Lots people ask whether swimming with dolphins in Alcudia is possible but as they are in the wild swimming freely it is not possible. Despite that dolphins are known to be very sociable creatures so whenever they feel the presence of humans they do not hesitate to come up close and impress with their skills.

For that reason we have chosen the moment of the sunrise as it is when the waters are calmer and it also makes the experience extra special. As it is an early start breakfast is served on board. Can you picture yourself drinking a coffee while the sun rises in a secnario of mountains and crystal clear water as dolphins swim and jump around you?
