YOUR CHANCE TO ENJOY A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH THE FABULOUS DOLPHINS IN MALTA

The Marine park currently have five adult Bottlenose Dolphins and three Calves, with the latter being born at the Park. They are also trained through the positive reinforcement technique which stimulates them both physically and mentally. These Bottlenose Dolphins are fed a mixture of capelin, sprat and herring. Participants to the Dolphin Interactive Programme can enjoy a close encounter with Dolphins for approximately 15 minutes. This is a dry interactive programme and participants to this programme will be allowed to touch and/or try the positive reinforcement technique at first hand. Participants for the Dolphin Interactive Programme must be over 6 years of age. Guests who intend to book a Swim with Dolphins should NOT book a Dolphin Interactive Programme for the same person/s on the same day, this is mainly because both the Swim with Dolphins and Interactive Programmes are done at the same time, furthermore guests who have booked a Swim With Dolphins will also be interacting with the Dolphins. Note that the price of the Interactive Dolphin Programme also includes free entrance to the Park and the 3 daily shows/presentations
