Be sure to make your reservations to do this before you get to the island. We went in the Fall, so it wasn't so busy, but it was still a full group. If you stay at the Royal Sea Aquarium Resort, admittance to the aquarium is free. Otherwise, you will have to pay $20, I believe, to get in. It's very small but have a lot of hands on things to do and see. It was $159 each person to do the dolphin 'swim', other classes are available, and it was worth every cent. You can't take your own camera in basically because you are too busy to take any pics! The staff there takes several pictures of every interaction you do with the dolphins. For $75 you can buy the disc of all the pics taken in your group of 6, and for $50 more, you can add the video disc (when you buy both). It was the highlight of our trip! If and when I go back to Curacao, I will have to do it again!
