We chose this as a once in a lifetime excursion. It was a fabulous experience! Never have we been that close to a dolphin...it was amazing and very informative too. A perfect family event!

We did both the Dolphin Encounters and the Blue Lagoon Beach Day. The dolphins were amazing and the trainers were outstanding! We got a great picture of the 4 of us that will be a lasting memory. The beach side area was amazing - something for each of us. Water/bounce houses, floating water slides, kayaks, snorkeling, plenty of shade to... More

The dolphin swim was incredible! We ended up getting about an hour in the water with them which was even better as I thought we only had... More

Guides are well spoken, well informed and really cater to the younger crowd. The event was nicely choreographed and proceeded smoothly. A do again event.

I simply stood back and soaked up the sun and swam in the lagoon. A+ Highly recommended. If you are worried about getting back to a cruise in time... They... More
