“Magical experience for young and young at heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

You are swimming with these magical creatures in their natural habitat ...the ocean...so be prepared for if you go in cooler months that the water is cold and salty. You will spend over an hour interacting, touching on these sweet mammals. You also will get to hold on to its flipper as it pulls you through the water. I could go on and on...but I do have one negative. The buffett lunch included was some old hot dogs, hamburgers and chips. Very disappointed. ..hardly any fresh fruit. And only soda was available to drink.

“Couldnt stop laughing with joy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Swimming with the dolphins is a fee but if you really want to enjoy the fun, upgrade to the royal swim. We had swam with the dolphins with this same company before at another location in Mexico but enjoyed the different activities with the upgrade to the royal swim. When they say keep you legs straight because the dolphins will push you out of the water they mean out of the water. That was such a surprise how we felt like we were on top of the water. I just can not say it enough how professional the trainers were with us and the dolphins. The dolphin acted like they really had an attachment to the trainers. We can not wait to bring our grandkids to enjoy this experience. MAKE sure to bring a towel. We ended up buying a towel because we didn't bring one with us. They do have lockers available to put your valuables in and the key can be worn around your neck. Yes, the pictures can be pricey but it was well worth bringing back those memories. thanks for a memorial time.

“Awesome dolphin swim!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We had a group of 11 and 5 of them were kids ranging from ages 5-12. We were able to be together at the same time with the dolphins! We prob spent 2 hrs in the water with them. It was an awesome experience and the pics turned out great! The sea lion show was really cool too.

“neat but make sure you really love dolphins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I was expecting it to be more intimate w/ the animals but it was really just a photo opt that you didn't even get the photos from, those were a extra LARGE fee.

“Excellent excursion for a family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This was an experience of a lifetime for my children and I. We were on a cruise ship, but booked separately and had a small group of 10 people. Our guide was wonderful and really let us have a lot of interaction with the dolphin, Lizzie. The only downside, as most have noted, is the cost of pictures for the excursion. While they are optional, they are hard to leave behind. We negotiated with them a bit, but still had a pricey CD. That said, we would not purchase them again if we do this excursion again. Chankanaab park is included with the Dolphin excursion and is an excellent attraction in itself.
