Join us for an amazing journey into the underwater world to meet and swim with dolphins in their natural habitat! Take part in our dolphin ecology project and help our team of marine scientists search, follow, and document dolphin pods along the coast of Mazatlán.
Experienced marine biologists, ecologists, and naturalists will guide this expedition with outstanding commentary about the surrounding marine ecosystems. They will share real-time insights into the lives of dolphins, while also collecting scientific data for current research and conservation projects.
During our dolphin encounters, the crew will take photographs of the natural markings found on the dolphins dorsal fins for individual identification, collect sighting data, and deploy hydrophones to record dolphin sounds, giving you a hands-on experience seeing real-life dolphin research techniques.
Once data has been collected, and dependent on sea conditions and the types of dolphin groups, we will get in the water to swim with the dolphins! These are wild dolphins, they are not confined or trained, so we follow their agenda, sometimes they are curious and seek interactions, other times not so much. That being said, the mere fact of being in the water with the dolphins and watching them swim gracefully under the blue ocean is a once in a lifetime experience!
On our way to shore or while cruising Mazatlán Bay, there is always a good chance of close encounters with other fascinating marine life like sea turtles, sea lions, manta rays, and a great diversity of marine and coastal birds. Plus, lets not forget that we will visit some of the greatest locations at Venados and Pájaros Islands for some of the best snorkeling around, all in one trip!
