Dolphin offers research motivated, boat based activities which focus on creating a safe space for marine mammal encounters to take place, whereby a nurturing rather than needy approach is followed. We have been active in the area of dolphin eco-tourism since the mid 90's having pioneered structured in-water encounters in Africa; with the aim of establishing a sustainable monitoring project through the research & conservation arm of DolphinCare.Org.
