Loved it!

Such a beautiful and memorable experience! I was also very happy with how well they care for the dolphins! A tad pricey but worth it!

Until we experienced the Delphinus attraction we had seen dolphin shows in various countries. This was different - we made the dolphins jump, swim and even had some time to exchange quick kisses with the two female dolphins, Frida and Marina (cannot fully recollect the name). The guide was friendly and informative and I do certainly recommend this attraction to... More

I would highly recommend the Delphinus Swim with Dolphins experience. Our 14 year old and 23 year old did the Primax4 and loved it. They spent 40 minutes with 2 other people in a small pool with a dolphin. They were taught hand signals and tricks, and each person got some one-on-one time with the dolphin. They then headed to...

We chose the Primax option, which was 2 dolphins for 4 people. It is in a very large pool with your own personal guide. Every one gets a flotation vest, so you can float while petting the dolphins. The Primax option includes a "dolphin push". Think of strapping an engine to the bottom of each foot and re-enacting the "king... More

These places are simply disgusting, there is no need for this type of 'Entertainment'. Set them free and restore your souls.

Visited Delphinus whilst on holiday earlier this year with the children and decided to try swimming with dolphins, what a day out the experience was unbelievable and the memories we will cherish forever. The staff were fantastic and couldn't be more friendly towards us, nothing was to much trouble and they made a day out really special. Would recommend to... More

Overall, this was a great excursion. We indulged in the Primax package, which includes individual (family) time with a trainer and dolphin (ie, you're not part of a big group). We got to spend quite a bit of time with our dolphin, who was a 16 year-old named Kaan. The trainer was very informative and spent a fair amount of... More

We had a group of 7 and did the boogie board package. It was such a wonderful experience. The Dolphins seemed happy and healthy. Jesus was our trainer and he was great. My only negative comment is that you can't bring a camera and I understand why because someone could scratch a dolphin and you can enjoy the experience more... More
