This was definitely a neat experience. We did the primax where you only share the dolphin with a group of 4 although they take the dolphin away like 5 times to push other folks. That is the best Bart when two Dolphins come behind you and push your feet. Make sure your suit is on tight cause it will fly... More

We swam with dolphins & Manatees here, I don't mention the nurse sharks as that bit was a bit boring, they just lay on the bottom. The Manatees were just lovely, we fed them lettuce & stroked them. The Dolphins though, wow what an experience just do it & go for the Royal Swim as they lift you up by... More

We will never forget our couples dream swim at Delphinus Xcaret...it was incredible! We got to spend 60 minutes in the water with two dolphins. At first we were a little nervous but Margareta, our trainer, made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. We got to spend a good amount of time petting the dolphins to help us get used... More

Really good experience, me and my 4 sons visited Delphinus. Amazing to get so close to the dolphins, lots of interaction with the dolphins, different tasks carried out so you have a really close experience. Only downside was the price of photographs/dvd/memory stick.

9 of us swam with the dolphins and it was great that they only allow 4 people per dolphin, unless you specifically ask for more, which we did as there were 9 of us so one group had 5 but we had to sign to accept this. Photos are expensive $39 for one, there are packages available from around $190... More
