My husband and I went to the Dolphinaris in Cozumel expecting to have a great time. I paid as a full participant. He paid a pretty hefty fee just to be an observer. They told hubby he couldn't stand where he could actually see me. (Translate that to mean, "We won't let you take her picture despite paying $50 to... More

We booked this experience through Disney Cruise line. We visited in May. We went with the VIP experience & it was great. Lots of personal time with the dolphin. We were able to pet her, fin ride, rub her belly. I would highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience.

We booked the VIP experience thru Carnival while on a cruise. The VIP made all the difference. I am sure the normal dolphin swim and ride experience is outstanding, but the VIP made it over the top. Hands down worth every penny. Great employees throughout the facility. Great food and layout. The actual dolphin experience was breath taking.

Having been swimming with dolphins before, we were not expecting anything different. But we were pleasantly surprised! At Dolphinaris we had more time in the water with the dolphins and interacted more than at another facility in the States a few years ago. The whole experience was thrilling...would definitely do it again!

We did this as an excursion on our Carnival cruise, and it is a must do activity. We only chose this because it was something our three year old could do, and we thought she might enjoy it.

I loved the experience. I was only in Cozumel for the day on a Carnival cruise, and we decided to do this excursion. At this venue, you get to swim with the dolphins for about an hour. You can then stay at the resort for as long as you wish. They have unlimited alcohol and beverages, a lunch buffet, and... More

Like most other reviews say everything was awesome except the photos. We were on a budget so it was really upsetting that they charged so much for photos.
