This is a very cruel "adventure" that doesn't teach kids anything but how to be in humane to animals. Those poor dolphins. That is a horrible way to live. Please have compassion and don't participate in giving this company your money so they can continue to do this to such beautiful creatures.

We then had our 30 mins with the dolphins and a very friendly, fun and informative trainer. The whole time two "photographers" shadowed us.... More

The kids loved being in the pool with the dolphins and the provided great photos of the time in the water. The price is worth it even if it's just to get the pictures
