I have to start by saying that I've loved dolphins for as long as I can remember, and I have always wanted to swim with them. When vacationing at the Grand Bahia (awesome place, by the way), I jumped at the chance to get in the water with the dolphins they have there. We booked a reservation just for me,... More

The experience was "Top Notch" for my 11 year old daughter. She did the "Trainer for a Day" and loved every second of it. At the end of the day, Dont be afraid to haggle with the people that sell the pictures and videos. There is alot of "wiggle" room.

My daughter and I did the trainer for the day program and we loved every single minute of it! The dolphins were so cute and the trainers were funny! I understand why we had to shower before entering the pool each time, but we were all burnt at the end of the day. That's my only negative comment. Everything else... More

I visited the Dolphinaris on 14 June 2014 whilst staying at Bahia Principe Sian Kaan and I have to say it was the best experience I have had in a long while. My husband arranged for me to be a ‘Trainer for a Day’ which is the top package they offer. Although it may seem expensive, personally I feel that... More

This was my first experience with dolphins. I was with 4 others and 2 were children (age 6 and 8). The trainers had good control of the dolphins and made me feel safe and comfortable. My son aged 6 was not a great swimmer, but he was able to get his ride with the dolphin without having to swim to... More

Yet, within minutes of paying for my dolphin swim on Friday, 20th June, this card was used to make 3 fraudulent transactions. It does not take a rocket scientist to work out that Dolphinaris... More
