Come to Marmaris and join our swimming with dolphins program for everyone....

Come to Marmaris and join our swimming with dolphins program for everyone. Our floating sea dolphinarium is open all the year round. Session times are daily at 09:30, 11:30, 13:30, 15:30 and 17:00. Each session last about 40 minutes.

Basically no advance reservation is required. In high season you should book on-site up to 3 days in advance due to high demand. Unfortunately we cannot accept reservations by phone.

The dolphinarium is at the sea front, 200 meters away from the Hotels Grand Yazici Mares and Club Turban in Marmaris (3 km from Icmeler, 5 km from Marmaris Centre).

We swam with Daisy and she was amazing, the trainer was very knowledgeable and we learnt many things about her, I recommend this as a unique experience.... More

Plenty of photos were taken, we got 3 photos (10 euro each or 36 lira each) Was the most expensive thing we... More

After being in contact with the dolphin park via email before my arrival in Turkey, I had decided to book both the meet and swim programs. We were staying approx 90 minutes away in Sarigerme, so did both programs on the same day to avoid paying for 2 return taxi journeys. We booked the taxi with Basket Travel, at a... More

Had an amazing time swimming with the dolphin. Much longer in the water than I expected. Even my 81 year old mother swam with the dolphin. The team were brilliant and made it a very enjoyable experience for myself, my mother, my daughter and grandson
