Dolphin Island

Do you want to find out where in Singapore you can interact with a beautiful dolphin such as this one? This article has the answer!

Dolphins are the second most intelligent species of mammals on the planet, with intelligence quotient (IQ) levels of a seven- to nine-year-old child. We love them for their cheeky, curious nature and gently curved mouths that make them look like they’re smiling all the time.

Wouldn’t it be a dream come true for your whole family to swim with these beautiful mammals, learn about them, and perhaps even give them a kiss and a cuddle?

Your dream may just turn to reality because there is a place right here in Singapore that gives you and your kids the privilege of experiencing an up-close and unforgettable experience with dolphins and enjoying great family bonding in the process.

They also recently welcomed a dolphin calf to their family. This playful little girl needs a name, and you can find out how you and your kids can help give her a name later on in this article.

This world-class attraction offers six dolphin interaction programmes that are fun, and most importantly, educational, especially for your little ones.

If you or your kids don’t swim, then this programme is ideal for you. All you need to do is stand in waist-deep water in the lagoon for an astonishing experience.

You will be paired up with one of the trainers who will take you to meet your dolphin “date.” You and your kids will be taught a few basic hand signals by the trainer, and learn about dolphin behaviours as well as how the trainers provide enrichment for the friendly dolphin, from fish treats to rub-downs!
