Me and my partner did enjoy this excursion, we liked the dolphin swim and there was a lot more interaction with these beautiful animals then we've had before, the 2 of them pulling you out the water is fun, but we just didn't have the same feeling as we did when we were at discovery cove, the manatees are very...

Wow what an awesome time! My cousin & I was just there this morning and we had an amazing time. It was both our first time swimming with dolphins. We purchased the sea of life package through our travel agent. We got to swim with dolphins and swim with the manatees. We also got the buffet included as well into... More

We went to Dolphin Discovery as part of the Virgin Sea Life excursion. The day included the three interactions, lunch and soft drinks, then a two hour catamaran trip including soft drinks / beers, and cost $179USD per adult. Having swam with dolphins on a previous holiday I wondered how this would compare. Well this has to be one of... More

We booked the Royal Swim with the dolphins in the UK. It was a birthday treat for our sons 13th birthday. Simply put the day was brilliant we got a photo package with book and DVD at the end. This was a little pricey after the cost of the trip but worth it in the end and product was really... More

The interaction with the dolphins was great! However there is no need to charge do much for photos! We had to leave with no photos as they wanted $37 US for one photo or $128 US for all with nothing in between! We went on and ATV adventure and received all photos and a video on a USB drive for...

Great experience. Absolutely loved the place. The staff was so nice. Totally enjoyed our time playing with the dolphins. I would highly recommend it to all. Definitely would go back and do again. Maybe try one of their other locations.

This wasn't the experience we expected. We were rushed outside and then left standing on the deck where we were told someone would come and help us with our life jackets. After 15 minutes of watching everyone else get in the water and begin their experience. We finally had to go find someone to assist us. Our group started with... More

Fabulous gold package with the dolphins, half day swim. Staff were great, everything lovely and clean. Photos were reasonably priced but also great quality. We were told by reception an earlier collection time than was correct but they were very quick to put this right!

Did the Royal Swim with the Dolphins. $149 dollars for adults, $89 for kids. Book online before you go. Same price, Great experience, but pictures expensive. You have to do it once in your lifetime.
