amazing experience with the dolphin encounter definitely worth the money although it is very expensive. pictures should be a bit cheaper £80.00 for a UBS full of the pictures is very steep! staff at Atlantis very friendly and informative, next time would do the dolphin dive.

We stayed at the ATLANTIS so had a good rate, but my partner and I had always wanted to swim with them. We choose the adventure package and were not disappointed at all. Staff were excellent, very informative and we felt as though they gave us a first class time. Excellent value.

Great fun, well organised. Not cheap but we all loved it. 5 in a group and plenty of hands on time with the dolphins in deep water. Shallow water options for younger children
