Advantages Can learn about the lovely Dolphins. Kiss, hug, and play with them!
Disadvantages a little pricey
It was my boyfriend's dream as a kid to swim with Dolphins. So to make his dream come true I've been doing research and found this site www.dolphin-academy.com. It is located at Sea AquariumCuracao (Southern Caribbean), which was great!There are different programs, depending on your age, budget and what you prefer. Pregnant women can only participate in the Dolphin Encounter Program.
Before all the activities, you will receive instructions from the trainers. Customers must fill in an assumption of risk waiver before the activity of: Dolphin Swim and Dolphin Snorkel. You must get there before hand to pay for your activity and they will hand you the color coded wrist band for your activity and different color coded wrist band for the spectators.
You must bring along bathing suit, towel and suntan lotion. If you’ve forgotten your towel, you can always purchase it from the academy; it’s about USD20-30.
2. Dolphin Swim: this program allows you to enjoy the unique experience of real interaction while swimming with Dolphins. This is the program I’ve chosen for my boyfriend. It is a once in a life time experience for him. He loved it very much! This program gives you the opportunity to touch, interact, swim and enjoy your time with the dolphins. There were 2 adult dolphins and 1 6months old baby dolphin. They were adorable! But during the activity you must keep kicking you stay up in the water coz you cannot use you hands at all incase you scratch the dolphins. My boyfriend said it was very tiring! The program last about 30 minutes so be prepared!
