I don't have any comparison of any other Dolphin encounter so I think it was great!!! So did my children. I do think that it is not meant for kids smaller than 8 unless they like the adventure. You get pictures taken a bit expensive but we got over 50 pictures of our family. The aquarium by itself it is... More

The physical action of swimming with dolphins is one of the best experiences we have ever had. We plan to do this over and over again and would highly recommend for all ages. The only horribly negative review I would give Delphinus is they really stick it to you with the prices of the photos! Charging $150 for a photo... More

Would just like to say my husband and I went swimming with the Dolphins here we had an amazing adventure with these beautiful creatures. Everything was explained to us before we got to the pool. But make sure you are wearing only your swim wear as t shirts etc are not allowed we really enjoyed this experience. Personally I didn't... More

This is certainly worth doing the experience is very moving. It is a little expensive but is worth every penny. The staff are very friendly and you are not rushed at all.

You know that grin/smile you get the 1st time walking into Disney? Well, that's how it is swimming with dolphins at the Cancun location. It was awesome!

Swam with the Dolphins on our wedding anniversary. Will never forget the experience, trainer was friendly and gave us lots of information. You had an hour swimming with the Dolphins and the trainer made sure we had plenty interaction with the dolphin. We went for the silver package and were not disappointed. Photographs are ridiculously expensive and not worth the... More

With the Primax4 it is only four customers that they had two and sometimes three dolphins for there group for the full 45 minutes. The... More

As a Dolphin lover , swimming with the Dolphins was a bucket list item. Though I wish I would have had more time with them. We chose the smaller package of 45 min swim time to save money. But that 45 mins felt like 15 mins. I wish I had longer! It went too fast! The picture packages are ridiculous!... More

We did our swim with dolphins in Cancun at the aquarium in isla mall. The experience is awesome. Only the part where they had the dolphin swam around you was a bit too long. I was hoping a bit more tricks from the dolphins. We paid for the photos and videos $144 and I think it's worth it since I... More
