I researched different dolphin swims, and chose this one to do. I was not disappointed! It was just wonderful. I couldn't stop smiling through the whole afternoon and wanted to do it again as soon as it was over. The dolphins were great, the boat ride was fabulous, and our trainer was so patient with us and with the dolphins.... More

I have been diving for a while, but these were my 11 year old daughters first dives since recently getting certified. First dive was the shark feeding dive. Great experience. I did a two tank dive the next day, and the weather was pretty rough. The afternoon dive was eventually cancelled. Getting back on the boat was a bit of... More

I did my first ocean dives this month with UNEXSO. My husband and I booked the two-tank dives through Carnival. We had great shuttle service over and back. There were nice changing facilities, a restaurant, great gift shop, nice equipment for rental, but most importantly, the most amazing two dive masters. We had a small group - only three of... More

We did not get to do the dives, unlike previous reviews we could not reschedule:( We rolled right into a 2 tank dive with a great staff. The boat is big and can take a lot of people,... More

Our dolphin trainer was extremely knowledgeable and had a great personality and our two dolphins, Coral and Cocoon, were adorable! I was happy to know that all the dolphins are well-cared for and are not forced to do anything they... More

Swimming with Dolphins has been a dream of mine for a long time and it finally came true on a trip to Freeport. The staff here were very friendly, knowledgeable, and ensured everyone in the group had a special experience. I walked away from the Dolphin Swim experience feeling as though it was money well spent. They do have a... More
