We took my 8 year old daughter and did the 3 hour package, with interaction, a foot push, boogie board ride, and dorsal fin pull. The trainers were very good, especially Alexis, who was awesome!

Trying to sell pictures for $300+ taking advantage of the fact you would want one. Was a fun experience but to finish the day having to haggle a ridiculous price is just something you don't want to do after a fun day.

I like the experience of swimming with the dolphins, howerever there was not much time to do things with them, and the pictures are very expensive.

Very exciting dolphins encounter. Discussed trip with local dive tour before visiting, although they would prefer the animals to be free, they did say the dolphins are breeding and kept in sea water. They are definitely being fed well.

Excellent. I booked from the UK on the Dolphinaris website and saved 40% plus free upgrade from gold to trainer for a day. We have swam with Dolphins before but this was amazing, a full day with the dolphins. There was only 4 of us in the group, the Dolphins were really well looked after.

It was a very good experience, kids loved it. the only issue is the price they ask for photos is ridiculous, its more expensive then the dolphin swim.
