Cabo Dolphin Kids Program
What 4-year-old doesn't dream of a chance to swim with dolphins? In our Cabo Dolphin Kids Program, your kids can get a chance to swim and play with dolphins in a fun and safe environment. This program is designed especially for kids ages 4 through 9 and provides an experience of a lifetime for children. Both educational and interactive, this program is perfect for children who want to learn and play. Playing with dolphins for any kid is a dream come true!
After a brief orientation by our dolphin experts, the kids are then guided into the shallow water to interact with the dolphins. The shallow pool is safe, and the kids are closely supervised. Parents are allowed to accompany children to the poolside observation area but cannot get in the water or interact with the dolphins with their children.
In the water, the kids can interact with the dolphins at their leisure. The kids are given as much swim time with the dolphins as possible, making this experience worth every penny. They can play, hug, touch, and sing with the dolphins. And, they are even given a chance to feed the dolphins. As they get to know the dolphins, they will surely fall in love and talk about the experience for years to come.
This program lasts approximately 30 minutes with a brief 10-minute orientation before spending the rest of the time in the water with the dolphins. Because we keep our group numbers small, we are able to provide as much one-on-one interaction with the dolphins as possible.
Both educational and interactive, our kids program is full of excitement and adventure! Does your young child have a love of the ocean and a desire to swim with dolphins? Call today to make your reservation, and make your kid's dream of meeting a dolphin friend come true!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to reserve in advance?
We have a limited number of participants during our dolphin activities, so in order to assure your place we suggest your reservation in advance, especially if you plan to visit us during the high vacation season.
May I bring a camera or video camera to take pictures?
Cameras are not allowed into the pools or observation areas for your safety, for the dolphins safety and the safety of the equipment but professional photos will be available for purchase after your experience.
Can I wear Sunscreen? (SPF)
While we recommend you wear sunscreen, it must be biodegradable for the protection of our dolphins and sea lions. Any other sunscreen must be showered off before entering the dolphin area. Our gift shops sell biodegradable sunscreen.
Can I wear jewelry?
We recommend you remove all jewelry, including wedding rings, ear rings, and piercings, before coming to the dolphin center. Although we provide an area to secure your personal belongings, it is easy to drop, lose or misplace jewelry, so we recommend you to leave your jewelry and small items secured in your accommodation’s safe or front desk safe.
Why do we limit the number of sessions for people to interact with dolphins?
At Cabo Dolphins, the animals' health and welfare are of primary importance. The sessions are limited to ensure an enjoyable schedule including a variety of activities for the dolphins. The dolphins spend only a combined total of less than two hours each day voluntarily interacting with the public. The rest of the day is allocated to the dolphins' private time, valuable training time, as well as play and social interaction.
How safe are Interactive Programs?
In-water-interactive programs have a remarkable, well-established record of dolphin and human safety. The health and safety records of these innovative programs have been studied, analyzed, and restudied for over 20 years, each time reaffirming their exemplary achievements.
Can I do any of the dolphin programs if I am pregnant?
For your personal safety and the well being of your unborn child we do not allow pregnant women to participate in our dolphin and sea lion programs.
