Have a blast in the water with dolphins, sharks and stingray. The group running Dolphin Island was great. They took lots of pictures and it was worth the purchase. Cant wait to do it again

My wife and I went swimming with the dolphins in Cuba, and that experience was extremely enriching, we spent almost 45 minutes swimming and playing with the dolphins, including a little trick where they came up behind us and carried us to the jetty. After that we were treated to a really amazing 20-30 minute display in the main arena.... More

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

45 minute swim with the dolphins.... AMAZING!!! a life experience, it's a new full package program just 40 dollars more than a big group program... Worth every dollar more and much 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
