Frequently Asked Questions:

Is my 15-year old son/daughter considered old enough to act as the 'responsible adult' for my daughter of 10 years? -- Sorry - the responsible adult must be at least 18 years of age.

Is it ok if my 3 year old comes with me into the Encounter program? -- We have no lower age limit for the Encounter program although a responsible paying adult must accompany each child under the age of 8.

Is there somewhere that I can leave my belongings? -- Each facility has lockers and you will be provided with a key after you have checked-in, against a deposit refundable. We cannot accept responsibility for any items lost or stolen in our property.

Do I need to bring extra cash? -- The facilities each have a boutique with clothes and souvenirs, (where you can also buy the video and photos taken during your Dolphin program), along with restaurants and snack bars, so you may want to bring some extra cash or a credit card with you.
