For me this was an amazing experience. I have seen dolphins from afar or at parks but never had a chance to get up close and personal. A birthday treat to myself, I mulled over the idea for a day or so, until in the evening I sat by the lagoon hearing the dolphins swim and breathe and woke up... More

I had the Apnea experience - some lessons on the anatomy of dolphins and a few jumps, and the highlights, two underwater pulls. A must.

It was expensive but I had a wonderful dolphin encounter. Also purchased the pictures on a USD. Again expensive but very good photo quality and good shots.

We did a one one with me and my two kids (3 and 10). It was a pricey, a few hundred. The instructor tried hard to education the kids about dolphins. The dolphin was wonderful and gentle. These dolphins were recuperated from the US navy or were born in captivity. You can see these demonstrations from the bridge. The price... More

It is really expensive, and focused on taking money out of the tourists. Not that much explanation, just there for the picture.

My wife and I signed up for the Romance Package. We were with another couple and a trainer plus a photographer. It started out with about 15 minutes about the facility and dolphins in general then 45 minutes in the water with the dolphins. There are 3 dolphins on site and we spent time with each of them. The trainers... More

We had a fantastic time here! We signed up for the Special Romance Package which meant that we had one on one time with a team member and one of the dolphins. Moana (my memory might be failing me about his name) was attentive, knowledgeable and a great guide through this experience. Vladimir was on hand too to take photos... More

Seeing a dolphin up close and being able to be it, is a t good as it gets, people are concerned that they were captured from the wild which isn't the case, these dolphins were born in captivity and appear to be very happy and content, I watched them freely swim between their pools and jump happily without the trainer...

I love dolphins so when I found out the hotel we were staying at had a dolphin center I convinced my husband that we should do the dolphin experience. We got there at 10am just to find out that there had been confusion and somehow we had been scheduled for 7/5 instead of 5/7 (difference between how the date is... More

My husband and I decided to splurge for the package in which you are in the deep water with the dolphins. The trainer was very knowledgeable, and gave us a history on the dolphins. We each got to take a ride underwater while holding onto the dolphin which was absolutely amazing. Just be forewarned, they charge $20 for one printed... More
