Our most dynamic swim with dolphins program, defined with two words; action and speed. Only at Dolphin Discovery Vallarta you can find this unforgettable experience in a day filled of fun for your entire family. The Dolphin Royal Swim program includes the famous foot push, where two dolphins will push you from your feet soles above the water surface.
Following that you will hold on to two dolphins' dorsal fins and they will pull you across the water on the famous dorsal tow. The friendly dolphins will also give you a handshake with their fins, a peck on the cheek, and enjoy playing with you. Dolphin Discovery's habitat is located inside Aquaventuras Park Vallarta, one of the most popular locations. All our swim with dolphins programs in Vallarta include the admission to Aquaventuras Park. Come to enjoy 10 water slides, a fresh ride along the river, a kid’s playground and a swimming pool area all in a fantastic park!
Spend the best day at Dolphin Discovery!
