This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest.

We did the dolphin touch and you are right in the water touching the dolphin. The access is excellent and we did buy one photo for $15 as there is no way to take your own photos unless one of you does not take part and you can get a shot from the gallery. They had a beach front bbq... More

You pay a lot, but it's very wonderful to be so close to nature. Loved swimming with a dolphin and snorkeling with sting rays. A lot to do. Very nice, even with a lot of people there.

9 of us visited here. 4 adults and 5 kids. We all loved it! You have the opportunity to swim with sharks but none of us did. The dolphins were the best part of our holiday, we bought the dvd after swimming with them and all the photos. The pictures are a bit pricey but you can get good deals... More

For those who wants an adventure, I wouldn't pass this opportunity. The purchase of pictures and videos are a great option to capture your adventurous moments, but be aware several guests had problems getting their disc prior to departure. We were very fortunate our tour guide went out of his way to ensure they got their copies prior to returning... More

I was wary about this trip as peoe say the Dolphins are kept in such small spaces in these kind of places... However to me the pools were huge and the Dolphins were clearly adored and well cared for by all the staff we saw! We had a fantastic time here so much fun! Our group ranged in age from... More
