Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink, followed by the sea lion and dolphin shows. There were only about ten of us in the audience so the kids enjoyed a close up look at these amazing creatures and even a chance to feed the sea lion. After that we went swimming with the dolphins. Wear tight fitting bottoms... More

Liked that you could purchase your own professional package and have time with Dolphins and that you had a lunch afterwards. Disliked the fact you could not use your own camera, and had to pay extra to swim with the Dolphins.

This was a fun trip. The staff on the catamaran made sure you had fun. Getting to touch the dolphin and have it kiss you was a unique experience we all enjoyed. The ending was a little long when we sailed for a few hours....we were all ready to head back to the hotel at this point.

Swimming with dolphins is much better than encounter with dolphins. We swam with Cacho and he was such a sweetheart! Totally recommend it.

I swum with a dolphin on my own. This was good as I got to do a lot of things with the dolphin, which were great fun and perfectly safe until the last activity. I had been towed by the dolphin whilst holding onto its flippers. I was then asked if I would like to be pushed really fast by... More

It is a fun experience. The trainers really love their dolphins. They treat them well. It's nice to see that they still live in the ocean and the areas for them are big (compared to the small tanks you would see at Sea World or something). They do some great tricks. The food is pretty good. The chicken was great.
