Amazing day with excellent trainers and staff. Well run and super time in the shallow water experience with Doris and Brenda (dolphins). A day we will never forget.

We all swam with the dolphins. If you want to get tossed in the air don't forget some extra money. The experience is just as good without any extra expense. Our meal was also very nice.

Well organized and very clean. Staff was very friendly. Bring the extra 30 pesos... it's worth it!!! More time & tricks with the dolphins.

It began as a reasonably interesting day trip as part of "Cuba Cruise" with a bus ride and some information about Cuba. The setting was nice and there was a short boat ride to the dolphinarium. We watched a fairly standard seal show and dolphin show. We had a few complimentary drinks and waited a while for our turn to... More

We went to the Dolphinarium as part of our cruise excursion. We got to spend at least 30 minutes with the dolphins, in groups of 6 per dolphin. You could pay extra to have the dolphins pull you around or throw you up in the air (see my photos). It was definitely worth the extra 10CUC. There were several photographers... More

My Wife and I booked this excursion at the same time when we booked our trip to Holguin. We were picked up at the Blau Coste Verde Resort where we enjoyed a 20 minute or so bus ride to the Catamaran Cruise dock. The bus ride was nice as it allowed us to see a little of Cuba as we... More

Did this as part of the catamaran day. Amazing experience, dolphins were lovely and the Dolphinarium was nicely kept. Open to sea water and enclosures were larger than I expected. Dolphins looked healthy, as did the other animals there (sea lions and turtles we saw). Food and drinks were fine and on par with the resort, no complaints. Was very... More
