My husband was desperate to swim with dolphins and we booked the silver package through Thomson. All the parks provide free transport with the ticket which is great. The pools seemed small for so many dolphins but they all seemed happy enough and most had been born in captivity - I'm no animal rights expert. The handler was great, very... More

This was my second experience with swimming with the dolphins. Our dolphin handler was really good, he explained a lot about the dolphins, which we all found interesting. The checking in and getting to the water went very smoothly (we were staying at the Occidental Grand Xcaret, so it was an easy 5 minute walk). During the interaction, I felt... More

We booked the trip to Delphinus via the tour desk at the Azul Sensatori. They had a strange system where they'd charge you the full amount for the trip (Primax) of $169 then give you a refund on your return of $40. Three of us opted for the trip though it was mostly for the benefit of my 8 year... More

I had the best time at this place having never done this before. The staff were just great (I think her name was Margarette) and gave us a great in-sight into the Dolphins life there. We got to hold their flippers, allow them to roll, we got pushed along by our feet. Expensive photos at the end, but you can... More

This was truly one of the best experiences of my life! One 'to do' from my bucket list ticked. My daughter and I booked this through our Thomson rep and we opted for the silver package which gives an hour in the water with the dolphins and up to 4 people per session. Luckily for us we booked later in... More

We had 4 people in our group and we spent about 1 hr in the water. I am not a very good swimmer, but I can honestly say it was well worth the money. Photo packages are expensive, but you get 3 choices. We didn't take much money with us, but they delivered to our hotel. Seems a very caring,... More
