Fantastic time, highlight of our trip!

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there is no way to take your own pictures. They have a professional photographer, but what they charge for their pictures is... read more

We visited Dolphin Discovery in September 2014 on our honeymoon in Mexico. We had the most amazing time here. The staff were so friendly and very informative and we had loads of time with the animals. The dolphins are looked after exceptionally well and are not in pool water, they are in a more natural environment. It was so much... More

Mom and daughter day with dolphins, sea lions and manatees was a once in a lifetime experience. Was very pleased with the conditions that the animals were kept and cared for and liked hearing their lifespan was longer here than in the wild. Getting up close and personal with these amazing creatures was such a great opportunity that I am... More

I took my teenage sons and we did the Royal Swim package. There were three other children in our group and we were with Alejandro. I can not say enough about our trainer- he was great!!!

We booked online before travelling out. This is a must as it saves so much money. Especially if you book the memories package as this includes ten photos on a disc and one print. We were then given the option to have all of our 74 photos on disc at a very good price so we bought them. So glad... More

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there is no way to take your own pictures. They have a professional photographer, but what they charge for their pictures is highway robbery. If they asked a reasonable amount for their pictures I think every single person would buy and they would make a ton of money that... More
