I was very apprehensive after booking the dolphin experience, but during the introduction my mind was put at rest. The dolphins were amazing and the aquarium is also OK. Some of the fish looked fantastic, but the tanks looked a little small to me, as I guess any tank should. I was worried about the upkeep of the dolphins, but... More

An extremely memorable experience for sure. The staff were very proactive and clear in their instructions. How can you beat swimming with dolphins?

We saw the Dolphin Show. It is amazing how well trained these animals are. We also watched people with the dolphins. We viewed the show as part of the sea aquarium shows.

It was my first time swimming with the dolphins and I loved it! The dolphin academy explained everything very clearly in advance in English, Spanish, and Dutch and our trainer took careful time to make sure everyone in our group of 6 got their own one on one time with the dolphins while out in the water. Plus, you get... More

I have always wanted to do a dolphin swim! I was impressed with how organized everything was and how well cared for the dolphins were. The experience was incredible. You are right there with the dolphins and able to swim alongside with them. I recommend this for anyone who wants to experience a dolphin swim.
