The Programme

The Dolphin Emotions Premium experience starts with an educational talk, imparting various facts about the bottlenose dolphin, its biology and ecology.

Then, participants spend about 30 minutes in the water, where, under the supervision of a trainer, they are invited to meet the dolphins, experience moments of tenderness and affection and perform an aquatic behaviour sequence with these extraordinary ambassadors of the ocean.

During the whole experience, participants are accompanied by an educator 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.

There is a maximum of 12 participants in each session. On the day of the experience participants can acquire the video and/or photographs of the experience.
