Fodor's Review

The adventure starts with a short boat ride as you leave the beautiful shore of Bávaro in the background. The main program includes instruction, a show, and a 25-minute swim with snorkel gear in calm, protected waters with the adorable dolphins or sea lions. Children must be at least eight years old to swim, and no pregnant women are allowed. Snorkeling gear and a flotation vest are provided. Reservations must be made at least one day in advance through one’s resort's activity desk; free shuttles depart from the hotels. It's expensive but it is a vacation memory to be underwater and hear these gentle creatures sing and "talk," and when they surface they give wet kisses.
