I had a wonderful dolphin-interactive experience with my 9 yr old daughter. Other than the wish to actually SWIM alongside a dolphin rather than stand alongside one, it was fantastic. The dolphins also seemed happy in their environment and sought people out by swimming where people were walking when not "working". Although the cove was small, we were able to... More

This was a great excursion that we did through Carnival Cruise lines. The facility was excellent, so clean and everything was extremely well organized. The dolphins were amazing and the whole experience was fun. We learnt a lot about them and had about 40 mins in the water with them. Our tour included buffet lunch which was good and an... More

My daughter and I went to Dolphinaris while visiting Cozumel. The experience was exactly as advertised, and it was FANTASTIC! We rode the dolphins, played with them, etc., and it was a once in a lifetime experience. The facility was great, the people were nice etc. However, it fits the bill as a tourist trap when it comes to money.... More

We loved this excursion. My son and I were the only ones with the trainer and we had the dolphin all to ourselves. I'm not sure why this was since the other two groups had at least 8-10 people in each group but I think it may have to do with the fact that I booked this outside of the... More

My family loved this place so much that we've been twice while on our Carnival Cruise! Such an amazing experience, especially for animal lovers. Definitely a once (or twice) in a lifetime opportunity! You won't get to do this in the states. I would suggest to bring an extra pair of clothes and an extra towel.

The swim and ride at Dophinaris was an amazing experience! I booked online for $53. . The swim alone was was $75 but they had a promotion going on for 30% off with a FREE upgrade to be able to get a belly ride from the dolphin. . Look for online promotions from their website.
