Great but never again

Dolphins were friendly but imprisoned forever. I won't support this ever again. Dolphins had marks on them from trying to escape thru the fence.

The dolphins are beautiful intelligent creatures so you cannot feel but sorry for them being imprisoned on a floating barge. It was amazing interacting with them but I do wish they were left free to roam the ocean. The trip also included snorkeling with stingrays and sharks plus a quick ride on a jet boat that went under the water... More

We were sold this excursion at our resort by a Dolphin Island salesperson. We were going back and forth on what we wanted to do and how much we wanted to spend, but knew we wanted to have the snorkeling with the stingrays/sharks. We looked at doing the sea lion encounter. The salesperson told us that if we upgraded to... More

We stayed at the Reserve at The Paradisus and absolutely loved every minute of it. On our snorkeling trip, which was great, they take you by Dolphin Island to try and get you to book an experience. It was awful. It is a floating barge with two pool like areas and a deck around them. The deck was loaded with... More

We were sold a Royal dolphin experience which we were told was 50 minutes with 2 dolphins by yourself. It was actually in the same pool as all of the other experiences so over 40 people with 2 dolphins between the 11 Royal experience clients. Very overpriced and the dolphin had a lot of scars and a sore nose. You... More

Once we got to the resort where the Dolphin swim was, all was great! We sailed a quick 5 minute ride to the island, were greeted by our team and were split into groups. I believe there were 8 in our group. I was kicking myself not taking my iPhone to take pictures (I read reviews they're no allowed) but... More

Its an amazing experience! My son (9) was excited beyond words. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Just dont pay for and "expectator" to come along, cause they cant get close to the dolphins to take pictures. The cd they sell its expensive but its your choice to buy it or not.
