Swim with Dolphins - Royal Swim - Puerto Vallarta


Cancellation Policy

This experience cannot be cancelled, amended or rescheduled.

Your Experience

We offer you this unforgettable experience in a day filled with fun for your entire family.

Our dolphins will conquer your heart before you even get in the water as you watch them swimming along and showing off all their tricks.

The Royal Swim program includes the famous foot push, where two dolphins will push you up the water surface by your feet. Following the foot push, you will hold on to the dolphin’s dorsal fin where they will pull you across the water on the famous dorsal tow. Our friendly dolphins will also give you a handshake with their fins, give you a peck on the cheek, and enjoy some play time with you.

The dolphinarium is located inside Aquaventuras Park Vallarta, one of Vallarta’s most popular locations. The dolphin program includes the Aquaventuras Park admission where you can enjoy 10 water slides, a fresh ride along the river, a kid’s playground and swimming pool area all in a gorgeous, natural environment.
