If you are interested in marine mammals and animal behavior, youll really enjoy our Cabo Dolphin Trainer for a Day Program while visiting Cabo San Lucas. Training aquatic mammals, such as Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins is a once in a lifetime experience. When vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, be sure to participate in the most entertaining and immersive activity in Los Cabos, the Cabo Dolphin Trainer for a Day Program.
Located near the Cabo Marina on Bahia Cabo San Lucas, our modern Cabo Dolphin Training Compound was specially-designed for the training of these intelligent and gentle creatures to interact with the public. In addition to our educational lagoon habitat, our facility has a state-of-the-art galley, veterinary facilities, dolphin nursery, interactive classrooms, and video and photo development labs. Youll have the opportunity to interact with the Bottlenose Dolphins in our facility. Youll even be able to enter pool to swim with these magnificent animals. During this comprehensive program, youll learn about feeding and care of marine mammals. Youll also be taught training methods used by the professional animal trainers at our facility to influence the behavior of these incredibly brilliant creatures. If you have a domestic dog or cat at home, you can adapt and apply these training techniques to train your house pet.
The Cabo Dolphin Trainer for a Day Program is restricted to two groups of two participants every day. By participating in this program, your kids may just be inspired to become a marine biologist. This amazing day includes a tasty lunch, use of a training uniform, a diploma, and digital keepsakes (photos and a video).
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 for your safety, for the dolphins safety and the safety of the equipment but professional photos will be available for purchase after your experience.
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.
Q: Where is the Dolphin Center located?
A: In the heart of Marina Cabo San Lucas, 5 minutes walk from the cruise ship pier, close to the Mexican Flea Market and a 10 minute stroll from downtown Los Cabos.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Cabo Dolphin Trainer for a Day is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
