Dolphins Encounter

What is the dolphin encounter?

This is a NEW ACTIVITY that brings the wonderful world of dolphins closer to anyone who wants to know about the lives and biology of these animals, alongside our biologists and trainers.

The aim of the activity is to bring these wonderful creatures, dolphins, closer to visitors, informing about them and raising awareness. We always offer the encounter in Spanish and/or English. Peculiarities of their behaviour and details are mentioned that can’t be found in books.

A very exclusive activity. In small groups.

It’s an unforgettable experience!

Where is the activity held?
The encounter is held in the dolphin area with the aid of the dolphins; training techniques are explained, and the participant can do some of the exercises with the dolphins. They will kindly come closer so that we can see all of the details that their caretakers are describing to us. Veterinary care is explained, as well as biological aspects such as the difference between a male and a female, how they sleep, how they recognise each other… and many other interesting things about dolphins’ lives. The whole encounter is very interactive and entertaining.

Educational Offers

Come get to know us!

The Department of Environmental Educationcarries out a special program of activities aimed especially at schools. Through encountering animals, the idea is to favour learning and create experiences to stimulate young learners to have respect for the environment and to commit to preserving biodiversity.

Nearly 15,000 school students participate in the Marineland educational project annually. The activities are adapted to the different school levels: Nursery school, primary, secondary, and college preparatory. The youngest children who participate in educational program activities are 3 years old. These children work on a specific animal previously in school.

Teachers call it a research project or workshop, in which parents are also involved. After several weeks of work at school, the children go to Marineland and the instructors help them to supplement their work by answering their questions.
