It was wonderful, after we straightened out the mistake Apple made in booking it, it was wonderful. The Dolphins were great, the trainers funny, helpful, knowledgable, and worked with everyone, especially our 4 year old so he could do as much as he could at his age. Best part of the trip

Great experience at Dolphin Discovery in Puerto Aventuras! I suggest you upgrade when you get there as we did to the Dolphin Royal Swim as the best part, the "push" is only part of this package. Every activity with the dolphins was fun but the most excitement for all of the participants in our group was floating with our legs... More

My son-in-law and 2 grandchildren, a boy aged 14 and his sister 6, had the experience of a lifetime! What fun to watch them lifted into the air by their feet by the dolphins. They learned more that day than any tv show.

Great price from the company working in the hotel to go and swim with the dolpins and had a great time. The Dolpin trainer we were assigned knew his stuff and we had a Mum and her 26 day old baby in our area. It is a large marina and there are various other sealife creatures there too. It is... More

Very nice experience...I just kind of wish I never went on the principle that sometimes you see the dolphins at the gate keeping them from being free and swimming away in the ocean. I have to say that made me sad.

We we were there when the Nat. Geographic was there filming a Baby dolphin that was newly born. So you know the Dolphins and other... More

It is worth it to get the package where you get to be superman with dolphins pushing you up into the air. So cool. Feeding the manatees with great too.
