Fifteen years ago, the captain of this catamaran started to have encounters with dolphins on a beautiful white sand bank. Over the years, he and his crew established a trusting relationship with a pod of wild dolphins by showing patience and respect.

The outcome of this relationship is your opportunity to accompany a team of naturalists who have spent years on the water in the company of wild dolphins. You'll observe them hunting, courting, communicating, and teaching their young. You'll do this in style, on board a dolphin tour boat with rooms for changing, a refrigerator, a freshwater shower, a restroom, and over 400 sq. ft. of deck space, partially shaded. This boat also has an underwater microphone so you can hear the dolphin's unique vocalization.

At the proper time, weather permitting, you'll be directed to slip into the water quietly and snorkel to the areas where the dolphins live. Very often, we've been told, one or more dolphins will approach you and scan you face-to-face.

Wild dolphins lead busy lives and we always treat them with the respect they deserve. For instance, if the dolphins are sleeping, foraging, feeding, or caring for their young, we'll simply watch from a respectable distance. We want to remind you that no one can guarantee an encounter with wild dolphins in the water, but we promise that you'll see and observe our friendly mammals and, most often, you'll be able to interact as well.

- We suggest that you bring a towel, non-oily sunscreen, a hat, camera, sunglasses, a light jacket, a small bag to secure your things, a few bucks, and a Big Smile!
- It's best to have a good balanced meal before boating.
- We suggest you bring along some sandwiches for this trip. There's a great gourmet place called the Waterfront Deli located right behind the boat. Chips and sodas will be provided for you.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
