The trainers looked like they couldn't really be bothered, they fed and played with the birds and the manky cats more than the dolphins. Secondly, swimming with the dolphins - 5 stars! These are amazing and extremely intelligent animals and we... More

The show was around 30 minutes. You then change into life jackets for your first kiss with two of the dolphins. Again, the experience was well worth the money. You can buy a CD of the experience for 35 cuc. There are lots of cute, spayed cats hanging around, please feed them!
