What does a Dolphin Encounter look like

After instructions, you enter the water. You stand on a sturdy platform at the edge of the lagoon. You are about waist deep in water. Then, per group (max. 6 people) the dolphin comes to meet and show the first tricks; meanwhile the instructor (one instructor in each group) gives all kinds of explanations about the dolphin. All instructors speak English.
After some explanation, you then get to do the tricks with the dolphin yourself. Let the dolphin splash or sing and, of course, you will also get a kiss from the dolphin! Meanwhile, a professional photographer will take photos of your Dolphin Encounter, which you can purchase in Photoshop afterwards. In total, you are in the water with the dolphin for about 20 minutes. A wonderful activity if you really want to quietly admire a dolphin up close, enjoy first rate the various tricks the instructor can do with the dolphin and if you want to learn more about dolphins.
Afterwards, you can walk around the Sea Aquarium or check out your photos with the dolphin at the Photoshop.
