Puerto Vallarta-based Vallarta Adventures and the Yucatan’s
Xcaret Eco Theme Park have joined forces to open a new Dolphin
Adventure facility in the Cabo San Lucas Marina. The center’s
educational programs offer guests once-in-a-lifetime opportunities
to interact face to face with Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins.
“This dolphin center will be one of the most beautiful dolphin
facilities anywhere,” noted Ricardo Farkas, general director of
Vallarta Adventures. “It was designed by world-renowned architect
Enrique Norten, and will be a conversion between Xcaret Park in
Cancun and Vallarta Adventures.”
He added, “The center also has all of the technological advances
for marine life support, making it one of the best worldwide.”
The “Swim With Dolphins” program allows participants to interact
with Vallarta Adventures’ family of Pacific Bottlenose dolphins.
Non-swimmers can also get into the fun with the “Dolphin Encounter”
adventure where they can enter waist-deep water to examine, stroke
and even kiss a dolphin.
The ultimate dolphin option, “Trainer for a Day,” lets guests learn
about dolphins while working with the facility’s trainers. The
company’s newest program, “Dolphin Kids,” was developed especially
for smaller children so that they, too, may have contact with these
playful and gentle mammals in a safe, fun environment.
Through both the educational and interactive portions of Vallarta
Adventures’ Dolphin Adventure, guests gain a deeper understanding
of dolphins and enjoy a special closeness with the highly
intelligent and amazing creatures.
