Although dolphin therapy is not recognized as an official method of treatment, the results of improvement over time spent with dolphins are still available. a great surprise for a child can be a birthday celebration at the dolphinarium. Dolphins are very friendly to children and will love to play with them. In addition, a creative team of animators will hold fun competitions for kids. Time spent with marine animals will have a positive effect on children and adults, regardless of age.
