Ok, it's quite expensive and then the charge for photos is extortionate - £100 for 10 pics! but it's a very good close-up, hands-on expereince with dolphins - especially for kids. Small groups with 1 trainer and 1 dolphin - my partner's daughter loved it.

Our 13 year old son participated in the Royal swim. He really enjoyed the experience and the look on his face said it all. It is very expensive and the price of the photos is a joke. We bought the memory stick which seemed the best value for money and printed off the photos at home.

Admittedly, there was a wait even though we had reservations, but it was totally worth it. Swimming with dolphins is just an amazing experience. We booked one of the more exclusive packages, 6 people with one dolphin: touching swimming, pushing, playing in the water - was all part of it. The keepers are very professional and try to keep the... More

Worth the opportunity to get close with these creatures. A bit pricey but kids and adults enjoyed the experience.

This is great we have done this both times whilst we stayed at the Atlantis, excellent for young kids who are a little unsure. They take excellent photos for you and are a must buy even if a little expensive.

Expensive and very sceptical beforehand but what a great experience. Really well done and very knowledgable and passionate team members. Excellent experience and some great memories. If you can, do not miss out on this.
