Watch the Playful Pink Amazon Dolphins from a Floating House

See us interact and feed wild dolphins; it is a really unique experience to witness these truly wild creatures be really comfortable around humans. Sometimes these dolphins don't even come for the food and just want to play with us. It is no surprise then that the locals call them water dogs in the native tongue.

Description

Supervised by the National Amazonian Research Institute, this Online Experience is live-streamed from the deck of a floating house on the Niegro River, the largest left tributary of the Amazon River. Come and watch us interact with, and feed the friendly wild pink dolphins in these waters. 

It is a unique experience to see these creatures of the wild sea being really comfortable around humans and truly enjoying human company. The pink whales, regarded as the smartest river creatures of the Amazon are also known to be extremely friendly. They often approach humans just to play - even when food isn't in the picture! It is no surprise, then, that the locals call them "water dogs" in the native tongue. 

This Online Experience will allow you to enjoy the company of these lovely creatures. You will also find yourself able to get a closer look as you spot their smaller dorsal fin and learn about the various other striking physical markers that distinguish them from ocean dolphins.
