Q: Do I need to reserve in advance?

A: 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.

Q: May I bring a camera or video camera to take pictures?

A: Cameras are not allowed into the pools or observation areas.

Q: Can I wear Sunscreen? (SPF)

A: 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.

Q: Can I wear jewelry?

A: 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.

Q: Why do we limit the number of sessions for people to interact with dolphins?

A: 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.

Q: How safe are Interactive Programs?

A: 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.

Q: Can I make a Dolphin sick if I participate in a swim program?

A: Since the initiation of in-water marine mammal interactive programs in 1985, there has not been one instance of disease transmission between humans and dolphins reported at any of the facilities that offer "swim with the dolphin" programs.

Q: Can I do any of the dolphin programs if I am pregnant?

A: 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.
