This tour starts with a brief training session, in which you learn all of the hand signals and techniques you need to know to be able to communicate effectively with these amazing marine mammals. After you have been briefed on this important information, you will then be able to venture in small groups (capped at six people each) to interact with these fabulous undersea mammals for a memorable encounter. You will relish the chance to play with the dolphins in a number of different ways. Thrill in the opportunity to feed them, touch them, pet them as well as swim alongside them in our special, saltwater swimming pool.

Our trainers are highly experienced and very passionate both about the well being of the dolphins but also about the quality of your visit to the center. We want to be sure that you receive the utmost pleasure from your encounter with these magical beings while ensuring that dolphins are not exploited for entertainment. Our staff also wants to make sure you walk away with an understanding of the importance of our environment and ecological balance and to have a deeper appreciate of the variety of life on this planet.

Q: Do I need to reserve in advance?

A: We have a limited number of participants during our dolphin activities, so in order to assure your place we suggest your reservation in advance, especially if you plan to visit us during the high vacation season from November until after the Easter Holidays with a few other Holidays throughout the year. As well, we often offer specials that are only available when you reserve online in advance.

Q: May I bring a camera or video camera to take pictures?

A: Cameras are not allowed into the pools or observation areas for your safety, for the dolphins safety and the safety of the equipment but professional photos will be available for purchase after your experience.

Q: Can I wear Sunscreen? (SPF)

A: While we recommend you wear sunscreen, it must be biodegradable for the protection of our dolphins and sea lions. Any other sunscreen must be showered off before entering the dolphin area. Our gift shops sell biodegradable sunscreen.

Q: Can I wear jewelry?

A: We recommend you remove all jewelry, including wedding rings, ear rings, and piercings, before coming to the dolphin center. Although we provide an area to secure your personal belongings, it is easy to drop, lose or misplace, so we recommend you to leave jewelry and small items secured in your accommodation’s safe or front desk safe.

Q: Why do you limit the number of sessions for people to interact with dolphins?

A: At Dolphin Adventure the animals' health and welfare are of primary importance.  The sessions are limited to ensure an enjoyable schedule including a variety of activities for the dolphins. The dolphins spend only a combined total of less than two hours each day voluntarily interacting with the public. The rest of the day is allocated to the dolphins' private time, valuable training time, as well as play and social interaction.

Q: How safe are Interactive Programs?

A: In-water-interactive programs have a remarkable, well-established record of dolphin and human safety. The health and safety records of these innovative programs have been studied, analyzed, and restudied for over 20 years, each time reaffirming their exemplary achievements.

Q: Can I make a Dolphin sick if I participate in a swim program?

A: Since the initiation of in-water marine mammal interactive programs in 1985, there has not been one instance of disease transmission between humans and dolphins reported at any of the facilities that offer "swim with the dolphin" programs.

Q: Can I do any of the dolphin programs if I am pregnant?

A: For your personal safety and the wellbeing of your unborn child we do not allow pregnant women to participate in our dolphin and sea lion programs.

Q: Can special needs visitors participate in your dolphin programs?

A: We do our best in trying to provide this experience to everyone although it is not always possible. It is very important for you to mention during your reservation, which is the specific need. We will assess your request and decide on the best option for your comfort and security in a group setting. Our dolphins gladly interact with all of our visitors, no matter their sex, appearance, or abilities. We also offer an amazing special needs program that is customized and is a private session which we recommend for an enhanced dolphin experience.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Antalya Signature Dolphin Swim is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
