This is one of the best places to go for a Dolphin Swim. The fact that the trainers care so much about those dolphins is amazing. You also get to do the swim in their natural habitat, not in a pool like most of the places out there. This was simply incredible!!!

It obviously had to be a unique experience, an encounter with another form of intelligence. But the time spent in the water with the dolphins was no more than 10 mn. They advertize for a 1hr and a half tour though. We spent most of our times watching other small groups do what will do later. And as we were... More

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.

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.
