My family and I booked the AM package with the dolphins. This includes 4 different activities. When we arrived there I mentioned that I had just found out I was expecting (our booking agent said this was fine as I'm very early and not even to the point of "showing"). They told me I was not allowed. I have been... More

We went to Dolphinaris with a group of 11 people while staying at the hard rock resort. After arriving we were not allowed to take cameras with us however, some tourists that were not partaking were taking pictures of there children from the overlooking deck. the actual interaction with the dolphins was very limited and almost like an assembly line....

We did the "Trainer for a day" package, which costs just about as much as the other packages but comes with 4-5x the amount of dolphin interaction. If you love dolphins, you have to do the trainer for a day. It ended with a scuba experience where you got to put on a mask and regulator to see and hear... More

This place was very clean and friendly. The interaction with the dolphins was heavenly!!! The only negative, was the puffy life vests. When we did the snorkeling, we couldn't get under the water enough to really experience it. I wish we could have temporarily taken them off. The only other negative was the very descriptive video about the breeding process.... More

1st time with dolphins and loved it! Photos were a bit high for cost though. Depending a the package you bought. We had the basic swin with dolphins and got everything we wanted out of the encounter with dolphins.

So...we booked the experience through our hotel and we were told that my 5 year old daughter who is 44" would be able to do the "belly-ride" all by herself. We were also told that my 3.5 year old son would be able to do the experience for free but would have to ride on my back for the "belly-ride".... More

Each are entitled to their opinions, and I would prefer these beautiful creatures not be captured...but they are there and we can't change that. With that said my kids (11 and 9) made a lifetime of memories on their day with the dolphins. The staff educated the kids and truly got them excited. To get up close, touch them, swim... More

I am against the capture and use of dolphins for entertainment, yet my nieces wanted to swim with them. We were a large group, yet only the 2 children were going to swim with the dolphins. The price was adequate, yet when we were signing up the lady said the manager will charge us $15 per person to "VIEW!" I... More
