Although like everything else at this resort there is a fee for this (750 dollars for 4 of us) it is brilliant. Kids have not stopped talking about it since. Staff are great, knowledgable and friendly. Not allowed cameras though but still they take some lovely photos themselves (and charge you 120 dollars for them of course)

Very nice staff, very happy and my son loved it, no complaints from me, wish it was a little cheaper perhaps but guessing they have to earn a certain amount to keep going so all for a good cause, highly recommneded.

We did not actually swim with the dolphins but watch them from dry land and it is always such a treat.

This was an AMAZING experience! All of the dolphins were so friendly, (Funny and clumsy too)! All of the dolphins come straight up to you and splash you and play with you. It was a great experience for the family and will SO do it again! Even the mini gift shop and all of the pictures were fantastic! This is... More

We had less time in the water than expected, but it was an awesome experience. My son was enamored with the Dolphins. The trainers were kind and informative! :)

My daughter and I spent the morning in the trainer for the day program amd loved it. All of the staff was fantastic and really cared for the dolphins. They were well cared for and seemed happy there. Definitely would recommend this experience.
