DOLPHINS IN THE WILD

This is the ultimate ecological expedition in Mazatlan! As with our whale watching tour during whale season, this exciting eco tour in Mazatlan not only offers you a chance to see wild dolphins, but also the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with them in their natural hábitat! Also this expedition allows you to delve into the real world of cetacean research and conservation - a true ecotour like no other! In addition, you'll get to practice snorkeling in some of the best spots around Deer Island and Bird Island, amazing spots most never get to see!

Your tour is guided by marine scientists and expert naturalists from Mazatlan Mexico - nobody knows as much about the local marine life in Mazatlan as these guys. During your tour, they'll be collecting information about the ecology and behavior of the dolphins and taking photographs of the dolphins' dorsal fins for individual identification, giving you real hands-on experience in dolphin conservation and research techniques!  

In addition to the regular small group adventure, we also offer this excursion as an exclusive PRIVATE tour, just for you and your friends or family.  Enjoy a great personal experience you will never forget!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: Are there bathrooms on board?
A:
There are no bathrooms on these small boats!  Make sure to go before you get on the boat. There are restrooms at the marina or you can go swimming!

Q: Is there shade?
A:
Yes, the boats have a canopy for your comfort.

Q: What kind of boats will you use?
A:
We have a 10-passenger and an 18-passenger boat.  It will depend on the group size that day which boat we use.

Kids:  Ages 6 and up.  Kids prices apply to ages 6-11, and they can only ride in the boat but not swim.  Must be at least 12 years old to swim with the dolphins.  Any child under 18 must swim with an adult in the water.

Restrictions:  To be able to do the swim with wild dolphins sessions you should:
-Be 12 or older. Under 18 should be accompanied by an adult in the water.

Notes: This tour has a 4 adult passengers minimum to depart.  Please check availability if your party is less than 4 people. Dolphin and other marine fauna sightings are not guaranteed. These are free ranging animals that move long distances, however our experienced crew of marine scientists and surveyors know their whereabouts and usually we have an above 85% encounter rate. Close underwater encounters are mostly brief and cannot be guaranteed either, usually it depends mostly on your swimming skills, but in good weather conditions we usually have a 65% underwater encounter rate of success. We do not swim with dolphin groups that include calves or that show evasive behavior, this is to minimize our impact and help studying and preserving these animals and their habitat. We do not feed, harass or touch the dolphins at any time. Usually they also want to meet us and they'll stick around at their own schedule!
