cheek. Staff photographers will be on hand to capture these moments.

Peer underwater to grasp the full grace and athleticism of the dolphin's movements. Listen for their singing and clicking sounds as you watch them swim and play. Finish up your unique day with these creatures by catching a ride on one of them via foot push or dorsal tow. Trainers will follow closely to make sure that both animals and humans are totally safe during this special opportunity. 

After 30 minutes with the dolphins, you will exit the water with a new respect for these creatures and some great memories.

This was just a dream come true.......for sooo many years i dreamt of swimming with these wonderfull mammals. The staff were helpfull and friendly and the location was really good - especially for the dolphins. Once in the water i was in my glory - the dolphins are such characters and funny as well. I would do it again in a minute - just to be able to be a part of their space - even for such a short time was wonderfull.

It was one of the best experiences I ever had! I hope to do it again someday. The dolphins are amazing and I met wonderful people. Unfortunately, the cd I purchased of my photos was damaged and I hope to purchase another. Do you know if that's possible and if so, who would I contact? I will be very sad if I cannot get another copy. Please advise. Thank you, Karen Richel

The experience of swimming with the dolphins was absolutely fantastic. Having watched the other activities available which looked great I think it was well worth paying the extra money to have the Royal Dolphin Swim programme as the groups are smaller, you have more personal time with the dolphins and the programme has greater content. I will add however that the photographs and DVD's produced on site by the centre staff, whilst professional in quality are highly priced and a 'rip off' in my opinion. I think the centre would sell more of these if they were more sensibly priced.....Steve and Lynne Palmerini.
