Awesome to visit the Dolphins

interaction, with the Dolphins and my Grandson's face, we hope it is an education for people to treat other life as just important as human!

This was one the best ones we've done. So worth it. We've done this kind of activity in Bahamas and Barbados, this one was the best by far and the cheapest. Make sure you book the swimming and interaction with dolphin package.

Everything except the meal, it was cold burnt and unpalatable chicken I ate when I got back to the hotel. The rest of the trip was excellent well put together and presented.

loved the interaction with the Dolphins. This was part of the catamaran excursion. Snorkling was a part of this as well. The staff were entertaining and fun. Very helpful to all clients on board.

We had an amazing time here, the dolphin show was very entertaining and I loved how they had us all line up in the water to rub their bellies and receive kisses. A delicious lobster dinner was included. This a part of the catamaran excursion that we went on from the Iberostars Ensenachos resort. The catamaran was also a lovely... More

Truthfully we were very disappointed. We went on a snorkling/dolphin excursion and seeing the dolphins was our last stop. The platform that we stood on was so slippery that I was afraid that if I was to close to the edge I would slip and fall into the horribly gross water that the poor dolphins were in. We felt very...

I have mixed feelings about them being trapped and trained. But it also makes us aware of how we impact their environment!
