I took the Extreme tour which included sharks, sting rays, sea lion and dolphins. It is expensive but is something you will do once in your life so why not? I enjoyed everything, staff was great and it was really fun.

I liked all of this place. Make sure you are carrying money because you will need it on site. Staff will take a lot of pictures and you have the choice to buy them at the end ($75 dolphin package).

My husband and I were unsure if we wanted to do a dolphin excursion since we heard they are typically overcrowded and you don't get to spend much one on one time with the dolphins. Instead, we went for the Sea Lion Excursion, which was 80 a person. When we first go there, the video we watched only explained how... More

We went with small kids after we were told repeatedly that we were going to swim with dolphins. This was more like touching dolphins while holding on to a platform and to my small kids at the same time since my kids were too small to participate. Not what we were expecting. Then we were told we couldn't be allowed... More

This was a very disappointing experience. This "4 hour" excursion was a drive to dolphin island from my hotel which was about 30 mins, you wait another 30 mins and watch a video about dolphin, you pack in a boat and they take you to where the doplhins are at. You are not allowed to use your own camera of... More

The experience was good because it was our first experience with Dolphins and my wife love them , but there was some issues with the transportation and the picture package is very expensive. I was also very disappointed with the quality of the pictures taken despite of they have a good camera and a 70-200, 2.8mm Lens. Disappointed .

overpriced but otherwise a fun morning. The bus ride coming back too to long as for the wait time. The Dolphins were amazing in what they do to the guests.

Had a brilliant experience and it really made my trip! The staff were friendly as were the creatures! If it wasn't for that I would have had the worst holiday even to be honest

Our kids thoroughly enjoyed their Dolphin Experience. My wife and I though it was good, our previous one at another Caribbean island was better. The photo DVD is overpriced and the photos are OK, nothing great. The actual dolphin experience doesn't last long, maybe 20 minutes, you spend a lot of time waiting to be ferried to the island when... More
