An excellent very enjoyable experience.My wife was the one who particularly wanted to go and I am not a great swimmer.However lifejackets are available and our instructor Jose went out of his way to involve me. It is a very attractive facility being in a marina setting.It was nice to see the dolphins in a habitat that is not a... More

I had a really great time, the trainers did a wonderful job of explaining all the steps. They do a good job of keeping everyone involved and having fun!

We chose (prior to arrival) to do the one a 5 minute walk away. When we arrived, we upgraded from the least expensive experience, to the one with the foot push. The entire experience... More

This gives you and the dolphins a lot of time to spend together. Expecting this usual half hour "touch and go" we were surprised about... More

If I had a bucket list this would have been on it. This was the highlight of my trip. I will go back to swim with the dolphins every chance I get!

We loved swimming w/the Dolphins & feeding the Manatees. It was the best spent money of our vacaton. The photos that they took of us were well worth the cost. Would highly recommend this to all.
