Yes, the Dolphins are charming and obedient, but I was disappointed that there wasn't more focus on education and what can we done to protect them and their environment. It's the perfect opportunity to tell people what actions they can take to protect the marine environment these beautiful creatures live in. We paid 5079 pesos for 2 x the Royal... More

We went here on resort credits and upgraded the package to swim with the sea lions, manatees and dolphins. The trainers really seemed to care for the animals and do the best to ensure you have a good visit. We were wondering why it was always "Pose for the camera". We found out at the end, that they wanted $500... More

While the experience was terrific, too much of the day is used for a one hour event. Plan to spend 6 hours for this.

Swimming with the dolphins was a wonderful experience. Spending the day at Playa Mujeres was fun. It was more then I expected. I would do it again.

Whether you're going with friends, family, or a couple this excursion was a blast! I was a little skeptical, but swimming with the dolphins was very very cool! (and I'm a male in his early 20s Haha!) I took my girlfriend and it was Christmas for her! You spend an hour or so with the dolphins and the package you... More

I signed up for the swim with Manatees! It cost me about $75 including round trip transportation from hotel and a buffet lunch. I was in the water with the Manatees for close to 45 minutes! I got to feed them lettuce and interact with them. I was extremely fortunate in that I was the only one in the water... More

Came here on a Virgin Ahoy excursion so we arrived on a private charter which was a bit more civilised than a ferry. Our guides did the usual pre swim talk, kitting out in life vests etc before we did the manatee feeding, the shark swim which was a bit of a cop out as they were nurse sharks at... More

This is a must do activity. The facility is amazing, the staff is super and the dolphins are well cared for and healthy. We never felt intimidated or nervous around these wonderful creatures. The free ferry to the shopping village is another great benefit. Highly recommended.

They won't allow customers to take picture and I they are not looking forward to repeat customers. They were charging US$ 38.00/picture and around US $300 for the CD. Better offer customers a fair price for the pictures upfront and in the internet.
