Protected from the open ocean, I felt totally safe entering the dolphin enclosure. The trainers were terrific, the dolphins well trained and seemed to love their trainers. It was an amazing experience, and all ages were accommodated. The snorkeling was also protected from the open ocean with a wire fence was great as well - lots of large rays, pretty... More

This was my favorite shore excursion in Cozumel! The low cost included transportation to and from our ship, all the food and beverages we wanted, swimming with the dolphins (40 minutes in the water), and snorkeling. This was the highlight of my trip to Cozumel! I plan to go back with my granddaughter!

We were blown out of our scuba dive because of weather and booked this excursion as a consolation. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We spent 40 minutes in the water with the Dolphins and all 8 of us were amazed. The staff was very professional. This is a great experience for children and adults. Not... More

The swim with the Dolphins was excellent. The dolphin trainers were knowledgable and very helpful. You get to touch the Dolphins as they swim by, shake 'hands', hug and kiss, and then go for a belly ride. All in all, in takes about 40 minutes for a group of around 10. The people in the group who couldn't swim were... More

My 11 y.o. son and I arrived here in October 2014 and decided to try the "dolphin encounter". I'd heard about this concept before but never thought it could become so life confirming. Came with not so many expectations. But when we were first in a bassin with the two dolphins Marina and her 4 y.o daughter we were stunned.... More

This was an absolutely wonderful excursion. I have a hard time with dolphins being in enclosures, but did not here. We were the first group to arrive on 11/19/14 and watched the trainers interacting with the dolphins. You could tell they were both very attached to each other. The dolphins were very trusting with the trainers as the let them... More

Swimming with the dolphins is a once in a lifetime experience. The groups were small, so you had plenty of time with the dolphins, and the staff was exceptional! They were very encouraging with the kids in our group who were a little tentative about the experience, but everyone left with a smile on their face! The facility is wonderful,... More
