Been upfront with a dolphin was an amazing experience. You kiss, touch, dance, swim with the dolphin. The only down side is, not enough time with dolphin. All the things you do is done quickly.

My desire to go Dolphin Bay was to have a sweet kiss with a so cute dolphin here and touch their extremely smooth skin... I got all what I expected from the trip...It was worth with your money and great experience. However, it was not a comfortable experience when you had your own "paparazzi". We had to pay around 300Drh... More

Really enjoyed the afternoon at Dolphin Bay. Very similar to other properties around the world, but still very enjoyable.

Booking on line is a must. Saves money as well as queuing Don't be tempted to rent locker when you get in Be aware that you should do your dolphin experience first Go at allocated time to Dolphin Bay where you get a locker provided for the duration of the activity - leave your camera here until later when you...

This was the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my life! Everyone who visits must swim with these lovely creatures or at least visit the hotel. The staff are so pleasant and you get treated like royalty.

It was really wonderful. We enjoyed it a lot swimming with dolphins. That’s such a great feeling touching them. Crew helped much. They are very gentle and informative. The price is quite high but it worth fair for satisfaction. It’s a unique lifetime experience. Photos are overpriced better you take your own.

This was possibly the highlight of my 6-year-old's life! So wonderful to be able to spend time up close to these amazing animals.
