This island has 2 dolphin attractions. THIS IS tHE GOOD ONE!!! The animals are kept in very spacious lagoon, they look well cared for and were simply a delight!!! They are very nice the trainers and the staff in the shop. Not overpriced, got a 25% off coupon at the car rental place! We would highly recommend this attraction!

I always wanted to do this at 12 and now I finally has the chance at 27!! I swam with the 2 dolphins Reggae (male) and Luna (female)! We danced, caught a ride by holding onto their flippers, and petted them. The service and trainers were Very warm, friendly, organized and fun!!

We booked this as an excursion while on our cruise. We booked the Dolphin Encounter with Stingray City swim. The Dolphin Encounter was a huge disappointment. We waited for almost 45 minutes. Our actual encounter time was not quite 8 minutes. We went into the water with one dolphin. We were encouraged to kiss, be kissed and hold hands with... More

I book this with my husband as part of our cruise excursion. It's lot of fun! My husband couldn't swim and he still enjoyed it a lot. There were only 4 other couples in the same group with us. Group size is very good, and we got to spend around 30 minutes with the dolphin. The staff is very friendly,... More

The facility inside was nice. However as soon as you walk outside a sulfur type odor hits you and doesn't go away until you leave. This was booked as a shore excursion activity. They got us down to the decks in the water, gave us a life vest and let us bake for about 15 mins in the sun. Not... More

My family and I went with the Ultimate Dolphin experience and were not disappointed. The cost is fair and the staff is accommodating. The only complaint that my three children had is that they wanted more time with the dolphins! The entire experience is structured to be fun an enjoyable while learning about these magnificent mammals. There are several packages... More

We signed up for the Ultimate Swim which included two Dolphins to swim and play with. It was totally worth it! The whole experience probably took about 1.5 hours, first starting with a 45 minute introduction to the animals and other facts about their facility. Then we got life vests and splashed into the water with the Dolphins. The instructors... More

Mixed feelings about this place. We booked the dolphin swim package but on arrival when we were paying it came out more expensive, I questioned this and they had put us down for the ultimate swim package instead which was more expensive. I corrected them but it appeared we couldn't do the original one today. We agreed to the ultimate... More

Along with my wife and 2 teenage daughters we reserved the dolphin ultimate swim along with stingray city the day before without having to pay anything. If we had to cancel the next day we were not out any money. We found coupons at Budget for 25% off so that helps. The staff was very friendly. We were allowed to... More
