Educational adventure for all of us. Staff was friendly and truly cared about the animals. Animals seem well cared for and safety of everyone including the animals was primary concern!

I might have given it three stars due the crazy cost, except the money goes directly to rehabilitation and education. Very informative and fun!

I can't review the actual Dolphin swim. We stopped in late December 2015 in hopes of swimming with the Dolphins. We never made it past the front desk. It will cost you a mortgage payment if you have a family of 4. Be prepared for sticker shock and no-refund. I wanted to see a glimpse of what I was paying... More

My husband and I went here in 2009 for our 10 year anniversary. Since going I talk about it as my Favorite animal encounter ever! Nothing will compare. I tell everyone if you want to swim with dolphins this is where you should go. My husband and I had so much personal interaction with the Dolphins. It felt very special.... More

This was a very nice time. We saw fish, dolphins, birds and gators. This tour was very informative, the guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. This is good for all ages.

Have swam with the dolphins and have done yoga a couple times there. All were amazing. The people were very knowledgeable and polite. Would definitely go back in a heart beat and recommend it to anyone.

I paid for the interactive dolphin experience. Got up close and personal with the dolphins. Spent over 45 minutes in the water with them.

Spent a great day in Dolphin Cove. The best park ever! The tickets are quite expensive, however, if you count in the 14-day admission to Sea World and Aquatica - it becomes a reasonable deal. Tip: you can purchase a 14-day parking ticket for Sea World and Aquatica for $30 (in Dolphin Cove guest center) - this way, you can... More

My wife received this as a gift for her 50th birthday. She had a wonderful time and the staff and trainers were very good. It was fun for me to watch, learn and take pictures of these magnificent creatures having fun in the water. My wife was smiling all day long after this and would recommend this to anyone.

Not a highclass place,but very 'roadside'. Still a good value for the money. Worth the time. Very nice gift shop.
