This has been on my bucket list forever and I was not disappointed. What wonderful gentle creatures they are. I am not a swimmer, but still thoroughly enjoyed this. You are given a life jacket which totally keeps you afloat. We swam with them, shook fins with them, tickled them, got kisses from them and got foot pushed through the... More

We paid for the Primus package that included 2 dolphins and no more than 4 people. The dolphins swam around you and you got to pet them. You got to kiss, shake fins, and a foot push where two dolphins propel you across the water - very cool! The dolphins also did tricks like sing, splash, and simulate a whirlpool... More

The animals are loved and wonderful to be with. The "baby" (5 months old) was in the pool with us and while we were asked not to touch her, she kept comming up and bumping us for pets. Expect to get hit up for an outragous photo package. They start at $150 for the stills, but can be talked down... More

We had a great time with the dolphins and their trainer Dana. We liked the tricks and everyone had fun. The pictures are expensive, but our group of 6 split the bill for them and the videos.

We paid $169 each for our kids to have the primus 4 package, so was just 4 people with one dolphin. My kids loved the experience, however were a little disappointed no dorsal tow int this package. If you compare with Dolphin Discovery you can do basically the same as the Primus 4 but with extras including the dorsal tow... More

Like you, I read a lot of reviews for this attraction before booking it. The main criticism seems to be the price of the photos etc. we decided this was a "Bucket List" opportunity and booked the "couples swim" package. Just the wife and I, with our own dolphin and trainer for an hour. On arrival we checked in at... More

mostly a great experience, but watch how close you get to the adolescent dolphins. My fiancé was accidentally slapped on the bottom of her foot by one at the very end of our excursion. It would be a higher review had that not happened.

They really do love their dolphins. it was an amazing experience.It really shows how clever the dolphins are, The optional photo and video package is very worth while, we've watched it several times already.

This was a great experience. Pictures are pricey so be prepared if you want a keepsake. All in all was worth it. The dolphin trainers are very knowledgeable and friendly.
