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. Today's adventure begins with a water transfer from SeaDream's anchorage at Virgin Gorda to the neighboring island of Tortola. Arriving at the pier in Road Town, transfer by motor transport for the short drive to Prospect Reef Resort - the home of the marine mammal facility offering human-dolphin interaction programs. 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 Virgin Gorda and SeaDream.
