Never would have thought I would kiss and swim with a dolphin. Will never forget it. Trainers were excellent. Was able to participate in all the water activities at the park. Lots of fun

We selected the Signature Dolphin Swim and we were so happy that we did. This is an amazing experience. You hold on and the dolphins give you a ride a few times. This is worth the additional money.

I recommend that anyone wishing to spend some quality time with the cutest creatures on the planet go to Dolphin Adventure by Vallarta Adventures. You should do the signature swim. It costs a bit more, but you receive more time with the dolphins because the group is smaller. Ask for Manuel, he is a wonderful and helpful dolphin trainer that... More

Spend 45 minutes in the water with these amazing sea creatures. fun, interactive and informative. I'd say a once in a lifetime experience but I know on my next trip to PV I'll be doing another dolphin encounter. Kudos to Cinthia (the trainer) made our time there well worth the money spent.

We had 7 people in our group with two dolphins. Although there were seven of us we were all able to interact with the dolphins equally. The staff get you to do different... More

Great experience. Very well done. Our family bonded with the dolphins and with each other. Be ready to buy the photos as you will want them to remember. They do a video as well. Fantastic.

I booked for my daughter to do the Thomson Dolphin Bronze Adenture. She loved every second of her time meeting 2 dolphins, getting up close to them, touching them, swimming with them. The onsite photographers took over 40 photos of excellent quality for me to purchase after her time in the water
