The dolphin experience was educational and lots of fun. Trainers demonstrated excellent knowledge and respect for the 5 dolphins that were the stars of the show.

Outstanding. What a great group of loving and caring people. The animals are all treated with love and affection. It's about customer and animal safety. I can't say enough good things about the people and facility. Don't miss this opportunity.

Fun for all ages and languages...atleast one on the staff was able to fluently speak 5 languages...I speak English only but I thought that was worth the mention. also, you're free to take as many photos of the dolphin encounter you want from the public viewing areas, photo distance is about 40 to 60 feet. one of a kind resort

We did not participate, but you can watch others as they do. I want to bring my family back for this thrilling activity.
