Default Dolphin Swim

I am trying to find out if you can book the Dolphin Swim on the Carnival Triumph sailing June 05, 2005 from Norfolk, VA. I know you can book the encounter when you get on board but what about the swim. Do you have to book that independently? Any help with this will be appreciated.

Default Re: Dolphin Swim

You can book directly.....and you should book MONTHS in advance...with:


There are a couple of choices. The ROYAL swim is with a group of 6-9 people and a pair of dolphins. The DOLPHIN ENCOUNTER is a bunch of people [up to 30] standing on a raft that sinks in the water to knee height. You then watch the ROYAL swim people play with the dolphins. The dolphins come over and will swim close to you but there isn't as much contact as in the ROYAL swim. Of course there is a BIG difference in price.

There is also a SEA LION SWIM which gives a hands on swim with some sea lions.

Good Luck....it is GREAT to 'swim with 'da fishes!'

I booked through dolphin discovery. They do not even charge your credit card until you get there. It was the best experience ever!

The dolphin swim sounds like alot of fun. My kids are excited about this, but I wonder how the 6 year old will feel when he's in the water with the dolphin. Will he be afraid? If anyone has ever had a child who's around the same age do the dolphin swim, please let me know how it went.
