Your safety during your journey, stay & therapy

Your safety during your journey, stay & therapy
We ask all our guests to make sure your personal hygiene is adequate at all times. If you are not feeling well or experiencing symptoms including coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath or loss of taste and/or smell in combination with fever, we urge you to contact your physician before traveling to Curaçao.

When you cannot fly
The CDTC must adhere to her regular cancellation policy for any period in which traveling to Curaçao is possible. Travel warnings are not eligible for the exceptions below.

An exception is made in the following situations:

  • Border closures;
  • Travel bans;
  • If the therapy child, one of her/his siblings or the parent is tested positive for Coronavirus 2 to 3 days before arrival.

In those cases, there is a travel restriction due to the measures imposed by the authorities of Curaçao or other countries impacting your journey. We may ask you to send us a copy of a written document confirming one of the above situations. We will then provide you with the option to rebook your therapy free of charge to a date before the end of 2022.

In all other cases, if you cancel a confirmed reservation, the $1,000 deposit will be charged and will be forfeited. Cancellation of a confirmed reservation within 90 days before the start of therapy is only possible on medical grounds (the doctor’s statement must be included in the cancellation). The payment already made for the therapy minus the deposit will be transferred to a subsequent therapy period.

If no doctor’s statement can be submitted, all payments already made will expire.

We look forward to welcoming you for your reserved dolphin assisted therapy program.

With warm regards,

Management
Curaçao Dolphin Therapy & Research Center.

"He asked me if I had an idea what heaven looked like, and envisioned what life would be as an angel. He was dead serious. On the first day of dolphin aid therapy these thoughts were just gone and replaced by 'yes' to life. For all of us." 🐬❤️ (Annette Lindner, quote from the book 'Delphintherapie - Beweis eines Wunders) by Kirsten Kuhnert
