children loved the shallow water interaction and spouse loved the deep water interaction together with a dolphin ride. Worth the expense.

Please note that you will not be able to swim with the dolphins. No foot push etc. It was a nice experience but quite pricy.

We had the Dolphin interaction, we could have stayed there all day and played. Beautiful mammals and they appear to be very well looked after.
