This was such a great trip on a small boat. The Dolphins were friendly, playful and right next to us. This was the best part of our family trip to Mexico, DON'T MISS IT!

I think she woukd be safe if you have a life jacket for her. The boat is out for over an hour though and little ones don't have a long attention span. She will be bored and restless before you get back.

Hola! Yes we allow pregnant women in the water up to 7 months pregnant no more than that. On our facebook page you can find in our videos a video of a pregnant lady swimming with the dolphins on our tour.
