What You Can Expect

Dolphin Swim and Ride Program in Cancun

Dolphin Swim and Ride Program in Cancun

Following pickup at your Cancun hotel (if that upgrade is selected,) arrive at Cancun's dolphinarium. Meet the dolphinarium's expert trainers and don your provided life jacket. 

Wade into waist-high water to hear a talk about the characteristics of dolphins and how best to interact with them. Wait until a dolphin initiates an interaction with you, then nuzzle, shake hands, and give it a hug. 

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

Photographs and videos of your dolphin encounter, taken by the dolphinarium's professional staff, will be available in the gift shop for purchase. Finish your excursion with drop-off at your hotel if you have selected that option.

Please note: We recognize that this activity is not suitable for everyone and are sensitive to the issues surrounding dolphins in captivity.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

It was an amazing experience!!!! totally loved it!!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

This experience turned me back into a child - it was wonderful. Yes, part of me is sad that the dolphins are in captivity,yet they are well looked after and very playful. A very well-organised tour. You have to get your hotel to make the call to confirm your pick up time when you get to Mexico. I did the 11:30 - 13:00 and this was just enough time to spend an hour with the dolphins, get changed and choose photos. Be aware though, the prices of the photos are astronomical! If you want to spend time in the Wet n' Wild Park, select the other Viator activity.

The experience was super. The transportation was on time, but did not leave room to visit the water park. Very courteous service from the drivers and the personnel at the Dolphinarius. Photos of the experience are very expensive US29 each....


4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

It was a lot of fun! I only wish that we could take our own cameras and I could have spent all day with the dolphins!


3 star rating: Worth doing April 2016

The Dolphin swim was excellent but we were picked up a bit late which meant we did not have any time to spend at the water park afterwards.

All they cared was as to take photos with the dolphins and then pay them for the photos.
And not to mention that the photos are extremely expensive. We paiid $75 for 3 photos on a DVD. When they saw that we don't want more photos they told us that we can buy all 20 photos that they took with $150.
