Great for family fun. Trainers explain everything before starting the tour. Kids love it. Do the swim with the dolphin package, expensive but very worth of your hard-earned money. Facilities are good, they will provide you with free towels at the end so don't bother to bring your own towel. Only negative comment is that you are not allowed to... More

This is my second visit to the Dolphon Adventure. I did not disappoint at all. This time I got to take my daughter, son in law and two grandchildren. The trainers are amazing with the dolphins and swimmers. They tell you everything you need to know about the dolphin you are interacting with. The look on my family's faces was... More

So happy this was one of the adventures we decided to do. Just to see the kids faces light up when the dolphins kissed them, (as well as the adults) was well worth the price of the adventure. Hats off to the staff as well. It was an extremely pleasant experience.

We did the Dolphin Swim through our resort. It was a simple meet & greet. A small amount of us stood on a platform, was able to give the dolphin a belly rub, she gave us a ride around the pool & it was optional to have her take you for a dive 16' feet down. I chose not to... More

My mom and I went to swim with the dolphins while on a trip to Puerto Vallarta. What an experience we had. The head of the program was our trainer and the love he has for the animals makes the experience worth every minute. We participated in the signature swim. There was only 4 of us in the water, so...

If you haven't tried swimming with the dolphins, you should. It is a lot of fun especially for the kids.

It was a great day. The dolphin encounter was amazing and well done. We bought the picture package and even though it was fairly expensive the photos were amazing and a once in a lifetime keepsake. The slide area was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast. The water in the slide area seemed dirty at the... More

This was my nine year old son's first experience with dolphins. Our trip to the area was March, 2014. I took the advice of another TripAdvisor rather and left my camera behind and was very pleased I did! The staff was very professional and attentive. I purchased a video and photo book as a momentous. It would have been impossible... More
