Dolphin Encounter is an unique experience directed to know and learn to respect this great marine mammal. It consists of a program of educational, as well as enjoyable, interaction meticulously prepared by the Department of Marine Mammals of Selwo Marina with three key objectives: to discover, to learn and to entertain. Dolphin Encounter is aimed to reduced groups, always joined by instructors, and takes place daily.
The programme is performed in the pool of interaction with dolphins of the dolphinarium, where the participants are placed on a semi submerged walkway, specially designed to know and to be closer than ever to this intelligent marine mammal. The participants, always joined by expert instructors, will learn the most relevant characteristics of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops troncatus), which make them a unique species among the Planet's mammals: characteristics such as their intelligence, their communication capacity, their physical particularities or the great emotional link they have with their keepers.
Joining Selwo Marina Dolphin Encounter, through the Fundación Parques Reunidos, visitors contribute to the founding of the Preservation Project of the Monk Seal in Mauritania, the most threatened marine mammal of the Planet, contributing to the betterment of the preservation state of this colony, and ensuring its protection and its habitat.
