Tortola Dolphin Discovery Swim
Duration: Half Day
If you dream of swimming with dolphins during your Caribbean holiday, there are a number of exciting opportunities available on the British Virgin Islands. There are approximately 60 beautiful islands to discover here, of which only around 15 are inhabited, offering many exciting activities to participate in, on land and in the water.
The lush green main island of Tortola offers an extensive range of tours and activities for holidaymakers, and swimming with dolphins is one of the most popular choices. Dolphin Discovery at Prospect Reef Resort provides a wide range of interactive dolphin programmes which have been specifically designed to enable visitors to swim, touch and bond with these beautiful, fun-loving marine mammals in a safe and relaxed environment.
Befriending a dolphin is a wonderful experience, particularly for children. Designed specifically for children of all ages, the Dolphin Discovery Swim enables your family to do just that. Dolphins are extremely friendly and sociable creatures, making them one of the most exciting marine mammals to swim and have fun with. Prepare yourself for an emotional moment as your dolphin comes to greet you with a handshake and a wet kiss on the cheek. You can even kiss him back! An on-site photographer will be there to capture all the wonderful memories for you and your family to take away with you.
Dolphins are extremely intelligent creatures, which you will learn on this trip. Hear your new friend sing his special song, and then enjoy free time to get to know each other. It won’t take long to form a close bond. If you feel comfortable, you can move off the platform into slightly deeper water, where you can join in with some fun activities whilst swimming with your new friend. Dolphins are very energetic and they love to play and have fun. Your new friend may even perform special tricks and acrobatics for you. These graceful beauties are a delight to watch as they flip and spin in the air with perfect ease and timing. You will be amazed at what they can do!
This delightful dolphin adventure is an unforgettable experience and a wonderful addition to your family’s holiday in the British Virgin Islands.
