I was very nervous at first, but my husband Dave kept telling me not to worry its going to be fun. He constantly assured me he will be by my side the entire time, so it will be fine. Once in the water with the Dolphins and after touching them, swimming with them, kissing my husband while holding them,,it was... More

Dolphins activites are a once in a lifetime thing. While we enjoyed the trainers and dolphins, the whole picture package is so expensive and everything staged to get more pictures is very disappointing. If the photo packages were reasonable I would give more stars.

Up close and personal interaction with Dolphins and Manatees. Loved "boogie board push," and "pectoral fin pull." 3 different packages, a bit pricy. We did the middle package "Swim Adventure," $130 a person. Top package, "Royal Swim" was $180. You can get money coupons for discount if you take a tour of Dreams Tulum resort. Overall, great "must-do/bucket list" experience.

Kids loved swimming with the dolphins. Great to walk from the resort and check out all the marine life at the marina. When we go back, we won't do the experience again but it is a great one time activity.

Great experience and well over an hour spent with the dolphins with them doing various different tasks. Fantastic trainer. Experience was spoilt by the photographs. There was no fixed price list and it seems you paid whatever you negotiated with the photographer. If there was a fixed price list on the wall I can understand but it should not be... More
