Poor dolphins and hated being rushed in production line for a 5 minute interaction. Not worth the drive or $220.00.

I visited the cove last week. My partner filmed my experience on our camera and I only spent 9 minutes interacting with the dolphins. I felt like I was in the middle of a production line. A couple of tricks then change with another woman, a couple of tricks and out. I think there should be less people in the... More

Had the experience of a lifetime! The education and hands on interaction with Dolphins is the best experience I've ever had. The staff were super nice and knowledgeable and accommodated every level of swimmer. I chose the waist level wading program, and got to interact with the baby dolphin Issac. So cute and so much fun. Price is high, but... More

Our 3 year old had a chance to kiss Samantha the dolphin! She absolutely loved it! Hopefully next time she will be old enough to swim with them too!

This was a lifetime experience! In the beginning I didn't want to it because it was expensive and was convinced by my husband. I am so glad to have experienced something so unique! I swam with Leo and Nica and had a blast. What a feeling to touch, play and swim with these mamals. Their skin and feeling when you... More

I liked it very much that they really care for and about the animals. People have to undergo dry instructions (theory) first teaching the people what to do and how to treat the animals and what not in order not to hurt them.

I had both my daughters swim with the dolphins and it was a magical experience for both of them and myself. The trainers were polite and seemed to have fun with the dolphins as well as the participants.

There is nothing like swimming in the ocean with a 9 foot long 350 lb. smiling mammal (named Leo) who seems to enjoy showing off dozens of pointy white teeth. That was probably the high point to our fabulous Florida vacation in May, 2014. We planned and reserved 2 spots and pre paid about 5 weeks in advance. At first... More
