Get up close and personal with one of nature’s most amazing creatures in a hands-on close encounter! Your Dolphin Encounter begins as you travel across the resort’s lagoon to Bailey’s Key, the private home to a large family of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins.
At a beach-front cabana, a brief orientation will be given. Then you’ll walk along a white sandy beach to wade waist-deep into the gin-clear waters of the Caribbean, where trained naturalists will give you a personal introduction to a resident dolphin. The trainer will describe the dolphins’ characteristics, anatomy, and behaviors and will give you the opportunity to touch, kiss, and play with a member of this friendly family of marine mammals.
