We had a great time and even with children everyone enjoyed themselves. Photos on Cd weren't too expensive either :)

this trip captured my heart. Fell in love interacting with the dolphin. They dropped us off to this little beach afterwards and we saw lots of star fish. The waters were warm and clear it was breath taking to say the least

Overcrowded, rushed from one tank to another and long lines waiting turn. The water was green and the dolphins looked old and had scars. Kind of sad.

I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins and this did not disappoint. We had a lovely time - our dolphin was "Wally" and he was very sweet. We all got to swim with him, dance with him, he kissed me on the cheek and let me hug him and he pulled me around the marina on his back.... More

The dolphin was cute, I was pretty disappointed that they won't let you take your camera in the water with you (waterproof/gopro/whatever) and instead want to sell their own photos/video at ridiculosly inflated prices

This excursion is a must if you are traveling to the cayos! Swimming with the dolphins was a phenomenal experience, and very affordable.

We visited the Dolpinarium as part of the Catamaran tour. A full day with meal and drinks provided. It was enjoyable. Only complaint would be the jammed number of guests per catamaran.
