Dolphins are some of the ocean’s most intelligent and incredible animals. Elegant, agile, and entertaining — with personalities all their own — these marine mammals are a true joy to be around. For many kids and adults, meeting dolphins firsthand is a dream never realized. With our Dolphin Trainer for a Day experience here at Vallarta Adventures, you get the chance to make that dream a reality.
Join our trainers for a magical day at our Dolphin Center in Nuevo Vallarta, where you’ll get a chance to be a dolphin trainer for a day yourself. We’ll show you the ins and outs of daily dolphin care, as well as how to communicate with dolphins and teach them tricks.
