This specialist tour to Dolphin Bay at the iconic Atlantis, The Palm Resort, offers the rare opportunity for certified divers (above 15 years) to scuba dive with the brilliant bottlenose dolphins in a highly controlled environment. So get ready to interact with the world’s most beloved and charming mammal marine mammal as it enthusiastically swim around you underwater, showing off their graceful frolics.
After you strap on your mask and get outfitted with the scuba gear, listen to the informative 15-minute orientation by your expert marine mammal specialist who will clearly brief you on the experiences and safety techniques as part of this 30-minute underwater adventure. Before you dive down the three-meter deep lagoon, you’ll get to spend some time in the lagoon’s shallow area and even touch and feed your dolphin. In fact, it’s the only Dolphin Bay program which allows guests to feed dolphins.
Once the experience begins, be enthralled by the intelligence of this mammal, as it delightfully responds to the trainer’s hand gestures and performs a variety of underwater acrobatics. The trainer will reward it with its favorite treat for every awesome trick, which ranges from whirling around and giving a quick peck on diver’s cheek to fabulously jumping leaping out from underneath and then splashing back to water. What’s more, you can even clutch on to their fin as they move at pulse-pounding speeds.
This activity is not only incredibly exhilarating but also exceptionally safe, with three underwater trainers to efficiently cater to a group of six guests per dolphin.
