Closer to dolphins
Boudewijn Seapark Bruges presents a unique, interactive dolphin encounter! During this program, you’ll join the caretakers at the border of the pool where the dolphins are. You’ll put on waders (special fishing trousers) and sit at the border of the pool with your feet in the water! The dolphins will then swim up to you. So you’ll be face to face with these fantastic animals! Meet them up close, touch their skin and feed them! Meanwhile, our caretakers will tell you all about these marine mammals, so you can learn more about the dolphins’ biology and behaviour. During this program, we’ll snap a picture of your encounter. We’ll print the photo and after the program you’ll get the photo along with a wonderful educational book.
(Check available dates and starting times in our online store. Dates only available between January and March)
The program lasts about 60 minutes, depending on the number of participants. You will spend about 30 minutes around the dolphin pool, and some of that time will be spent sitting next to the water.
Please note! There are some conditions to participation in this programme!
If the participant does not meet the conditions, Boudewijn Seapark will refuse participation in the programme on the day itself, without refunding any money already paid. We ask all participants to be aware that the main contributors to this program are our dolphins. Taking care of our dolphins is always our caretakers’ highest priority. Therefore, it may sometimes happen that we have to cancel the programme due to unforeseen circumstances. We ask for your understanding if this happens. Arrangements will be made for a new date at extra charge, in consultation with each individual participant.
