Swimming with the dolphins with UNEXSO at Freeport was amazing and worth the money. They pick you up from your ship a short bus ride to their facility where you are greeted by friendly and informative staff. After a short 5 minute boat ride you arrive at the dolphin cove. THe dolphins appear well cared for and the staff seem... More

We booked a trip thru unexso for a group of our customers. Unexso was awesome! Everything was top notch and they worked extremely hard to meet all of our needs. Althea in reservations is on top of everything. Christina and the crew were outstanding. Thanks for a great trip! We will be back!

We learned a great deal about working with and caring for dolphins and loved the experience. On our most recent trip, my mom and I went on the Dolphin Encounter tour.... More

We were fresh from our first dive experience, and we decided to do another day of dives. Sadly, the 1st shop was not available, so we decided to try Unexso, since they are right by our resort. We decided to do a 2 tank morning dive. We arrived at 8.15 for a 9am departure. They checked us in, and sent... More

We were lucky that she was available at the time of our dive and hot to see her graceful interactions with sharks...it is something spectacular. The whole crew was dynamic, friendly and very professional. Looking forward to our next... More

The dolphin SWIM was amazing!!! So much time in the water with the dolphins. The trainers were amazing! They allow you and encourage you to take your own pictures even though they do the professional shots that you can buy at the end. Although we did take lots of pics, everyone purchased pictures at the end. A pleasure after spending... More

We arrived in Freeport by cruise ship and purchased the dolphin encounter directly from the ship. Our group had 8 guests including 2 children & seniors with mobility issues. The day began with a bus ride to the facility where we were on a rain delay for a short time. After traveling by boat to the sanctuary, we were greeted... More
