This was a particularly good excursion, Usually I don't like going to "animal" places having had bad experiences in Thailand- but actually the sealife was well cared for and the dolphins seemed genuinely happy- not just going through the motions. There is a little outdoor cafe that sells basic food- be warned if you don't eat fried food meat you're... More

We all loved being at the dolphin cove. We done the encounter program which was so cool. For families with really young children this programme is brilliant. I took my 11month old baby with me and he loved it! We also encountered sting rays, went down a waterslide and their is another option of encountering a shark which we didnt... More

I enjoyed the encounter but I feel the actual place was expensive for food, souvenirs etc There is a man outside who will offer your child a necklace then expect money for it so warn your children not to accept anything to avoid the tears

Beautiful location, kids had a wonderful experience. The Dolphin trainer was alot of fun. We also got to pet Parrots, a snake and an Iguana. Saw a shark show. Overall a great day - but be sure it is something you /your kids really want to do as it is a little on the pricey side for what you get.

The swim is very short and the rest of the park they tried to get us to pay extra for everything. My daughter did like the swim but i would only recommend if its on you bucket list.

We loved it, I wish it had lasted longer! It was neat that they had other things like the shark and sting ray. Pictures are way too spendy in my opinion but gift shop was great and inexpensive.

Swimming with dolphins is great. If you want the very expensive photos of the dolphin experience offer the sales person less in cash!

We swam with wild Dolphins in Eygpt but wanted to get up close and personal and thats exactly what you get here....what amazing creatures. You get a choice of swim level depending on what you want to do, so nobody is put in a situation they don't want to be in and I think that's important. The usual pictures CD... More

First of all.....bring a tonne of money......you have to pay a lot for everything! Food, drinks, pictures. And there is not much to do really. The actual interaction with the dolphins was quite enjoyable; my husband and I did the Swim with the dolphins encounter which was a lot of fun and put a smile on my face and the... More
