Here is an opportunity for the young ones to get an introduction to a real dolphin. The program begins with a an explanation of dolphins, how they live and what makes them so special and interesting to us all. After donning life jackets, you and your child will enter the water with the trainer. You will then have the opportunity to touch the dolphins and even receive a kiss from them. You and your dolphin friends will spend 20 minutes together in the water.

Each participating child must be accompanied by a parent. If you are one parent with 2 children, the dolphin facility will provide an adult to accompany the second child at no additional cost to you.

You will be taking a taxi from Zihuatanejo to the facility for a cost of about $10 per taxi. Allow 15 to 20 minutes to get there. If you are in Ixtapa, your ride should be about 5 to 10 minutes and considerably less.

- The facility will take pictures and videos during your swim. The cost of the photo is $7.00, a VHS video is $30 and a DVD is $70. They will also do a personalized video for $90.00. All of these may be purchased after your activity.
- You may come and observe for a fee of $10, which is paid when you arrive at the facility. You will be allowed to take pictures and videos from the deck.
- Please note that in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo there is some confusion about ship time vs local time. Please see your purser on your ship to clarify whether your ship changes its time to local time so you do not miss your excursion. As each ship is ruled by its captain, it is your responsibility to confirm this while while you are sailing.

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.
