The Programme


Also starting with an educational talk, imparting various facts about the bottlenose dolphin, its biology and ecology, the Dolphin Emotions Exclusive experience is a completely private experience, where 2 participants, under the supervision of a trainer, can enjoy moments of pure emotion with the fantastic dolphins.

During the whole experience, participants are accompanied by an instructor who will be able to answer your questions.

Including the educational session, the time spent getting changed and the session in the water, the total duration of the experience is approximately 90 minutes.

This experience is also recorded, with a video and photo album offered to participants at the end.
