Did this for my birthday, it was a great experience, but for the money you pay the whole experience is over way too soon as it probably last about 30min and the photos afterwards are far too expensive.

The tour itself was great. The dolphins were fun and I had a blast. When it came time to see the pictures I was shocked about how expensive the pictures were...considering how much we already paid per ticket, and they wanted more than that for pictures...very disappointed at the money grab...not to mention how rude the employees in the gift...

My wife doesn't swim and was so excited that she never realized that she was in 15 feet of water when swimming with the dolphins.

The dolphins were super fun! Great experience definitely family friendly but instructors needed a little more enthusiasm.

Went on a boat to Las Coletas and on the way saw 3 different whales! When we got there we had a wonderful day of buffet, snorkeling and paddle boarding! Great trip

5 year old loved swimming with the dolphins. She got to feed them and pet them and they swimmed all around her.
