The Swim with Dolphins Trip is a breakthrough in dolphin / human interaction. Using specific approach techniques and relying on the dolphins amazing intelligence and inherent interest in humans, we now are able to share with YOU an open water, in-water dolphin experience. You are connected safely to the boat at all times and in the water right next to the dolphins as they glide from bow to bow- in front of, below, and next to you! The best thing is that this all takes place right here in the crystal clear waters of the Natural reserve of Ponta de Sao Lourenco – Madeira!

PREPARATION ON LAND
– Introduction to dolphin behavior and biology
– Safety on board and in the water
There are a few pieces of gear you need for swimming with the dolphins. Do not worry if you miss anything as we will give you all you need at no extra cost:
– Mask and snorkel
– Short wetsuit
Based on the information received by our look-out on land, we will be heading to the area where the dolphins were spotted.
Once with the dolphins, the crew will evaluate the opportunity of swimming with that particular group. Should the group turn out not to be suitable (e.g. showing boat avoidance) we will find another one.
If the Dolphins are OK, we will swim with them 4 people at a time.
