We went for the 30 minute (v. 45 minute) package, which was $99 (v. $149) at the park. I suspect that the more expensive package has a few extras/fewer people per dolphin, but if you have small kids with you (ours were 4 and 5), the 30 minute package was more than plenty. It actually was 45 minutes in the... More

Swimming with dolphins is probably gonna be one of the greatest experiences in your life - this fact proved to be true for us, but sadly the Delphinus crew did not want us to bring home the memories in form of pictures and videos unless we paid a total sum of 309 usd for the complete material on a DVD....

Booked through Thompson silver experience just right, got T-shirt and 45 mins in the water with 2 dolphins we got in and up close watched the Dolphins and joined in their tricks, best was the footpush at the end. You get to view all of the shots taken and are offered options to purchase not cheap but a must have... More

This trip didn't start off too well. Seemed very busy and disorganised and we were worried that we would be in a large group with little chance of seeing a dolphin. But what a surprise when we finally got to the swim - my husband, my 4 year old son and I were with an instructor on our own with... More

This was an amazing activity, and I loved that it was attached to our resort (The Occidental Grand XCaret). It was worth every penny for the Prima experience with the dolphins, and I wish I had taken my 3 1/2 year old, because she would have loved it as well! The only downside was that we paid $242 for pictures,... More

One of the best set ups I have seen for swimming with dolphins and the best thing is only 4 people per dolphin. Perfect time, wonderful memories. Just beware you need a 2nd mortgage to buy photos and dvd.

What an amazing experience, We had 45 minutes in the water with 2 Dolphins, and we danced with them, stroked them, had them dive over us :-) and also got pushed through the water by them. We have some wonderful photos and Video of the session, which are taken by their photographers. You don't have to buy them, but we... More

Once you get through the rigmarole of your "orientation" and in the water, it is a spectacular experience. Cab was our girl and she was a delight. We were a group of 4 and had about an hour in the water. We did the dolphin push in addition to lots of other activities with her. Our trainer was very informative... More
