Since you are in smaller groups you do get to spend more time interacting with these amazing mammals; petting, feeding, dancing and "foot push," this is where the dolphin pushes you through the water with their noses on the bottom of your feet!  Both types of Dolphin Swims can be found at Blue Lagoon and Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island.
