Amazing experience

Great swim, the staff was very kind, the place was very clean, the photos and videos was too expensive! The van who picked us up on the hotel was on time scheduled!

I actually did not swim with the dolphins, but took pictures of several folks who did and spoke to them afterwards. They thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

This tour is not as highly recommended as La Isla Mujeres dolphin encounter because it was in an aquarium setting. That being said, because we booked a day before we were to do the experience, our guide provided us with a 30% discount off rack rate, which was much better than any of the trip sellers could provide.

This was the highlight of our trip. It is well worth the cost to do the Primax 4 - a more private 4 person experience allowing for more interaction with the dolphin. The look on my kids faces was priceless, especially during the foot push. Picture packages are a little pricey, but worth buying to preserve the memories.

My mom, aunt, a family friend and myself swam with the dolphins at the aquarium. We had a ball! Totally worth every penny. If you are wavering on which package to try go with the 45 min experience. The dolphin push was worth the upgrade. The pictures were super expensive so 3 of us bought one to remember the trip... More

Loved getting one on one time with the dolphins! We chose the couples dream swim. Which offered us 60 minutes actually with the dolphin. The trainers at Delphinus are extremely knowledgeable and the dolphins love the attention and belly rubs. We got to interact with the dolphins named Waabil, and Luanna. Dolphins really are such amazing creatures and being so... More

The dolphin swim was fun but I chose to purchase my pictures when I got home. I paid for the pictures via paypal ($99) and was told that they would email them to me that day. Now after 25 phone calls and 30 emails, I STILL have NOT received my pictures OR a reply! They are very unwilling to assist... More

we paid 338 dollars and then paid an extra 70 dollars to do just as a couple but they then gave us 80 dollars discount to use on another trip so it ended up costing about 328 dollars which is about £250 I think ,which is a lot but it is an experience .we had a good hour with the... More

We booked our swim time just for the 2 of us: one dolphin for me and one for my husband. It was expensive, but worth it because you don't have to share your dolphin with a group. The trainers provided an excellent experience with the dolphins. They introduced us slowly to the dolphins and made the activities more active as... More
