A small group from our cruise ship went here; took turns having the dolphin, Nemo, pushing us on a boogy board, holding fins and letting each one hold on and belly swim. Then, we got to hold and kiss him, and he kissed our cheeks. The photos they took were pricey, but I did buy.

We booked through Celebrity Cruise Lines and I don't remember reading any of the following prior to our excursion. We arrived and were told that we could wear absolutely NO... More

This was one of the activities my wife has wanted to do for years. The Stingray part of the tour was canceled because of the bad weather. But even with the bad weather we really enjoyed this experience. My wife was thrilled with her time with the Dolphin. The staff was overloaded because of the closing of the stingray part... More

We enjoyed watching our kids have a great experience. The only negative was the price on trip advisor was not updated to current cost, but they did work with us to make us happy. I would definitely recommend this activity.

Swimming with dolphins has always been on my bucket list, so I was excited to have the opportunity to interact with Dolphins as an excursion on my Celebrity Cruise. I was not disappointed--this was such an amazing experience. I really enjoyed being able to interact up close with the dolphins. I even was able to ride on the belly of... More
