The water temperature rarely rises above 19 degrees celsius in the summer months and drops to around 8 degrees celsius in the winter months. To keep you comfortable in the water we provide good quality 5 mm wetsuits which consist of a full body one piece overall with a 5mm jacket which fits over the top, providing 10mm of insulation around your core.
In the colder months of winter we provide you with additional gear of gloves and booties.
All boats that we use for swimming with dolphins have deck showers available to help you warm up in between swims if necessary or when you have finished swimming.
