You’ve seen them in movies, documentaries, or online videos. At Resorts World Sentosa’s Dolphin Island, you can finally interact with dolphins with the help of professional trainers. Discover the intelligence of these fabulous creatures. Learn their habitat, diet, anatomy, and even migratory patterns. For instance, did you know that a dolphin can eat up to 15 kilos (33 pounds) of fish, squid, and crustaceans each day?
Dolphin Island offers up to five various programs that allow you to engage with these fascinating mammals up close. How do you choose the right session for you and your friends or loved ones with so many options? Through this handy guide, we’ll share with you how each dolphin interaction is different and for which type of visitors this unforgettable experience is suited best.
Not keen on getting wet? Get up close and personal without entering the water at the Dolphin Encounter. Touch curious dolphins, splash water, and pose for a photo with these smart animals. Also, learn interesting dolphin facts and how to protect these joyful sea creatures. The family-friendly Dolphin Encounter is suitable for guests of all ages, including children under four years of age.
Interact with dolphins in shallow waters at Dolphin Discovery. Enjoy a close interaction with them as you observe and understand their behavior. Meet and greet with inquisitive dolphins and experience their playful nature. Dolphin Discovery is one of Dolphin Island’s most popular programs, even for non-swimmers. Wetsuits and flotation devices are available.
Suppose you have accompanying friends and family members on your Dolphin Discovery who’d rather watch from the sidelines. In that case, they can enjoy the view as a Dolphin Observer. For 20 SGD per person, your friends and loved ones can relax and join the fun from underneath the shade. They don’t need to step into the waist-deep water. And don’t worry, Dolphin Island’s hosts will be more than happy to answer observer questions.
Are you ready for the ride of a lifetime? On your Dolphin Adventure, establish a tight bond with these graceful marine mammals. For 130 SGD per person, live the euphoria that comes from a dolphin propelling you across the lagoon on a bodyboard. The Dolphin Adventure is suitable for proficient swimmers. Wetsuits and flotation devices are available.
Immerse yourself underwater and watch beautiful dolphins from a fish’s point of view. Dolphin Trek is a one-of-a-kind experience: walk on the lagoon floor and breathe in a special helmet as friendly dolphins swim towards you. No swimming or diving experience is needed. Guests must be at least 15 years of age to participate.
