Tour Summary

You've packed your bikini and your passport. You've read all about the beautiful British Island of Tortola. Gorgeous beaches- check! Powdery sand- check! Shopping and plenty of historic sites- check! Now, what do you want to do in those magnificent blue waters while you visit this volcanic island?

There is always snorkeling, diving and surfing...but you want more. You want something to dream about when you go home, something beyond the normal. You want an adventure worth talking about at the water cooler. You want the Dolphin Royal Swim. Not only will you swim with the dolphins, but you will interact with them.

Think about it- a ferry picking you up and whisking you over those crystal waters to a dolphin sanctuary. The Dolphin Discovery of Tortola makes it possible to see these friendly mammals in their natural habitat. Blue waters surrounded by high, lush mountains are the setting for your play date with the dolphins.

You’ll enjoy a wide variety of activities throughout the duration of your tour. Hugs, kisses, handshakes, and practice with hand targets are just a few of the interactions you can anticipate to experience. However, there is far more in store for you on this particular tour. Some of our most famous activities include the foot push and the dorsal tow. The foot push is a high intensity activity in which participants have one dolphins pushing them forward on each foot until they reach an upright position. For the next part of your adventure, grab onto a sleek dorsal fin and go! Your new friends will tow you along, showing your their favorite spots. Let the waters bubble down your sides as you slide through the water as if one with the dolphins.
