A different philosophy

At Dolphin Academy, we are proud to be one of the only facilities in the world that works with trained dolphins in the open sea. The dolphins reside on the premises of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium in four primary lagoons interconnected by secondary basins and canals wallpaper. The lagoons are in contact with the ocean, allowing a constant flow of fresh seawater and numerous fish and invertebrate species.

Fabuloso Curacao dolphins El encuentro con los delfines en Curacao fue espectacularmente estupendo. Guardábamos el recuerdo de nuestro primer encuentro con estos animales maravillosos en Roatán en el Anthony's Key Resort hace un tiempo y este encuentro fue genial por la calidez de los instructores, la manera de interactuar, en fin, una serie de detalles que permitieron una experiencia extraordinaria para repetirla las veces que Dios lo permita.

Kan echt niet meer in deze tijd. Dierenmishandeling. Wat zitten de zeedieren in belachelijk kleine bassins. Dat kan echt niet meer. De dolfijnen vertonen allemaal stresssymptomen en zitten onder de krassen. Ze kunnen geen natuur gedrag vertonen.

Amazing Experience I was totally unsure of what to expect by this adventure but it Totally exceeded expectations. These creatures are magical. And to be able to touch and communicate with them blew my mind.

‘Must do’ if you like animals Had a wonderful time watching the trainers feed the dolphins, people snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins and meet them in the water myself finally.

Amazing experience We went snorkeling: something you shouldn’t skip when visiting the island! Friendly, professional guidance from the trainers, great interaction -quality time- with the Dolphins and a little behind the scenes tour that explains how beautiful the work is that the people of Dolphin academy are doing! Highly recommend 😎🐬
