The Dolphin Encounter

For those participating on this adventure, it will likely be the experience of a lifetime; allowing you the opportunity to get up and close to these amazing and intelligent aquatic mammals. Your adventure begins with a boat ride from SeaDream’s anchorage at Jost van Dyke to the neighboring island of Tortola. Arriving at the pier, a very short drive will take you to the human-dolphin interaction location. Begin with an educational briefing and orientation that outlines important information regarding dolphin behavior and anatomy. While you sit and listen to this interesting presentation, the anticipation builds for the actual encounter to follow. Then it’s on to the platform pools to take turns entering the water and enjoying the 20-30 minute interaction involving swimming, hand signals and one-on-one contact with the dolphins. The trainers will help you understand the behaviors of the dolphins and assist you in maximizing your own personal experience. You’re sure to be both moved and revitalized as you reflect on your encounter en route back to Jost van Dyke and SeaDream. Do bring your credit card or cash (US Dollar), as you will have the opportunity to purchase various photos and DVD souvenirs of your thrilling experience with the photogenic dolphins.
