This excursion was high on our list. The have different packages that offer different levels of interaction. We went with the full blown package... the Royal... and we think it was well worth the upgrade. We'd recommend it! The bus picked us up at our resort. Once we arrive we got suited up in life jackets and took a short... More

I paid for the royal swim, where you are able to interact with dolphins. Glad I paid extra, was able to have the dolphine lift me, I was able to grab onto their fins when told and even got to kiss one

The crew was super nice and very funny.. We got to play with 3 of them in a cage. They did a few trick with us. I recomend that you buy the $60 DVD at the end we got over 200 pictures of us playing with the Dolphins.

My sister went here and they completley lied when they told us about this. We told them she wanted to go swimming with dolphins only. When she got their they swam for a few minutes and then after all they did was look at other animals. Although we got 75% off they lied to us about it. Other than that... More

We did the super deluxe dolphin swim and loved it. Great interactions and well cared for animals. However, the transport trucks posed a serious danger and should be avoided until this issue is addressed. The ride there and back was provided by Dolphin Island and was painful. The trucks are outfitted with sound systems pointed into the passenger area. The... More

Really really great experience. I was a little apprehensive after reading so many negative ones but I have nothing but great things to say about our experience. We swam with Tony and had a blast. Junio, our guide and photographer was wonderful. Pictures were great and reasonably priced. Worst part was afterwards and having to wait on everyone to finish... More

This was a good excursion, though thee trainers were not very friendly. Our photographer was great and really helped make the kids' experience extra special. We had some time with the dolphins and then back on the boat and headed back to the main land. Like everywhere else, they do not allow you to take pictures with your own camera... More

Very difficult experience due to poor organization and lack of English speaking employees. The only Employee that was helpful was Gabriel. Not worth the money you only spend "15 mins MAX with the dolphins. Lunch was not included and $60. For a DVD of pictures on top of the $300+ you just paid. Very upsetting to see that the dolphins...

It was great experience being an animal lover. Wished we could have gotten little more one on one with dolphins. But overall staff was great and seemed to treat the animals great which was most important to me. Would definitely recommend.

I would not recommend you to go because the trainer could not make the dolphin to do any tricks and when the other groups were done with their time we only got to spend time with a well train dolphin for 5 minutes instead of the 25 minutes they promise. Also I would not recommend you to purchase the video... More
