Dolphin Swim was Amazing. We swam with Jaku and his instructor Diego. He learned a lot about this animal. He is really friendly and smart. We did the Dolphin Ride package. We got to pet, wave, sing, and ride, shake hand and kiss the dolphin. Like I said before it was amazing. The employees were open to answer question about... More

The best day of our holiday, swimming with the dolphins at Delphinus River Maya, Mexico. This experience wasn't cheap and they definitely hit you hard for the photo's, but we loved every minute of the full hour we had with two beautiful dolphins. The female, 'Honey' (the lighter grey) was 22 years old and the male, 'Bosch' (the darker grey)... More

Had the choice of several Dolphin swims, must recommend Delphinus. Did silver swim full hour with 2 dolphins, interaction, feeding, stroking, kissing and finally foot push, tremendous. Instructor Han was excellent with Cab and another dolphin . Highly recommend.

I took my two daughters for the experience of their lives. The hotel we were staying in did not wish us to go to the Swim with Dolphins attraction on site, as the Dolphins were in effectively a chlorinated swimming pool there. We went to Delphinus instead and had a wonderful time. Seemingly man made, but made to look more... More

When you buy the swimming with the dolphins it is sold together a entrance to the Wet And Wild without having the option to only swim with the dolphins. In dolphins pool area is not allowed to enter with cameras so, get ready to have to pay more to buy the photos (very, very, very expensive). In the most is... More

This was an amazing day that our family will never forget. We were in the water with the Dolphins for 45 mins and it was simply wonderful being this close to the Dolphins. We didn't realise the photos were so expensive. £180 for a usb stick with the photos their photographer took, plus a cd of the video they filmed... More
