Dolphin Swim and Snorkel Package is an extension of the Encounter experience and it takes place at Bailey’s Key, one of the little keys in front of Anthony’s Key Resort, In Sandy Bay Area. The family of Bottlenose dolphins are living in their private area for years. The experience will start at a beachfront cabaña where you will receive an orientation before to meet the dolphin trainer at the beach and start your encounter in small groups in shallow water enough to stand in: learn about the anatomy, behaviors and strangest curiosities of these beautiful intelligent mammals.
After the first 30 minutes of “warm up”, you will be able to continue your experience and actually become a part of the pod for the next 30 minutes. Here, you’ll be able to swim and snorkel with all the dolphins in their environment.
Under the supervision of a trained guide, you will see these creature in their “normal life”: swimming, playing, socializing. If you are lucky you will witness the sweet interaction between mothers and calves, hear how they communicate underwater with their clicks, and offer them a bunch of algae to play with.
