Excursion Description

Have the “Experience of a Lifetime” with dolphins in their natural habitat. 

You’ll be whisked away in a Zodiac raft to the open ocean where pods of spinner dolphins gather during the day before their nocturnal feeding schedule. 

Your Zodiac will approach cautiously, and then suddenly, the dolphins are amazingly close to your raft. 

Suit up into your mask and fins, and gently slip over the side. 

Having been briefed on proper protocol, you gently float in the vicinity of the dolphin pod. 

You’ll be mesmerized as these amazing mammals glide along beneath you. 

Captain Zodiac follows NOAA recommendations for safe encounters with marine mammals.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
