A combination of both shallow water and deep-water interaction, your swim experience will start with an introduction to these amazing mammals followed by a 20 minute hands on interaction and swim with the dolphins. Learn about conservation and the value of your participation during the shallow water portion of your experience, where you are seated waist-high on a submerged platform and the dolphins rest on your lap. Enjoy the excitement of swimming or floating in the deeper water where your interactions continue with opportunities to observe them underwater as they swim underwater as they swim under and around you in their ocean lagoon habitat. Guests will be provided with the required flotation vests, complimentary lockers, outdoor showers and post program changing rooms. An onsite photographer will take photos available for the same day viewing and purchase to ensure you can share your memories. Tour price also includes admission to the National Museum of Bermuda’s fort, maritime and cultural exhibits, which you can browse and explore in addition to your dolphin experience
