Diving with Dolphins
Can anybody do an introductory dive with the dolphins?
If you are a confident swimmer between the ages of 8 to 88 years old, you can participate in this special activity. You don’t have to have any previous experience with diving.
Is equipment provided?
Full scuba equipment including air tanks is provided.
How long is the session?
Participants go into the water with their own personal instructor. The session lasts for one hour. Half an hour is devoted to fitting wetsuits and fins, signing the medical statement and afterwards a briefing. Once the briefing is completed, you will meet your instructor who will fit you with the scuba gear. Half an hour is spent in the water.
How deep will I dive?
You will descend to a maximum depth of 6 meters, and see the dolphins as well as a big variety of fish and corals.
What will the dolphins be doing?
During our visit with the dolphins in the water, we will be observing them in their natural habitat, hunting, playing, mating and teaching the younger ones. When a dolphin approaches, it does so of its own free will. We respect this approach by not touching, chasing or feeding them.
Are there any limitations to participating in the activity?
For your own safety, it is important that we will be notified if you are suffering from the following: ear problems, respiratory problems (e.g. asthma, sinus and bronchitis), heart problems, high/low blood pressure, epilepsy, diabetes or claustrophobia. If you have had recent surgery or illness, have open wounds, take medication, or suffer from other medical problems or limitations we should be notified. Pregnant women are not allowed to dive.
Can I use an underwater camera during the activity?
The dolphins and their well being have first priority; therefore the only persons that enter the water with a camera is an employee of the Dolphin Reef photography department who has training, knowledge about the behavioral patterns of the dolphins and who has the ability to anticipate behavior changes. Our photographers never use a flash and they receive regular updates and instructions in order to adapt their approach according to the current situation in the water. Therefore we are sorry, but a personal camera in the water is not allowed!
A child under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21.
Each participant is required to sign a medical declaration at the site before participating in the activity. All participants under the age of 18 need the medical and liability declaration to be signed by a parent/guardian. To view the medical statement click here.
