In this unique program the dolphins will meet the divers outside their lagoon in the open ocean and dive with them in the environment of one of the most beautiful coral reefs of Curaçao. Here the divers can enjoy the company of the dolphins in an unstructured program where the dolphins will play with fish, the divers and each other.

This program offers a unique opportunity for divers to observe and learn about these animals in the open ocean. The Dolphin Academy is the third dolphin facility in the entire world which offers an Open Water Dolphin Dive program. Our dolphins are trained to go outside and enjoy themselves in the open ocean. Since our dolphins are territorial animals, this program actually increases their territory.

Please note that the Dolphin Scuba Encounter is offered in partnership with Ocean Encounters, a PADI 5 Star Gold Palm IDC & National Geographic Dive Center. 

Reservations for this experience can only be made by contacting Ocean Encounters directly.
