Cabo Dolphins Marine Center: American Humane Certified

Learn more about how you can swim with dolphins at Cabo Dolphins Marine Center, which is American Humane certified for excellent, humane treatment of animals.

Increased efforts are being made to provide humane treatment of animals in interactive tourist encounters, like swimming with dolphins and other marine mammals. This highly sought-after experience often comes with the risk of supporting an institution that does not meet the needs of the animals in their facility. The best indicator that a company is providing excellent care for their animals is whether or not they have been given the stamp of approval from American Humane.

Humane Conservation Certification

American Humane has created a program designed by scientists, veterinarians, and wildlife experts to encourage and enforce higher standards in animal facilities like zoos, aquariums, and centers with interactive animal encounters. Facilities that meet these standards of excellence and show that they are contributing to conservation and rehabilitation efforts are eligible to receive the Humane Conservation certification.

This certification not only raises the standards for animal facilities all over the world, but it provides a way for travelers to know whether they’ve chosen a trustworthy company for their encounter. Animal lovers can enjoy these incredible experiences in good conscience that these animals are being taken care of and these animal facilities efforts to educate the public can continue to grow.

Cabo Dolphins Marine Center

Cabo Dolphins Marine Center provides a safe space for travelers to learn more about marine mammals and ongoing conservation efforts. In Cabo, we have dolphin centers in two locations: Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Our facilities offer educational and interactive experiences from genuine professionals who are passionate about sharing their knowledge in a fun way. The centers also focus on research and rehabilitation of marine mammals and others native to the area.

Cabo Dolphins Marine Center has received the Humane Conservation certification from American Humane. We proudly provide the highest level of care to our dolphins and other animals.

“Our marine mammal family deserves all our efforts to ensure their well-being,” said Leonardo Ibarra, Head of Veterinary at Cabo Dolphins. “By getting accredited by the American Humane Association in their Humane Conservation certification, we know we continue in the right direction.”

“It is an honor for us to receive this certification, as it reflects that the care and wellbeing of our dolphin family comply with international standards of animal welfare,” mentioned Ricardo Santos, Marine Mammal Specialist at Cabo Dolphins.“We are proud to be part of a company that seeks new ways to enrich the lives of animals under human care."
