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

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

My husband and I upgraded to the $99 per person package and it was amazing. I was just the two of us with a trainer and Luca(the cutest 2 year old dolphin) I would definitely recommend this.

I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the experience in the pool, but it was all very well done. The staff are very professional and respectful.

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.
