Dolphin Royal Swim at Tulum Akumal
Pure excitement: action and speed!
Dolphin Discovery Akumal settles at the beautiful biodiversity reservation of Akumal Bay, one of the top ten places in the world because there are enough entertainments and sightseeing, like Yalku-Lagoon; Half Moon Bay and Bahia Akumal. Our brand new dolphin habitat in the Mayan Riviera is located just 20 minutes driving south from Playa del Carmen and 20 minutes driving north from the famous archaeological site Tulum. Here you will be able to live an unforgettable experience, a close interaction with cute and friendly dolphins.
The Dolphin Royal Swim program gives you several ranges of activities to enjoy. You kiss, and give a handshake to a dolphin, you learn all about them and touch the soft skin of these incredible marine mammals having a personal interaction with them. This swim with dolphins program includes the famous foot push where two dolphins propel you from your feet soles up the water surface. Awesome! Afterwards, you grab their dorsal fins as they speed through the water, giving you an exhilarating ride. Dolphin Akumal invites you to live the exciting adventure of swimming with these beautiful marine animals in our newest location besides the Caribbean Sea. Dolphin Discovery Akumal has breathtaking panoramic views and it is the only one with all dolphins born under human care (certified MIRACLE program)
