I loved the manatees and sea lions but the push, push, push to make us buy pictures (and you can't take any of your own) and the whole time has nothing to do with enjoying the animals and all to do with posing for photos, really a disappointment.

Paid for a package deal online before we left for our trip. Showed up a the specified time. Waited 45 minutes to check in. Once we had our wristbands, we were on our own to figure out, lockers, food, and everything else the package included. The swim with the dolphins is fun. They pull you through the water. They push...

Employees were great, we traveled with Olympus Tours and had a great time! Only downside is the outrageous price for photos, but the trip was totally affordable so it balanced out

We took the medium package, it was nice and amusing. The dolfin was great. The VIP worth the money, PERFECT service from the waiters. the food was OK, nothing special. You can easily do a full day there. The only bad thing it's the price of the photos, Exaggerated!!! Other comments here said it too. I thing that if it... More

We visited Dolphin Dicovery in Mexico a week ago and we had the best time ever. Since we booked our holiday with Thomsons on the app they had a dolphin training trip. Once we got to resort it wasnt on the trip list so this is something Thomsons had to book seperatly for us. When we arrived at the island... More

We had a nice day with the dolphins and nurse sharks (the rays stayed burried in the sand during our time so we didn't get to see them). We upgraded our ticket to include snorkeling. It came with access to the VIP lounge for all-you-can-eat food and drinks. We've done several snorkeling trips but this one was no good. Too... More

From the minute we arrived to be taken by boat to the Island until arriving back we were treated superbly. At 1st we thought the price of the trip was a bit expensive, however what you receive for the money is amazing value. The 1 hour interactive experience with the 2 dolphins was amazing and would have paid double for... More

We did the $190 manatee and sea lion package and it was great, especially the dolphins and manatees. However, we were in a group of four and for the pictures it was either $40 usd a shot or $80 a person for each person's pictures. So $160 a couple...for a cd. It used to be about $50 which included a... More
