Dolphin Adventures
" a dream come true!"

Visit the WebsiteThe Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin Encounter, Dolphin Kids and Trainer for a Day programs at Dolphin Adventures are exciting family activities that give you another reason to come to Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

Located in nearby Nuevo Vallarta, the Dolphin Adventure Center is one of the few dolphin and marine mammal educational centers in the world that offers people of all ages the opportunity to experience up-close and personal encounters with Pacific Bottlenose dolphins.

Dolphin Adventures offers two programs for those who'd prefer their first dolphin experience to be on "solid ground." Dolphin Encounters allow non-swimmers to learn more about dolphins while standing in waist-deep water in specially designed seawater pools, and Dolphin Kids gives smaller children the chance to learn about, interact and play with dolphins in a fun and safe environment.

The more adventurous can experience the thrill of Swimming with Dolphins or spend an unforgettable day working beside Vallarta Adventures' professional marine mammal trainers in the Trainer for a Day program.

No matter which you choose, you'll get closer to dolphins than you ever dreamed possible, while enjoying a special closeness with these amazing animals - so make your reservations TODAY!

My family and I recently did the dolphin swim and it was the most amazing experience. The staff was friendly and we had the best time swiming with the dolphins. By far the best time we had in mexico, highly recommend them.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the wonderful time I had swimming with the Dolphins. You guys are awesome. The trainer I had was funny, nice, informative and much more. You guys ROCK!
Just returned from a cruise to Mexico which included a stop in Puerto Vallarta where my wife, son, and I did the dolphin swim at your facility.Your program is absoultly the best ever!Words cannot adequatly express the joy we felt in being able to connect with these beautiful animals, and many thanks as well to the wonderful staff and trainers. It will be an expierence we will never forget! We have done the Royal Dolphin Swim in Cozumel wher the emphasis is more on entertaing the peopple with lots of tricks rather that teaching them about the dolphins and allowing that one on one connection. Don't ever change what you are doing.Thanks again and we will return as well as spread the word.

I just have to thank all the people of Vallarta Adventures for the amazing times we had on your tours. We did the canopy tour, dolphin swim and snorkeling at las Mariatas. At all times I felt completely safe in the hands of the experienced guides hands. This allowed me to completeley let go and have a blast. On each tour I had a great time and walked away having learned something new and had an even greater reverence for the wildlife and environment around me. What was the best experience though was the staff. Every employee I met seemed to genuinely love their job but also treated the environment and wildlife with such respect and reverence. It was truly an heartwarming experience. Thanks again to everyone at Vallarta Adventures for making My Friends and My Fiancees and My Experience one we will Never Forget. We will definately share our comments with anyone headed for holiday to Peurto Vallarta, and rebook all of our next tours with you.

Had a trainer for a day with the dolphins and a sea lion and got to see the birds. It was incredible! The birds\' beauty was fascinating. The dolphins and the sea lion was great. (Though they eat a lot!) Special thanks to them for their tricks and patience with me as I learned about them. Kisses to Kaitsa and Nemo (dolphins) and Cassandria (sea lion).
My wife and I came to you on our honeymoon on the 29th of May 2006 and we did the Trainer for a Day and we had the most wonderfull day that we will never forget. All the staff were so nice and especially the dolphins they were just out of this world.

I just want to say I'm so glad I booked with you guys. I've swam with dolphins before but nothing compare to the experience I had in Oct 2006. Thank you very much, and I will be seeing you pretty soon for the trainer for a day option.
Dino Hernandez
My dolphin experience during my visit to Puerto Vallarta is one I will never forget. You went out of your way to make sure it was the greatest experience I could possibly have, and it meant the world to me. When I arrived I had a love for the dolphins, I now have a passion! Thank you again.
The opportunity to interact with your incredibly intelligent, gentle, beautiful dolphins was a magnificent opportunity and those are memories that I will cherish always.
DeLayne Lantz
I recently took part in the Trainer for the Day program. Thank you so much for helping make a lifelong dream come true.
My partner and I enjoyed an encounter with the dolphin named Tinda and had a fabulous time. A very moving experience to say the least - you have a great program there and I feel you serve a very valuable role in creating awareness and understanding for these amazing creatures.
Glenn Lahay
The Dolphin Encounter at your facility was the highlight of my vacation in Puerto Vallarta! You have a great center and excellent staff!
I have been to Discovery Cove in Orlando, and your program was much, much better. In fact, I would say that the Swim with Dolphins was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Vallarta.
