The basic package was for petting / playing with the dolphin and not swimming. This suited our family as we had small children.

I have never been this close to a Dolphin and the experience was really one to savour. They all looked so happy and at peace with the instructors. The icing on the cake was getting a kiss from the dolphin

Amazing experience but overly priced! Where as the dolphin instructors are super friendly keeps you less nervous when swimming

Expensive. But then you do get an oppurtunity to buy a picture of yourself with a dolphin... Organised well staff very informed but too exoensive for the 20 minutes in the water with a dolphin 2 instructors and 10 other people all paying about £120 each. Thats £1200 for 40 miuntes!!!

Even though the dolphin experience is rather expensive, it is still definitely well worth it! The dolphins are highly trained and are a really friendly and playful.
