We got the chance to get up close and touch them as they swam by... that was nice. After the show, we had a very... More

Show was a Dolphin show. 2 Dolphins doing clever stuff either to a whistle or music...but its still a couple of "wild" animals undergoing a circus act - only this time with a supposed smile and in water. The Dolphins were breed in captivity we were told..but how can you challenge it. Most people really enjoyed it and the opportunity... More

Good value for money, always a treat swimming with the Dolphins. There is also a sea lion there but we did not see him perform. We walked to the show from our hotel so the area was pretty quiet as it was at the weekend when most people are coming or going from the resorts.

Fantastic welcome of the team. we had lot of time to exchange with the dolphins and their trainers. For instance we learnt that unfortunately the dolphins would never survive outside as they were born and breed ' captive' . That they were eager to learn and not necessarily ''sad". Things are often more complex than what you think.

Had no choice but to stop here as it was a part of the catamaran trip we booked. I would have set them all free if I could have...I think it's cruel to take them out of their natural habitat. Sorry.

The day was filled with fun. Music, drinks, snorkeling, lobster lunch, dolphins and more. The captain and staff were great. Very close to our resort. Had a great time.

The Dolphins were in natural sea water the whole area was clean & tidy, and the swim was amazing with clear easy to follow instructions from our guide/trainer :)
