This is one of those very few places in the world where you will get the opportunity to spend time closely with the very intelligent animal- dolphins. You can play, kiss, hug and even swim with these cute creatures in waist to chest high water level.

The whole session is divided into two parts.

  • First part is when you are taught about these creatures and how to handle them.
  • Second and the more interesting part is where you are allowed to interact with them in their natural habitat.

Safety is not to be worried about as you will have guides along with you. Children find this extremely fun.

The park was set up in the year 1969. Apart from the dolphin interaction session, they also have other shows such as the sea lion show, dolphin shows, bird show, magic show, reptile show, underwater scuba demonstration, shark and turtle feeding and much more.
