If you’re expecting just a handful of dolphins in the area, then get ready to have a big dolphin watching surprise. More than 15 dolphins swim freely in the bay—too many to count, in fact!

You can touch them if they are reachable and if you’re given consent by the tour guide.
The majestic creatures jump, twist, glide and tumble gracefully along the bay so prepare to be dazzled by the amount of happiness these mammals bring to you.
