I loved the dolphins, they are truely an amazing creatures. They really give you an amazing show to watch. The only thing i didn't like was that the pictures and videos are way too expensive, and you're not allowed to take your cam with you, so you end up paying for the video and pictures. But its a nice picture... More

This was amazing, my 15 year old daughter loved the interaction in the pool and my 22 month old loved kissing and hugging the dolphins.

We booked this as a shore excursion while we were on a cruise with our family (2 adults and 4 kids). We didn't book through the ship, as you can typically save money by doing so, and this was no exception. Shore excursions are always a bit of a gamble, but this was such a pleasant surprise. The staff was... More

We went for the dolphin swim and stayed for the water slides. The park is not like the ones we have in the States, but was nice. My 5 year old had his first water slide experience and he loved it. I like that he was required to wear a life jacket, even though I went down the slide with... More

This was part of a sweepstakes that we won. The interaction with the dolphins was a lot of fun. We danced with them, kissed them, took a belly ride and they also pushed us on a boogie board. I was amazed at what they were able to train these dolphins to do. After I kissed the dolphin the trainer asked... More

We took our 2 and a half old boy to swim with dolphins, unfortunately he was too young so gave us an alternative called dolphin encounter. This was fantastic he got to feed the dolphin kiss hug and dance. Memorable day

We had a blast at the waterslides! We did not do the dolphin encounter, we went specifically for the slides. Some of them were pretty intense! We really enjoyed the ones where you go down on a tube. The small covered slides were a little bit scary but all around a fun day! A bit expensive though. We paid $75... More
