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.

Brand new establishment with a walrus in the show. Nothing to dislike there was a day for the locals and visitors to swim with dolphins

I have visited this site as part of a Snorkeling Catamaran Tour. Truly amazing: interaction with dolphins in the water: petting them, feeding them, getting a kiss with a professional photo, etc. plus a dolphin show and an excellent lobster tail lunch with live music. Highly recommended!
