We did signature swim. Dolphins were awesome. Trainers were great but it was the typical 30 min swim with dolphins. Touch, kiss, hug, dance, ride, and you're done. I would say if you're looking for something unique try a different package than the signature swim. This is definitely for first timers and not so adventurous people.

Got in the water and really did a lot with them. Posing, hugging and she even jumped over each of us. I've done dolphins, this was better.

We enjoyed a private family swim with Dolphins. Our children ages 5, 9, and 11 all agree that this was the best part of our vacation.

We had an amazing time swimming with the Dolphins. I highly recommend it. I think our favorite souvenir from our trip was our photo, as a family, with the dolphin.

We did the Dolphin Adventure for Kids. My 4 year old was in the water without me. I was a little nervous at first but the staff were amazing! She had an incredible time and even rode a dolphin. The staff were also very helpful and not pushy when we were purchasing pictures afterwards. I wouldn't have changed a thing!... More

My daughter enjoyed it. The people are friendly. The children feed the dolphins and actually get to interact with the dolphins.

My day swimming with the dolphins was a life dream come true. We do share our magnificent water world with these high intelligent, empathetic and telepathic dolphins and as I swam with them I felt totally connected. The handlers crew and the photographers were wonderful, courteous, explained expectations exactly and totally. I will return again someday... Gracias don Victor Sunstar,... More
