Wanna Swim with the Dolphins? Hell Yeah!

We’ve been wanting to swim with the dolphins for years, but being from Australia its not really a viable option unless you have $700 bucks to throw around (not including photos). So we looked into it in Puerto Vallarta- Mexico & found out its an amazing affordable experience for the whole family, including our 2yr old!

We had three dolphin companies to choose from, all similar in price . In the end we chose Aquaventuras Park as they have a waterpark too & gave us a 2 for 1 deal.

We ended up paying $158 which included use of the waterpark, our 45 min in the water Dolphin Encounter + 2 meals.

Got a good push.. much faster then expected!

We weren’t allowed to take our own photos so we paid $100 for 73 photos, which comes to roughly 1.30 a pic. Quite pricey.. but you can buy as little or as many as you like.

What the Dolphin Encounter included was: lots of information, a kiss, cheek kiss, dolphin ride, boogy board push, reach up high for him to touch, snorkels to watch him spin & swim under water, free play where you splash him & he splashes you back, handshake, move your fingers & he whistles like a bird, move your fists & he sounds like a motorbike.

None of us can fault the actual Dolphin experience.. except the grumpy photographer.

As for the water park its quite run down, the cement is cracking everywhere, the paint is peeling, & a worker was actually welding a pole to one of the slides that we went down!

There was a good kids area that was shallow enough for our 2yr old to enjoy, a great selection of slides & rubber rings to borrow. And the food was fantastic! So all in all it was a perfectly memorable day.
