We visited Discovery Cove in Orlando a few years ago and were disappointed with the limited time with the dolphins so we booked an excursion here and were pleased. It was less expensive than Discovery Cove and included more actual time with the dolphins. We booked the Royal VIP with a trip to Garrafon Park. The ferry departed at 9:00,... More

A little expensive but the family loved it. Do the snorkel tour you won't regret it. Pics of the wife "supermanning" with 2 dolphins pushing her feet was priceless.

I went with my friends to the island and we loved it! We did not know that the buffet was included so we are right before we went but we would have waited because the food looked so good! The VIP lounge was amazing for the price $109 which included the dolphins. Our trainer, emel, was great and really made... More

We really enjoyed the interaction with the sea life discovery plus but didn't feel like there was enough time to just play with the dolphins. It was more like do a trick, smile for the camera, and NEXT. The photos were very expensive. But overall it was a great value food and all equipment is included, and the kids (9... More

This place charges you $109 per person for the cheapest dolphin swim option, which says you get to swim & meet the dolphin for 45 mins. What actually happens is you get to pet the dolphin maybe twice and pose for a photo with the dolphin (which they will later try to sell to you for $175+...RIDICULOUS) For the rest... More

if you or your kids want to swim with dolphins, this park is okay. although it is expensive, it is worth the experience. the only reason i don't give this more stars is that its connected to garrafon. don't be talked into the all day wristband for food, drink, sports, etc. its a tourist trap and not worth the money....

It is a fantastic thing to do although you need to be able to swim quite well. It is a bit expensive but if it is something you want to do, then do it. just to watch is a bit boring as things are too far away to really see much. We combined with the zip lining and to do... More

It was very fun. We got to swim with 4 manatees and feed them lettuce for 30 minutes. A group of maybe ten of us. The dolphin portion was a group of 6. We did the dolphin push, dolphin ride, fin touch, dolphin kiss, the whole package. I went with my boyfriend but we skipped the couples part because the... More

The rides with the Dolphins especially when they push you from your feet & force you up & out of the water is an amazing experience.
