Mum and I swam with the dolphins which was a fantastic experience and the dolphins were great. However, we purchased the DVD and photos as it was a once in a life time experience. But I would like to advise people that they were very expensive and the DVD was NOT worth buying, as most of the stuff we did... More

My mom and I spent the day at the aquarium there, and swimming with the dolphins. I was a little hesitant about it, but I absolutely loved the experience. The Dolphins were well-trained and seem to be pretty acclimated to humans, the trainer said that they were rescues and couldn't be released to the wild. My mom and I also... More

For the money you pay, you would expect time with the dolphins. Instead, it was constant posing for photos for each participant. If you are a parent and want to watch your children, then you better ask for the pool closer to the observation deck. As if the admission prices weren't enough, they charge $25 for a photo. What a...

Even though I'm against dolphins in captivity, I couldn't resist a chance to swim with dolphins for the first (and last) time ever! This place was nice in that the dolphins were not in pools but in natural ocean water tanks and they have a strong breeding program as well as a program where a portion of all entry fees... More

I came yesterday to swim with the dolphins! The staff were friendly and helpful, all spoke good English which made things easier. Compared to other places I have seen I think the area in which the dolphins swim isn't too small. The dolphins all seem happy! The price to swim with the dolphins is fair, I enjoyed my 45 mins...
