We had an amazing time with Jodco the trainer and Simba the dolphin- the trainer answered all our questions and Simba put on an amazing show! During the show we had a photographer which... More

Love swimming with the dolphins! We have been there 5 times since 2005 always go for the 2-dolphin experience which is limited to a small group of up to 8 people (or maybe 10). The trainers are all terrific and we have always had most enjoyable experiences. Our parents (70s & 80s) tried the bigger group dolphin package which is... More

I have always wanted to swim with dolphins. When we were able to enjoy this excursion from our hotel I was IN. Despite it being a "chilly" day, I found this to be the most incredible experience. The dolphins are healthy and strong and the area they live in is very clean and the staff is incredible. You need to... More

great time for the kids and adults, we went back 2 more times during our stay. $42 for the whole days includes food, drinks and snorkeling. Chefs were amazing - pool by the rooftop was very relaxing. Oh and the all you can eat buffet had an amazing selection.

We recently booked through first choice for the vip experience. At first I thought it was quite expensive but as the day went on it was well worth what we had paid.We took the catamaran from Cancun to the Island which took about 40 minutes which was enjoyable in itself.We had drinks and food on board which were all included.We...

Experienced this using credits from Moon Palace Resort. Overall, very good excursion. Purchasing photos very expensive. We had a family of 5 and they would not take any group photos of us - everyone individually. Would have purchased more if we could have had the entire family in the photos. Long wait for everyone to experience time with the dolphins.

You can swim with the dolphins or the sea lions (or were they seals? (I loved Madeline!) plenty to do and see - and experience that you will certainly remember -- something you have to do at least once in your lifetime.

I'm a nine year old girl who had a dream to swim with Dolphins and have the picture to show my kids when I grow up and that never happened. I went to the Dolphin Discovery and first of all they say you get 40 minutes to swim with Dolphins and you barely get to touch the Dolphin for 5... More

Dolphins are cool until you have to kiss them. I took my 7 year old daughter to Dolphin Discovery on August 16th to do just the "Dolphin Encounter" and she had a pretty good time. The marine experts are wonderful and friendly, but I did feel like I did a lot of waiting around. Even in the water, you are... More

This place is great if you want to see Dolphins in a freer environment. I felt even though in captivity the dolphins where happy we got a hug, kiss and foot push.. very interactive. We also got to feed the Mantees which was amazing and swim with the sharks. Only downside to this experience the photos are stupidly expensive and... More
