I wanted to do something special for my birthday and decided to do a swim with dolphins. Let me start out by saying the trainers and the animals were wonderful, but my problems started with the disinterested / annoyed gate workers to the shop keepers that literally hounded you to buy their goods. If my transport hadn't left I probably... More

We felt that there wasn't enough to do and also got hounded by guides at the entrance. Shop sellers were very pushy. The sea lion & dolphin was the best part of the park

We really enjoyed the park overall. we were there more for the swim with the dolphins but the park had so many other things to do while you waited for your time. Some of the staff was a little pushy and we felt like we were not going to have a minute to ourselves to enjoy it alone. We did... More

The tickets where expensive but where one of the cheaper trips so I took them. The bus does frequently leave the hotels but as previous reviewers has stated after a maximum of 2 hours your day is over but are trapped due to the lack of buses for returning to your resort. The show pool for the dolphins was small... More

We were a little worried as we booked this trip before reading the reviews, however we had a fantastic time. We chose to swim with the dolphins and within 10 minutes of arriving we were in the pool. The dolphins looked for and healthy and not like some previous reviews describe. The swimming was a fabulous experience that I would... More

Snorkeling, shows, and dancing on the catamaran made for a great day in the sun. I would do it all again.

Hi, I went to the park 5/14/2014 at around 8:30am for my swim with the dolphins and show. As soon as I got there, it was depressing. The pool for the dolphins is about half the size of a regular pool. It was tiny for everyone trying to swim with the dolphins. I kept bumping into the other people swimming... More
