Nothing beats watching your child smile and laugh as they meet and become friends with a dolphin! Our Cabo Dolphin Kids tours are safe and fun, hands-on, small-group encounters designed to give young marine mammal enthusiasts the experience of being up-close with one of these amazing animals.
Our experienced marine mammal specialists are there to guide swimmers and non-swimmers alike as they play with and learn from our family of curious and intelligent Pacific Bottlenose dolphins in our specially-designed shallow water pool. And you get to enjoy it all from the comfort of our observation area, where you’ll see ear-to-ear smiles and hear giggles of delight as your kids enjoy the experience of a lifetime!
The Safest Dolphin Encounter in Cabo
You’ll be close by during the entire Dolphin Kids encounter, but your children will enjoy feelings of independence as they don life jackets and join our trainers in the pool. There, they’ll be greeted by the huge smiles and happy vocalizations of our family of highly-trained Pacific Bottlenoses. While some grownups can find dolphins intimidating, children typically feel comfortable with them right away because they share so many of the same traits: curiosity, playfulness and a love of all things silly!
Please note that all of our dolphin swim programs, including Dolphin Kids, have a well-established safety record and our aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. That way, you can spend the encounter watching your kids laugh and play with their new flippered friends.
Learning Through Play
There’s no better way to learn about life under the sea than from the animals who call that habitat home! Children who take part in our Dolphin Kids tours do more than just splash around with a dolphin. As they pet and hug a Pacific Bottlenose, they’ll be learning about this animal’s unique anatomy firsthand. And when they shake a smooth fin or ask for a slippery dolphin kiss, they’ll be learning more about dolphin behavior. The goal of all of our dolphin swim and dolphin encounter programs is to give people – including kids – who love these animals a chance to learn more and to create a lifelong personal connection.
Knowledge Leads to Caring
Children who have a chance to swim with dolphins tend to care more about them and want to protect them from harm. When your child participates in Dolphin Kids, our family of dolphins works hard to give them a better understanding of why marine research and conservation is important. The children who meet a dolphin face to face and interact with these fascinating marine mammals are often inspired to do more to keep our oceans clean and healthy. Who knows! Perhaps after your Dolphin Kids encounter, your child will decide they want to become a marine mammal specialist!
