Tortola Dolphin Royal Swim
Duration: Half Day
For anyone who wants to get up close to dolphins during their holiday in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, this unforgettable Royal Dolphin Swim is a trip not to be missed.
Located in the Caribbean, to the east of Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands is a paradise destination for those seeking breathtaking landscapes, stunning beaches and excellent diving and water sports opportunities. There are 60 islands and cays here in total, of which approximately 15 are inhabited. The largest island in the chain is Tortola, where you will discover lush green mountains and rainforests, stunning white sandy beaches, beautiful national parks, a wealth of history, spectacular wildlife and numerous activities to embark on, both on land and in the water. Whether you are staying on Tortola during your holiday, or visiting the island on a cruise, one particularly exciting activity available is a visit to Dolphin Discovery at the Prospect Reef Resort.
Dolphin Discovery offers a wide range of interactive dolphin programs for visitors, enabling you to experience the beauty of these amazing and intelligent creatures whilst getting up close to them. Swimming with dolphins in the crystal clear blue waters surrounding Tortola Island is an unforgettable experience, and the Royal Dolphin Swim is undoubtedly one of the most popular and exciting tours available.
Prepare yourself for plenty of speed and action! This exhilarating adventure starts by being sung to and greeted by two beautiful dolphins. An onsite photographer will capture the memory for you as the dolphins give you a handshake and an affectionate kiss on the cheek. You can even kiss them back! This is a wonderful way for both adults and children to interact with these friendly marine mammals. You will then be taken on a thrilling Dorsal Tow Ride through the water as your new friends whisk you away at top speed whilst you grab hold tightly of their fins. This is the ride of a lifetime and will certainly get your adrenaline pumping!
Next, get ready for the foot-push, one of the most exhilarating and memorable moments of the adventure. Feel the dolphins’ mighty strength as they swim underneath and push you up with their noses, lifting you above the water from the bottom of your feet. Enjoy the feeling of exhilaration as you glide across the water at top speed. It’s like surfing on dolphins! If you can only choose one dolphin activity during your Caribbean holiday, pick this one.
