I've done other dolphin experiences and this was by far the best. We were a group of 4 which was fabulous as it was just us with our dolphins. After you get your lockers and watch a short DVD - the interaction lasted about an hour, was well organised. The foot pushes were amazing. The staff were very knowledgeable and... More

i booked this through our holiday company for my 11 year old son and I and paid nearly £120 as it was endorsed by the holiday company and included transport there and back. The swim with the dolphins was amazing, however, our trip was utterly spoilt when our driver decided he couldn't be bothered to take us back to our... More

An experience not to be missed. The whole morning was excellent. Swimming with these wonderful creatures is something we will remember for the rest of our lives. The 'footpush' is something I never thought I would have the nerve to do but the trainers do am amazing job with the animals and give your the faith you need to do... More

As part of the resort credit from Hard Rock Riviera Resort, we took this excursion Boogie with the Dolphins. Last two years we did a similar activity in Moon Palace resort and we must say the experience at Delphinus was much better. More interaction with the Dolphins and smaller group (10 people). The staff was professional and nice. My autistic... More

We did the package just with 4 people and it was amazing! When we arrived they did try and get us to upgrade but it was a little bit expensive. We then went and got changed - you had your own locker with a key. Then you walk down to the hut and get a lifejacket and watch a intro... More

This was an amazing experience to be able to swim alongside dolphins. They are incredible animals. We booked through the Hard Rock Riviera Maya. Everything worked out perfectly. We had transportation there, lockers, lifejackets, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. They take pictures of your time with the dolphins to purchase later on. Yes, it was expensive. $285, but...

Went with our two kids, ages 15&17. We really enjoyed the experience, as swimming with the dolphins was on our bucket list. We paid a little extra to just have the four of us in the group, and it was worth it. The dolphins pushed us each by our feet, and that was a lot of fun. I had sticker... More

This review is for Delphinus only, not the Xcaret park. We made the mistake of missing our scheduled pickup from our hotel so we paid for round-trip taxis to and from the park - wound up more economical than the $12pp they were asking for. When we arrive, they tell us that our session already started and wasted 10 minutes... More

Went with my two daughters (6 and 7). Did the package where you get propelled thru the water by 2 dolphins (4 per group) but it was just us 3. They put in a great deal of education into the program I learned a lot. My kids LOVED it. I tried to tip our instructor (Samantha? Sandra?) but she was... More

We did a 75 min experience with the dolphins. 1st time I have done it. I was a bit dubious, didn't want to do it if the dolphins enclosures were small and unkept but the place is lovely and the dolphins are well looked after and appear very happy. However the cost of the photos and videos are way to... More
