    Dolphin Encounter at Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya

    A program for all ages: Learn and have fun!

    The Dolphin Encounter program in Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya Puerto Aventuras, is especially designed to bring you and your family close to nature and discover plenty of information about the most tender and playful animals that always seem to be smiling-the dolphins. Your family will be able to enjoy a number of safe and fun activities especially designed for kids big and small.

    Our goal is to teach all we know about these amazing marine animals and for you to have a good time. The dolphin interaction can be enjoyed from a platform in the water. The program includes a handshake, a peck on the cheek, and a special song for you. The dolphin will also delight you with its playful skills. Our privileged location in Puerto Aventuras allows us to offer you the best service. The habitat is located in a private residential complex in the Riviera Maya. Come and enjoy dolphins returning home with an unforgettable memory and a smile from ear to ear.
