Feel a little sorry for dolphins. I thought they may have a bigger swim rest area away from sight. But they do not. However fun for whole... More

Booked the royal adventure for 2 people. Was under the impression it would be just us with the dolphin and that we would be able to swim with the dolphin for the whole 50 minutes. Not the case. We went in the water with about 8 other people, and you wait for each person to do each activity with the... More

Carlos was our trainer and he was so wonderful with the Dolphins. We did the Royale Swim and it was well worth the money. We took an 8 and 9 year old. Lifetime memories made here. Loved it.

Wow! Wow! and Wow! is what I have to say about this attraction! We got to do 6 different things with the dolphins! We obtained our wetsuits and watched a short film before our actual experience. Then it was our group's turn to hit the dolphin pool. We each had an opportunity to kiss one of the two dolphins, then... More

This was my favorite adventure of my 2 week vacation. The dolphins and the manatees are so friendly. It was so much fun being pushed by the dolphins through the water and being dragged through the water while holding onto there dorsal fins. I can't believe how strong they are. It felt like I had rockets attached to my feet!... More

$40 for one picture? Not worth the money! One price over the phone, another when you come to book onsite. We were told that we were getting an additional 15 minutes with the manatees in lieu of transportation since our resort is next door, just to find out the package we purchased already included that. Very disappointed.
