Dolphin Island does exactly as it suggests. You get to jump in the water with these beautiful creatures. Whilst in the pool you will see the Dolphins perform tricks and have lots of contact with the animals. Perhaps most memorable was to ride along with the dolphin and you will even receive a kiss! The animals seem to enjoy the... More

My 8 year old and I had a great experience with the dolphins and the program was great. The cost was $115USD/person and was reasonable for the experience. However, you cannot use your own camera and the picture CD was a criminal price. I had expected the CD would cost ~$20-$25. However, the only option is to buy all the... More

We were able to negotiate to get in for free and watch the kids in the water with the dolphins from a distance. It is difficult to... More

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.
