Owner description: Worlds' best dolphinariums !Dolphinaris . . . A place for you. A place for them. If you’re looking for the best place to swim with dolphins in Cancun this is the right place for you!At Dolphinaris, we provide people of all ages the opportunity to make their dreams come true. We see the evidence of this every day as we watch the faces of our guests when they meet one of our dolphins for the very first time.Located next to, but not part of the water park Wet ´n Wild and easy to get to with public transportation Dolphinaris is the best attraction for swimming with dolphins in Cancun! * We are a multimillion-dollar investment and the most advanced dolphinariums in Mexico, only in some places in the U.S.A. have the same technology we have, providing you the best quality in all aspects unlike other dolphinariums that only use a simple fishing net at the sea beach, where in addition to swimming with dolphins, you swim with algae, waves, ocean currents, ship oil and gas, you also swims with the dolphins waste, exposing you to severe skin or vital organs infections. Avoid all that... next time choose dolphinaris!

“Highlight of my trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We spent 60minutes with these great dolphins and it was perfect, you get to do many things with them. (touching, kissing, tricks, hand gestures) I did the toe push and it was the best thing ive done. The staff are excellent and the environment and the grounds are amazing, very clean and they treat the dolphins very well.

“Great first experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We spent quite some time with the dolphins in the water, petting them, getting a "kiss", holding their fins, and getting a foot-push or holding on to their fins as they pull you through the water. It's a group activity, though, in a pool, i.e, don't expect a transformative experience with just you and a dolphin out in the water. It was our first time, and we loved it. The next time, we might try something in the open water, in their real habitat.

Dear visitor, it’s always exciting to share time with the dolphins, and doing the foot-push is fascinating, this activity is one of the most favorite ones by our visitors. People love swimming with the dolphins in our facilities due to the excellent service we provide.

We would like to say that we have a high tech water system with clear and clean water for our dolphins and visitors’ sake. Our dolphins receive great attention and love.

Thank you for visiting Dolphinaris and you are always very welcome.

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a great time with the dolphins, they are such beautiful creatures. We spent time with them, patting them, swimming with them, the dophins also gave us a ride which was an awesome experience. Be careful with the photos at the end, they are very expensive and you are not allowed to take your camera's with you for your own photography.
