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

Paid for package of 4 which allowed it to be just our family. Was awesome! Photos were expensive - we paid for the memory stick instead - they would only sell 8x10 photos... Great family memory!

We booked this excursion through Expedia travel at our resort. We wanted to do a "couples" swim which meant it would be the 2 of us with the dolphin rather than the 2 of us with a group of 6-8 strangers in a group swim. Delhpinus was the only establishment (I believe there are 3 that offer a dolphin swim)... More

We visited Cancun in December 2014. My son wanted to try swim with Dolphins & we chose Delphinus, at the interactive aquarium in Cancun mall. Well, what they show in the posters is different than what we actually get. It is $$$ & not worth the money. maybe other locations come with a better offer. The reason I say is... More

Swimming with dolphins is a unforgettable experience! This was our second time and the first for my kids. They love it! This is an aquarium so you're basically swimming on a pool. I prefer the Dolphins Discovery at Isla Mujeres but we did this one this time and it was great too but not better than the first. Pictures prices... More

Dear Traveller Thank you for writing and taking your time to share your comments regarding your experience in our facility We know that some people feel that our price of photographs is high, however, we must say that the price is at the average price of photos for people swimming with dolphins in the place (Cancun or Riviera Maya).

If you're trying to find some more nice memories for the future this is a must. Of course interacting with these amazing creatures is always an amazing experience, but the whole staff will make you feel so comfortable and safe. We are really grateful with Randy, the dolphin trainer, for all his patience and sharing his knowledge. They gave my... More

Dolphins are beautiful creatures! The facilities where the dolphins were kept are well maintained and the dolphins seemed happy. Dolphins were like large friendly dogs that only wanted to play! Great experience for getting up close and personal with these creatures. Only downfall was that the prices at the aquarium were piecemeal. Pricey enough to swim with the dolphins, then... More

We upgraded to the Prix4 package, which meant four of us had time with one dolphin. Gabriel, our trainer, was terrific, answered all questions, and Luis took great pictures! While this dolphin swim is not as posh as the one in Discovery Cove in Orlando, we had much more time and did many more things with the dolphin, including being... More
