    We're going on the Disney Fantasy cruise July 2017 Western Caribbean. Is there an excursion provided by Disney to swim with the Dolphins? If yes, can you book it on the ship and does Disney help you get there? Thanks!

    Welcome back, Stacey! Swimming with the dolphins was one of the most memorable Port Adventures that my daughter and I ever experienced with Disney Cruise Line! There are a few choices for dolphin encounters and dolphin swims on your Western Caribbean itinerary on the Fantasy.

    Before you begin looking into the different options, decide whether you'd like a full dolphin experience, including more interaction in the deeper water, and a push or a pull across the pool by the dolphin, (if the price isn't too much of a factor, I'd recommend this type of adventure for sure!), or the more simple dolphin encounter where guests interact with the dolphins in shallow water.

    Cozumel has two different dolphin interaction locations for Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures, each offering a variety of experiences. Both Dolphin Discovery at Chankanaab National Park and Dolphinaris are beautiful spots to explore after your amazing in-water experience with the dolphins.

    Grand Cayman also offers some amazing choices when it comes to swimming with dolphins. If you're interested, the Dolphin Swim and Stingray City Adventure is my favorite! Besides swimming and being pulled along in the water by the beautiful dolphins, your adventure guide will also take you out to the beautiful sandbar in the ocean called Stingray City. There, you can interactive with stingrays galore! My kids really enjoyed petting the stingrays and we all were in awe at the beauty of them as they seemed to fly through the water so gracefully!

    I hope that provides you with some excellent Port Adventure options, Stacey! Happy planning!
