Instead of 149$ .thanks to the nice staff :) the kids had so much fun! But still feel bad for the Dolphins :( The only thing that really annoyed me was the ridiculous... More

Have wanted to swim with dolphins for a very long while and am so glad I did. We did the 60 minutes experience. There were six people in our group and only one dolphin which I thought was a bit sparse as we were watching other people quite a bit. However did really enjoy it and the trainers were friendly....

My husband and I LOVED this experience! Dolphins are my absolute favorite animals and getting this one on one experience with them was unforgettable. Some would say the cost is expensive, but I disagree. You're swimming with dolphins! These are highly intelligent creatures that have to be consistently trained and cared for. The veterinary costs alone must be astronomical along... More

We did the Promax (4 people only) and the only issue was we only had one dolphin to ourselves (other groups of 4 had 2). Otherwise Loved IT! One thing to know is that the cost of pictures / video is extremely expensive. All we really wanted was the video because so many of the photos were just bad pictures... More

We booked Delphinus' top package through our hotel, rather than with the tour company. We struck really lucky on the day and our party of three was joined by a nice Spanish guy, and we got to share 2 dolphins for our experience. It was awesome!!!

we did the extra fee to swim in our own smaller group, with the dolphins. We also bought the photo and DVD package. So, our day was quite expensive, but we enjoyed it. It's not the kind of experience that we can get at home!

This was really a dream came true. We went swimming with dolphins on my best friend's birthday. We did the couples dream swim so that we had more time with our dolphins. It was just us two with 2 dolphins. They were so cute. You first get to see a movie and some extra information. Then it's time for the... More

Absolutely the most expensive swim with Dolphin experience ever but we were greatly satisfied. From pick up at hotel, to the swim, a full hour with only my family and our own dolphin, trainer staying with us and entertaining the entire family, photo shoot exceptional that get sold to you after you see them. Can't say it is anything else... More
