Lord! We will remember this day forever, we had such a great experience! We spent some lovely time playing with two Dolphins and later we swam with sharks! The pictures the photographer took are great. The guagua (bus) is free and really pretty, plus they give you free soda at the end of the trip. It is a pit pricey,... More

This excursion was amazing!! I got to swim with this dolphins and got to touch them and had the best time. This was well worth the money. It was very clean and the people and the trainers treated the animals very well. This experience is something I will treasure forever.

We booked the trip directly through our hotel concierge and had a great experience. They picked us up from the hotel and we were at the site in less than 5 minutes. You get put into groups based on color of wrist band they give you when you arrive and fill out the paperwork. We had an enjoyable trip and... More

Be EXTREMELY careful who you book this excursion with!!! We booked with Viator over the phone who confirmed our dolphin experience half day trip at Dolphin Island. Unfortunately, what we paid for (substantial amount of money) was not what we received. We were picked up at 7:30 by a tour guide who spoke very limited English, and joined a small... More

Staff were friendly. Dolphins were very well trained and all those in the group got to do the belly ride, 2 dolphin ride and got to stroke the dolphins on several occasions. I have now been there, done that with the dolphins.

Rude staff, unorganized pick up, dolphins making a million for owners, no staff speak english, never swam just a photo shoot and lots of bobbing and petting. Too expensive! and does not include cost of photos. Not a half day at all. Good luck.
