great experience

The dolphins are so obviously well cared for and enjoying the human interaction. It is worth the cost--a unique experience. The dolphins are all born at the aquarium.

Liked swimming with the dolphins in a pool rather than the fenced of ocean. It was exciting to have them push me with their noses on the bottom of my feet through the water. And having a close up experience with them.

Something I have always wanted to do and it was great!! The Dolphins were the best and well trained. For that they get 5 stars. BEWARE. They take photos of the adventure and will not let you take your own. After the swim they have the picture up on a computer and want to sell them to you. This is... More

Visited with girlfriend in October fantastic experience. I really enjoyed it and she loved it. One of the things she's always wanted to do. Really nice location and it was much bigger than the dolphin enclosure in our hotel. Only downside was the pictures were really really really expensive.

We spent 45 minutes in the water with 2 dolphins. Me and my 8 year old daughter absolutely loved it! There were only 4 of us in one pool with the dolphins. I would highly recommend this place for an outing.

It was the second best day in my life. You get to spend a whole day 9-5 with these amazing creatures in the water. I was so afraid of them before as I have always been afraid even of a smallest fish. I chose to try this activity and I would never regret doing it. you learn about their diet,... More

Our guide was outstanding! Very patient with my grown daughter who was afraid of getting in the water. Patient with everyone. We did a package with just the three of us (myself and my two grown children), and added the dolphin pull. Dolphins are well trained and loveable. Of course they took lots and lots of pictures -- and how... More

My 5 year old son chose this trip. It was awesome time. We really enjoyed ourselves. The facilities were clean and the staff were friendly. The prices were high for the pictures and video. Was not cost friendly.

My daughter and I paid extra so there would only be 4 of us in the pool with the dolphins. It was an experience of a lifetime. We loved it!
