Rodrigo, our dophin trainer, provided a great time for all of us. Everyone left very happy with the experience. Food - Average, better than our all-inclusive 4-star resort. Experience - great! Photography - absurdly expensive. Boat ride in both directions - food and drinks were included. Too bad we were put on the boat that carried the staff, not that... More

My children participated in the dolphin swim and said it was awesome! I did not have time to purchase/view photos due to time constraints. Is there a way to view the photos and/or request for purchase?

Pretty awesome experience. We were shocked at how much interaction we were given with the dolphins. Our package included a group of people (about 10), and one trainer and one dolphin. Each person had multiple one on one opportunities with the trained dolphin -- not just swimming with it, but being pushed by it, riding it and more. These are... More

We booked this excursion through our hotel and we are so glad that we did! We had such an awesome time in the water with our dolphins, that we paid a little extra to get back in the water with two of them together for some extra photos. Our dolphin expert was this cute, spunky girl that made the experience... More

Purchased the Royal Swim VIP online 2 days ahead of time. It was $545 for a family of four. The hotel planner quoted us a price of $800!!! Arrived a few minutes early where they told us to be and it was packed! Apparently they run all sorts of excursions from the one location. I'm guessing about 200 people, probably... More

Very happy with the hour we got to spend with the dolphins. I was afraid that with 10 people (we had 11) each of my family members would get time with the dolphins. Each and every person gets to do each activity and they made it a lot of fun. The BEST is the foot push! The grounds are very... More

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life!!!! The Dolphins were so sweet and we got to swim with them, pet them, & do tricks with them! The trainer "Smiley", was fantastic and energetic; he took up a lot of time with us and made the experience fun & enjoyable! You can tell he loves his job!... More

My wife and I did this attraction, Dolphin Royal Swim Plus (Sea Life Discovery). We had originally booked to do the one for Puerto Aventuras, but the catamaran portion was not available to do as they were doing maintenance on it, so our booking agent, Ana called to inform us about this and suggested this one.

While I know that Swimmimg with Dolphins is one of the most popular tour/excursion it's never been real high on my lists of must do's; however would highly recommend it now more than ever after actually having experienced for myself. The staff and trainers are great and you get to really spend alot of time interacting with these awesome creatures.
