We had done a Dolphin Encounter in Hawaii before, but this was so much better. We chose the "Extreme" adventure with the dolphins, and it was so much fun. It is really amazing to get so close to the dolphins and do more than just hug and kiss them. You get to dive under the water while holding on to... More

We plumped for the Dolphin Extreme experience, where you get to swim with the dolphins, have them take you under the water, push you along on a body board, you get to sit under the water and feed them, then watch them perform tricks from under the water with scuba equipment, and get to kiss and dance with the dolphins...

This was such an amazing experience! The dolphins were so friendly and we all felt very safe. When the 2 dolphins take you underwater, they look at you with such sweet eyes...AMAZING! The trainers were all very nice and welcoming. A special thanks to Manuel for making our experience so great :) I was shocked to see how much they... More

We were extremely excited to swim with dolphins. While monitoring the dolphins before our swim, we noticed they were not really obeying commands, which was concerning. Even when we were in the pool they weren't really obedient to every command. Them came the scary part. We had to swim with them under water! 3 of 5 in our group had... More

Our family of 4 had a great time meeting Angel, the dolphin. We were in the water with him and we had the opportunity to pet, kiss and play with him. The trainer was very informative and taught the group several tricks. We had a blast! We would do this again and skip the water park. The park itself is... More
