Dolphin Discovery is well known for being the #1 dolphin company in the world, providing guests with the experience of a lifetime interacting with dolphins, manatees and sea lions. Every day is a fun day at Dolphin Discovery, but what many may not know is that we take very seriously our commitment to being a socially responsible company.
Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos opened in February 2011 and in this short time has enjoyed growing and being part of some important moments in the lives of our guests. The beautiful natural environment has set the scene for marriage proposals, 15 year birthday celebrations (“quincenaras” are one of the most important life events in Mexico) and has welcomed a wide variety of celebrities and artists.
School group visits Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos
The most satisfying moments for our team have been celebrated with the local community. Our school outreach program teaches children of all ages about marine mammals and the preservation of the eco-system. We invite the children to create art from recycled materials and to share the message about the importance of conservation and protection of the planet.
Dolphin Discovery team “Keeping the highway clean” in Cabo
The Dolphin Discovery team believes very strongly in actively participating in efforts to clean up our local environment. From beach clean-up days to projects to clean-up highways and parks, Team Dolphin is always there, gloves and garbage bags in hand to do our part in making the world a little brighter. We encourage all our guests to reduce, re-use and recycle and to think about the future of our planet.
Instituto Onirica visits Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos
Every month Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos invites families of limited resources and differently-abled people to join us to swim with dolphins. It is an honor and a privilege to share this experience with our special guests, their smiles are our reward. Since opening, Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos has donated 4795 dolphin swims to the community and we are excited to see that number grow as we invite more and more friends from the community each month.
Dolphin Discovery would like to thank the community of Los Cabos for welcoming us so warmly, we are grateful for all the new friends we have made and look forward to doing all we can to give something back. Education, conservation efforts and community outreach will bring us together and make our community stronger, not only in Cabo but in all our Dolphin Discovery locations.
Dolphin Discovery is thrilled to bring you our newest experience in Cabo San Lucas, “Camel Quest”! We’re getting out of the water and into the desert on this fun-filled adventure. Join us in Wild Canyon Park in Los Cabos for a totally unique Cabo tour. You’ll learn all about camels and take a trek down the old river bed of the canyon. Along the way you’ll be put to the test in “Survivor” style challenges like the “Sure Shot” and “Tossin’ Camels”, collecting stamps at each completed challenge to win a prize at the end of your journey (and claim bragging rights over your friends of course!) You’ll enjoy feeding the camels and of course feeding yourself after your exertions at the “Lion’s Den Restaurant” in the park.
Your adventure takes place in the spectacular “El Tule Canyon”, situated in the Baja desert with a lush oasis at the bottom to keep the vegetation green and gorgeous views of the Sea of Cortez. If you are staying in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo or along the Tourist Corridor, it’s a quick 20 minute drive in our air conditioned van, enjoying the sites of the region. Space on this tour is very limited, we highly recommend booking in advance. This is a fantastic family adventure, kids as young as 4 will enjoy “Camel Quest”!
Camel Fun Facts!
1. Camels can survive up to 2 months without water
2. Camels have straight spines, despite the appearance of their humps.
3. A camel’s thin legs can carry not only its body weight, but up to 1000 lbs of cargo!
4. Average life expectancy of a camel is 40 to 50 years.
5. There are 17 million camels worldwide.
6. Camels can weigh between 250 and 680 kgs and can be up to 2 meters tall.
7. The hump of a camel is full of fat, not water. If a camel doesn’t eat, its hump will shrink. Baby camels are not born with humps, they only grow after they begin to eat solid food.
8. Camels have a double row of long, curly eyelashes to keep out the blowing sand of the desert.
Join Dolphin Discovery in Los Cabos for Camel Quest and learn so much more about these amazing desert creatures!
Weighing up to 73,000 pounds and measuring up to 50 feet, the gray whale in the Pacific Ocean is a spectacle to see. Every fall, the gray whale makes the longest migration of any mammal—a 6,000 mile journey from cold waters of Alaska and Siberia to the warm ocean of Baja California. The whales leave their home and arrive in late December to escape the chilly winter and take refuge to birth their young. They make the Pacific Ocean their home from January to March, offering us the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see them up close in their habitat. Watching these awe-inspiring creatures is a sight not to be missed.
Breaching, whale watching in Los Cabos
During the tour, you might be a spectator to a number of behaviors. While you’re on the boat, keep an eye out for spouting, the visible exhaling of air by the whale. This is the first indication of the proximity of whales. Another whale behavior is breaching: when the whale leaps out of the water and falls back with a splash. Whales are constantly moving and can remain underwater from two to five minutes, meaning you have to keep your eyes open and anticipate their direction so you will be ready for the next breach and sprout. Your guides will also be able to tell you where to look as they have become experts in reading whale behavior. While on the tour, you might also see the whales showing their flukes, and hear them sounding their whale song. The most exciting and thrilling behavior is spy-hopping. The whale pushes itself up to the surface of the water until he can see his surroundings. The curious creature comes face-to-face with its observers as you look at him.
Spy-hopping Whale Watching Tour
Although the gray whale is the most popular species, Los Cabos whale watching tours are rich because there might be the chance of seeing an even greater variety of animals. The tour is also available in Vallarta.
Dolphin Discovery takes you on this exciting whale watching tour in Los CabosandVallartaon a small boat, zodiac, giving us the ability to move in closer and faster to get an eye-to-eye close up with these stunning and beautiful animals.
Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos is open for business! February 14th, 2011 was a day to celebrate Valentine’s Day and the inauguration of Dolphin Discovery’s newest location.
“It must be love….this is this motto that best represents our opening on February 14th and that best describes the emotional bond between dolphins and humans” said Eduardo Albor, General Director of the Dolphin Discovery Group in his announcement for the opening of Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos in Puerto Los Cabos. “This project is done in partnership with the Questro Group in the beautiful destination of Puerto Los Cabos in what is the only dolphinarium in a natural environment in the Mexican Pacific”
Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos Opening Day Orientation
This Project is the tenth dolphinarium from the Dolphin Discovery Group, designed in a natural environment in the waters of the Sea of Cortez in Puerto Los Cabos, surrounded by lush greenery and soaring palm trees, a striking contrast to the cactus and nopales of the región. Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos is home to six Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, Titan, Triton, Eva, Shelly, Scarlett and Ixchel. The facility has the capacity to receive up to 300 visitors per day, welcoming guests looking to live the extraordinary experience of swimming with dolphins in the most beautiful dolphinarium in the Mexican Pacific.
“Our interactive programs were designed to allow guests to enjoy maximum interaction with these fascinating mammals in a natural environment like that of Los Cabos, learning about their care, their way of life, their anatomy and they come away with the experience of a lifetime, conscious of the importance of taking care of the environment and the species which inhabit our planet” said Edgar Urbina, Corporate Director of Trainers for the Dolphin Discovery Group. “The dolphins could not be in a better place and they have adjusted perfectly to their new home since their arrival on February 5th”.
Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos Opening Day
Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos is now welcoming new friends and sharing the experience of a lifetime in this prestigious destination. With three interactive dolphin swimming programs, we have something for everyone. The Dolphin Encounter program is ideal for families with young children and the Dolphin Royal Swim is perfect for those looking for an adventure in adrenaline. We invite you all to join us in the Mexican Pacific’s only dolphinarium set in a natural environment, enjoy a dolphin kiss and take home memories that will last a lifetime.
“Cabo“. One little word packs a powerful punch, its meaning is clear as soon as it is uttered. “Cabo“. Beaches, deep blue sea, luxurious celebrity getaway and now the home of the newest Dolphin Discovery location!
Located on the southern tip of Baja California, Cabo is a popular destination for sun lovers looking for a very special vacation escape. Luxurious hotels and homes line the shore, offering distinguished accommodations for travellers to enjoy the spectacular views. “El Arco de Cabo San Lucas” is perhaps the most recognizable landmark in Cabo, a stunning rock formation where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez and where the sea lions love to congregate. The winter months bring pods of whales to the area, offering travellers an opportunity to witness the majesty of these gigantic sea creatures. There is much to enjoy in Los Cabos, golf, fishing, sailing, water sports, shopping and fine dining, and of course, meeting the Cabo dolphins at Dolphin Discovery!
Dolphin Discovery Cabo invites you to join us as we launch our newest dolphinarium on February 14th, 2011. You’ll find us near the “Marina at Puerto Los Cabos” in San Jose de Cabo, an area rich in pirate history and now famous for the world-class fishing excursions. We look forward to becoming a part of the community and to sharing our love for dolphins and marine animals with a whole new group of friends and visitors. We hope to see you soon in Dolphin Discovery Cabo!
