The Deep Water Swim at Dolphin Cay

A one-of-a-kind, educational, water adventure with bottlenose dolphins. You will have the opportunity to learn from our Dolphin Behaviorists as you swim alongside these amazing marine mammals in the crystal clear water of their environment. Watch as they tumble, tease and exhibit underwater, acrobatic skills through your personal snorkel and mask. Dolphin Cay is a world renowned dolphin and sea lion habitat that opened in 2006 in time to provide a safe haven for 17 stranded dolphins and 10 sea lions whose home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
