Swimming with them was great but the water they are kept in in rank. They are very clever dolphins and I really enjoyed the kisses.... More

My husband and I spent one glorious hour in the water with Xel-Ha, I believe, a dolphin that had recently been transferred from another facility. We were with Jade, the trainer, who was SO kind and was really informative about dolphins themselves and how to properly act around dolphins. We did a couples swim and I would definitely suggest, if... More

I was advised before arriving in Mexico that if I really wanted a brilliant experience with dolphins to be a trainer for the day which I think was the gold package. What can I say? Excellent, amazing, out of this world! My husband said not only could I not stop enthusing about it to everyone we met afterwards but I... More

We went for the Platinum package which included the park. The dolphin experience was fantastic, much better that discovery cove. The trainer we had was very good but I'm sure they all are. The photos are expensive but we went for the $242 package with the memory stick, DVD & 4 prints. We had 132 images on the stick so... More

It's great as the dolphins are treated really well as they are in their natural environment. The photos and videos are expensive but are worth having. Also, we did the platinum package and it was brilliant as there are only 6 people in a group!
