The pictures prices are outrageous! 155 dollars for 12 pics?? almost 300 for all pics and video?! And the worst part was that the guide told us that its avaliable on the net but 3 dollars more expensive. When we entered the site later, we discovered that its much more cheap than what we have told! Trying to manipulate people... More

I visited here with my two friends yesterday, due to my friends had already swam with the dolphins, they sat & watched. It was my first time swimming with the dolphins & i loved it. I would defiantly do it again sometime! I done a variety of activities with the dolphin, which included; kissing, patting, & doing the foot glide... More

At first I was very nervous to swim but all the trainers put you at ease they are all very friendly, very professional and you can't tell they really respect the Dolphins. Worth every penny!

We have previously swam with dolphins in Florida (and Mexico for me!) BUT this place was phenomenal. We had the silver experience so a full hour in with the dolphins, you arrived and we were given a free tshirt each, then shown to where you could store your belongings and then onto a briefing room. Very quick briefing telling you... More

Great time - would advise a hat if you're prone to sunstroke as there is no shade available while interacting with the dolphins

Not sure where to begin. It is kind of like a nature/old town/rodeo/water park Universal Studios kind of place. A enclosed park, but sooo big. Started off by touring in the old churches (hot up top, cool under ground), then went for a underground type river tube ride with a snorkle...this took 1-1/2 hours and was so fun (not to... More

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
