While indulging in a Puerto Vallarta vacation, we know you are expecting amazing activities and unique encounters for making memories that you can share with your friends and family, and that you can savor for years to come. This is why swimming with dolphins is such a popular and well-loved activity for Puerto Vallarta vacations. In fact, there are many great companies in Puerto Vallarta which offer this wonderful experience. Just ask at Hotel Mousai’s tour agency for recommendations.
Swimming with Dolphins on your Puerto Vallarta vacation
We know that you want to visit a place where the dolphins are happy and healthy. This is why we suggest that you choose a reputable company. Ideally the place should have a large enclosure for the dolphins to swim in and a clean environment. Alternatively you can use a company that allows you to swim with wild dolphins, although not always available.
What to expect when swimming with dolphins
If you choose a dolphin experience company that uses captive dolphins, you can swim with them and probably give them a kiss and get a photo too! You could even have the trainer experience and be pushed along by their noises or learn to communicate with them, all depending on the tour you book on your Puerto Vallarta vacation.
If you choose to use a company that seeks wild dolphins then you won’t be able to kiss or hug them, but you will get a really unique experience. Spending time with the ocean’s most charismatic and curious mammals in their natural habitat is an experience you won’t soon forget! The only set back to swimming with wild dolphins is being able to find them, and some tours spend long hours in search for pods.
Tips for swimming with dolphins
When you have your very own dolphin experience, we want it to be the best it can be for you and the dolphins. This is why we recommend that you don’t wear sunscreen as it can contaminate the water that surrounds the dolphins. Book in smaller groups, too, to get more time with the dolphins and to ensure they’re not stressed. Treat the dolphins with kindness and respect and you can be sure that you’ll be rewarded with the kind of experience that will not be easily forgotten or trumped!
