I did this excursion yesterday and all I can say is amazing. Touching dolphins (so soft like cotton), kissing, singing, and unforgettable experience. Clear water in a natural pool in the middle of the ocean. I will add some pictures later.

Don't waste your money on this excursion! The people were rude!!! They herded you through like cattle, yelling out orders that we could not understand. The cages for the dolphins were small and upsetting. We were given very little time with the dolphins. Lots of photos were taken by their photographer. Our cameras were not allowed. You can purchase a... More

We sailed by dolphin island while we were on a snorkeling trip. We passed by slow and close enough to see the terrible conditions these animals were being held in. The "pens" were about the size of a backyard pool, hardly enough for dolphins. We passed by in the middle of the day with many other boats but the place... More

Even when my little boy enjoyed too much, the contact with dolphins is minimium and they banned your cameras only to sell the pics after.

Awesome time swimming with dolphins. You don't get to ride them or anything they just do some tricks and you get to pet them and they "kiss" you on the cheek. But you're in the water and very close to them (within arms length). My wife loved this. The stingrays and sharks are huge (one nurse shark is like 7... More

It was our first time swimming with dolphins and it was WONDERFUL. The travel time to the dolphin excursion is about 50 min from the Paradisus keeping in mind that the van makes stops along the way to pick up other customers. They have a bar where you can purchase fresh coconut water, liquor, etc. There is also a photographer... More

Paid the $150 thinking we can "swim" with the dolphins like we had before in Mexico and didn't need to swim with two dolphins for the $200 price tag so we opted for the $150. Let me say that you don't get to actually swim with the dolphins. They have a large group line up and have the dolphin swim... More
