Spend some time in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean experiencing once-in-a-lifetime moments with wild common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, and occasionally even Risso's dolphins that may welcome you to their vast and blue home. 

Be advised that swimming with dolphins frequently causes changes in awareness in the participants. Be prepared to feel happiness, ecstatic delight, emotional release, profound relaxation, and mindfulness. It is said that because dolphins see the world as a whole, they will accept you as a member of it. This is a great chance to meet the dolphins and learn more about them.

We recommend you to be 30 minutes early for registration and briefing. Bring Water, a full change of clothing, Sunscreen & Chapstick for the Sun, and your swimming suit. Light meals are permitted, and if you have an underwater Camera don’t leave it behind – make sure to keep it securely attached to you in the water.
