Frolic with Roatan’s Bottlenose Dolphins
Have you ever dreamed of a dolphin encounter - swimming, snorkeling, or diving with dolphins? In Roatan, you can do all of these things!
Swimming and interacting with dolphins is a very popular activity the world over and understandably so. Regarded as one of Earth’s most intelligent animals, dolphins are incredibly social, and their playfulness and friendliness have a certain charisma that draws people to them.
When you stay at CoCo View Resort, we can arrange for an off-site dolphin encounter at the Roatan Institute for Marine Science (RIMS), a facility built to study and preserve the island’s marine ecosystem, where you can meet and swim with these engaging animals.
Different Kinds of Encounters
During your stay in Roatan, ask our resort staff about the various dolphin tours and encounters available to you!
- Roatan Dolphin Encounter: Make a new friend as you touch, kiss, and play with a dolphin. A trained naturalist will introduce you to a resident dolphin, describing its characteristics, anatomy, and behaviours.
- Dolphin Snorkel: Experience a dolphin encounter like no other as you play with dolphins at the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences. During this unstructured encounter with Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins, the naturally curious dolphins are free to interact with you as they choose.
- Dolphin Dive: Scuba dive in the open ocean with the friendliest dolphins in the Caribbean. 2-3 dolphins will visit you on the sandy bottom of the ocean floor, frolicking and playing with you on their own terms before returning home to RIMS.
- Trainer for a Day: Leave CoCo View Resort for the day to go behind the scenes - spending the entire day learning about dolphins, interacting with them, and working one-on-one with them to initiate trained behaviours.
