Totally unexpected, we stumbled on this at the Bermuda National Museum (Royal Naval Dockyard). It happened to be quiet when we went (November). There was no one around... just us with the trainers and the dolphins, well worth the visit and expense for this personal adventure!

To kiss a Dolphin, I want to experience again! It was awesome! I didn't get to go into the water with the dolphins but I spent a little time with them, stroking them and playing games with them. One of the Trainers called Shelly(I think that was her name I could be wrong), was amazing. She made me feel so... More

Depending on which experience you choose, the trainers will allow you feed the dolphins, swim in the tank with them, and even perform tricks. My only reservation is the very high prices which has prevented most of my friends and family from going when visiting Bermuda.

This was my entire family's first time swimming with dolphins and we all loved it! The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Dolphins were great and we even got to be in the same pool with two baby dolphins. Yes, this is expensive and the time is short, but seriously, when else are you going to have the opportunity...

We stumbled upon this as it is inside the National Museum grounds. It was free for the kids to get into the National Museum, and only around $15 for me as an adult, so it was already reasonable. It did not cost extra to watch the dolphins train. We did not actually "do" the dolphin quest, but watching was amazingly... More

We were very fortunate to have a dolphin encounter all to ourselves. It was truly magical and something that my girls (aged 6 and 9) and I will remember forever. The dolphins we interacted and swam with seemed as excited as we were - like it was their first time too! The trainers were amazing, and we learnt so much... More

In October 2014 I took part in the Ultimate Dolphin Encounter and my trainer Rebecca was TERRIFIC! She made the whole experience educational and relaxing since it was my first time up close with dolphins. I would highly reccomend this to anyone and would definitely do it again.

My wife and I did the Dolphin Encounter and it was worth every penny. We got some great pictures (that you have to buy) and the experience was unique. If you've never done it before, I would recommend doing it at least once in your life.

This is an experience I have always wanted to try but had mixed feelings about dolphins in captivity for the pleasure of humans. My brother and I spent time at the facility before making a decision to do it. We observed 9 dolphins, 2 were still babies, who appeared to be very happy and well cared for. The staff took... More

We had a blast learning about and swimming with the Dolphins. The trainers were super knowledgeable and loved the animals in their care. We were very glad we went for the 1 hour program despite the higher price. First, the shorter programs had a huge group of kids in them, and second an hour felt like the perfect amount of... More
