Since kids have always been fascinated by dolphins and our Pacific Bottlenose dolphin family is always ready to play with new friends, we've developed Dolphin Kids. Designed to provide rewarding dolphin interaction to children ages 4 to 9, Dolphin Kids will give your young child a chance to get closer to dolphins than he or she ever imagined.
Because Dolphins are highly intelligent and gentle creatures, they are ideally suited to provide children with their first close encounter with a marine mammal. Our "kids only" adventure provides a safe environment where children can interact and play with our friendly dolphins in an environment specifically designed with their needs in mind.
This fun, interactive and informative program begins poolside with an introduction to our dolphin family: Toulouse, Merian, Monet, Ende, Frida, Renoir and Dali. Following their introduction, kids will spend time interacting with and petting the dolphins, under the supervision of an experienced trainer, from a shallow shelf in our custom designed pool.
Group sizes are limited so each child will have the chance to pet, hug, and kiss the dolphins. The program ends with the dolphins showing off their breathtaking jumps for the children.
The Dolphin Kids program is for children ages 4 to 9 only. Parents may observe their children from the poolside free of charge, but will not be allowed to interact with the dolphins.
To keep distractions to a minimum for both kids and dolphins, photographic equipment is not allowed. However, a team of specially trained photographers will be on hand to commemorate your child's special moment. Photos, souvenirs, food and beverages are available for purchase at the Dolphin Center.
The Dolphin Center has been featured on cable networks, including the Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel, BBC, MTV and CNN among many others, which means that groups fill up quickly and it is critical make reservations well before you visit Cabo San Lucas.
Whether your child is fascinated by dolphins or just looking for a unique adventure, the Dolphin Kids program at the Cabo Dolphin Center will provide your child with an exciting and educational experience that he or she will cherish for years to come.
Do I need to reserve in advance?
We have a limited number of participants during our dolphin activities, so in order to assure your place we suggest your reservation in advance, especially if you plan to visit us during the high vacation season.
May I bring a camera or video camera to take pictures?
Cameras are not allowed into the pools or observation areas for your safety, for the dolphins safety and the safety of the equipment but professional photos will be available for purchase after your experience.
Can I wear Sunscreen? (SPF)
While we recommend you wear sunscreen, it must be biodegradable for the protection of our dolphins and sea lions. Any other sunscreen must be showered off before entering the dolphin area. Our gift shops sell biodegradable sunscreen.
Can I wear jewelry?
We recommend you remove all jewelry, including wedding rings, ear rings, and piercings, before coming to the dolphin center. Although we provide an area to secure your personal belongings, it is easy to drop, lose or misplace jewelry, so we recommend you to leave your jewelry and small items secured in your accommodation’s safe or front desk safe.
Why do we limit the number of sessions for people to interact with dolphins?
At Cabo Dolphins, the animals' health and welfare are of primary importance. The sessions are limited to ensure an enjoyable schedule including a variety of activities for the dolphins. The dolphins spend only a combined total of less than two hours each day voluntarily interacting with the public. The rest of the day is allocated to the dolphins' private time, valuable training time, as well as play and social interaction.
How safe are Interactive Programs?
In-water-interactive programs have a remarkable, well-established record of dolphin and human safety. The health and safety records of these innovative programs have been studied, analyzed, and restudied for over 20 years, each time reaffirming their exemplary achievements.
Can I do any of the dolphin programs if I am pregnant?
For your personal safety and the well being of your unborn child we do not allow pregnant women to participate in our dolphin and sea lion programs.
How many kids participate in each program?
We take a maximum of 6 kids per program

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Cabo Dolphin Kids is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
