I was told by the tour woman that the dolphins were free, and as naive as I was, I believed we were getting into the ocean and with luck see some dolphins. I`ve learn they don`t live as long they supposed to, and are deprived of their natural instincts cause of the interaction with human beings, and for being in... More

We went to Isla Mujeres to swim with the Dolphins and had an amazing time. We spent 60 minutes with the dolphins and trainer. The trainer educated us on the Dolphins and we had some one on one time with the Dolphins. What amazing mammals. I recommend this excursion, I have been reluctant to do it; I’ve heard the bad...

We had a great time. A dream come true trip. I suggest Dramamine before your swim if you tend to get motion sickness because you bob around like a cork with the life jacket. The pictures are insanely expensive and they refuse to let you get 2 people in one shot, although I understand it would be unsettling for the... More

This is our 2nd trip to Dolphin Discovery @ Isla Mujeres, and we were not disappointed. Holding dolphins like a baby in the water, riding dolphins by holding the dorsal fins, and just having tons of time in the water with these amazing mammals was worth every penny. It seemed like the dolphins were well cared for and like preservation... More

this was amazing! They don't let you take you own pictures so that's kinds of a scam IMO, because they want you to buy their expensive photos no video is taken. But the tour was great and out trainer Emilio was awesome. Picaso the dolphin is a ROCKSTAR!

It's a wonderful place to swim and play with Dolphins. The price of the photos (you can't take your camera with you) is prohibitive. Buy the Royal Swim Plan and you will be sure that it's a good investment.

We went with a group of five couples and had a ball. We purchased the Manatee/Sea Lion, Dolphin & Shark/Sting Ray package. The manatees and sea lion was fun, very interesting. The dolphin experience was so exciting and fun! Several of us have done the "Dolphin excursions" in Hawaii and let me tell you, this blows them away! We will... More

It's a nice experience to have. If you want to take photos with the dolphins, be prepared because you can't bring your camera with you to the tanks and the photo packages are expensive. I've bought the ticket on a "combo" with the Garrafón park, but today I would not do it, since (at that time) you only had 2... More
