We did the one-day dolphin training experience and it was fantastic. The day was divided up into time in the pool with the dolphins followed by some facts in a room especially for our group.

Well what can I say, it was really cool swimming with the dolphins but overall this trip was a major disappointment. To start with we paid around $150USD per person, and for that we got a half day experience with a "open bar" and a "meal". Swimming with the dolphins was really cool and we were allowed to touch them... More

We thought you would really get to swim with dolphins but you get one not even full lap with a dolphin and then you get to kiss the dolphin which is really only so they can sell you a ridiculously over priced picture. We used our hotel credit so only paid the tax, and i'm happy because I would of... More

Our 9 year old daughter always wants to swim with dolphins on our vacations (so far the best being Ocean World in Puerto Plata and Ocho Rios Jamaica) so after hearing rave reviews and understanding this was "the place" to try it, we thought why not. Well after the experience, we wondered why we wasted our time and money. The... More

My 9 year old daughter and I did the $82 version where you hold onto the dolphins fins while they swim upside down. You spent an hour in the pool. Very cool experience. The photos and videos you can buy afterward are spendy. Definitely do some negotiating. They wanted $365 for all the photos and the video. We ultimately paid... More

The short time I had with the dolphins was great but the in between time took forever and was definitely over priced. We did the three activities, which is a better price deal overall but expensive! The least it could have included was one picture. Instead at the end the photographers stalk you to buy photos. I felt obligated so... More
