A fun family adventure. There are different packages to choose from. You can't take a camera with you, but there is someone there that takes a lot of pictures of you and your family that you can buy. All pictures that you purchase come with a nice wooden frame.

How many times do you get to swim with Dolphins? The percentile of people in the world who have are very small. I'm a certified diver so doing things on the surface didn't intially hold a major appeal, but the more I thought it through, the more I wanted to try the experience. Dolphins are a protected species as it... More

We bought the second option or swimming with the Dolphins, we payed $109 dollars for it and it was incredible!!! You get to take cute pictures with the dolphin, swim hanging from its back and touch it as well. I had a blast. All while someone takes amazing pictures of you an your family! My only problem is that the... More

$325 Canadian for 2 people to attend and then they wanted $250+ for photos that weren't very well taken. Was sold that we'd be able to pick the 3 of 5 events ourselves, forced to do what our exceptionally large group did instead. Swimming with dolphins was great but found out afterwards there are other ones you get all photos... More

OMG This was amazing! My boyfriend and I payed extra to swim with only 2 other people and 2 dolphins for an hour. I would highly recommend upgrading, this way you get your money's worth. Most of the experience is posing for pictures with the dolphins, which was fine with me cause it made for some great shareable memories. The... More

Its a great experience to be so up close to the amazing dolphins and have swim with them. Just a different experience. But the cost is high and they charge a huge amount extra to give you pictures. So my advice is that buy a water safe camera and use that during the whole Cancun trip....it will prove much cheaper... More

Loved my whole experience with the dophins, incredible creatures. Very cute and intelligent. Would love to do it again, but beware you are not allowed to bring cameras with you into the water. But they do have photographers and videographers. The pictures will cost you though.

Don't prebook before leaving home or with holiday reps . A lot cheaper when you get to Mexico . We booked with a company called BD tours who were located in our hotel . Also took another trip with them . Excellent service and value for money
