For the adventure-hungry kids over ten years old, accompanied by an adult, why not go that one step further and try an Atlantis Dive Explorer.
Next head to Dolphin Bay, where you will be offered a range of one-of-a-kind dolphin experiences, from playing to scuba diving and swimming with dolphins. You cannot miss Dolphin Encounter, a marine mammal experience on everyone’s wish list at Dolphin Bay, where both swimmers and non-swimmers can enjoy the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the dolphins.
