Swimming and having direct contact with a dolphin is not something you will come across numerous times in your lifetime. This is an experience you will treasure in your heart forever and you will also learn about dolphin behavior and communication. The highlight of a visit to the Marine Park in Malta is the opportunity to swim with a bottlenose dolphin during a 30-minute adventure. Accompanied by a professional trainer, small groups of guests will enter into a 6 metre deep pool and will interact with the dolphin to experience the natural behavior of these beautiful and intelligent marine mammals at first hand. This is a special programme and is open for adults and children from 8 to 12 years. Besides the person swimming with dolphins, you can also book family members or friends as spectators who can watch the swimmer enjoying this special and memorable moment. Spectators can also take their own photos from the guest stand during this once in a lifetime swim adventure.
We highly recommend that you book your swim with dolphins well in advance of your arrival to Malta in order to secure availability.
The swim with dolphins programme lasts approximately 30 minutes and will include an educational documentary and personalised treatment by the professional trainers. Wetsuits are provided to guests in LOW/Winter Seasons whilst an adjustable life vest is provided in SHOULDER & HIGH/Summer Seasons. All guests must be good, confident swimmers and are kindly requested to take their own normal swimwear and towels.
