My experience with Unexso was fantastic. Prior to the trip I emailed inquiring on the shark dive, Jaimee answered all my questions in the numerous emails I sent. The crew on the boat was amazing, helping me with my equipment as it had been a while since I had been diving. Diego even suggested I wear a thicker wetsuit than... More

We originally booked a dolphin dive and shark dive for our trip. The weather was bad so our dolphin dive was cancelled, but they easily refunded our money. We then opted to add reef dives and a swim with the dolphins. Our first reef dive was to shark junction. I was scared to stay in the water after seeing all... More

We partook this scuba attraction and found the dive personnel, equipment, and boats to be top notch. Never did we feel as if we were not part of a professional operation. I completely left my camera on the boat during the dive and the intern brought it down to me(nice). The dolphin experience is one-of-a-kind and something that my wife... More

Really great opportunity to meet the dolphins, touch them, enjoy the tricks they show! It was really cold when we went to the Dolphins Encounter, but we enjoyed it anyway! The dolphins are amazing!

You have a variety of options with UNEXSO. You can choose to swim with a dolphins of your own in an aquarium which will set you back $190 U.S. Most people choose to do the simple dolphin encounter where each person gets a peck on the cheek with the dolphin along with a group show at the encounter pool.

We did the Dolphin Encounter. The experience was amazing. Quite literally a chance in a lifetime. The trainers are wonderful, taking time with each group to make sure they have the best experience. You get more then enough time to be in the water with the dolphins, watching them do tricks and I even got to feed one. We all... More

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend in Freeport centered around diving. We went out with UNEXSO two days for a total of 4 dives. We were very happy with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff, dive sites and gear quality. If you get a chance- ask the guide to visit Shark Junction!

I did the shark dive as a prequel to the 3-days shark feeder course, but I can't review the whole course here because Tripadvisor is not meant for multi-day activities (I did try a review, got rejected...). I also did a 2-tank morning dive. In general, I must say that I really enjoyed UNEXSO in general, because it's really a... More

Lucked out and went on a day with no cruise ships (not Monday, Wednesday or Friday) and had the place to ourselves... literally... Pretty cool, but a little pricey.
