Dolphin Open Water Snorkel (Free dive)



*Includes free admission Curacao Sea Aquarium


Snorkel with the dolphins in the open ocean. The dolphins will leave their lagoon and join you at sea. They dive alongside you while you gently pet and interact with them underwater. 

Additionally, you can also give them some hand signals to which they respond. 

Because of the fact it is in the open sea you need to be a strong snorkeler who can snorkel to the depth. You also must be able to hold your breath for about 30 seconds. 

Your time in the water is approximately 30 minutes. We will start with a short swim in the natural lagoon before we are entering the sea. The whole experience will be about 1,5 hour.

**Local rate available, please contact Dolphin Academy**

**For reservations please contact Dolphin Academy**




Underwater camera is allowed
