“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. We had a group of 16 of us there for my wedding and they were kind enough to give us our own area with 2 dolphins instead of splitting us up. We were able to kiss them, pet them, get a dolphin ride, and they even let me and my husband do a special trick with them at the end. It was a fabulous time and I would totally recommend it to anyone who is staying in or around Riviera Maya!

“couples dream swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

What a thrill to swim with the dolphins for an hour.
It was just my husband and I with a dolphin trainer.
A little pricy but worth it to us.

Dear visitor, we have beautiful programs in Riviera Maya and it’s great you could enjoy a lot of the different and amazing activities with the dolphins. Our trainers are very professional for two things: they love dolphins and our trainers like to see our visitors happy.

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

“Swim with the Dolphins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

It was everything you could imagine and more - a very personal and meaningful experience, and although itnis man made, because it is saltwater and right next to the sea, it's as close as you could get ina safe environment.

“LOVED it but pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had 4 hours of interaction with the dolphins. Our 6 and 9 year old kids loved it. Can't wear sunscreen though and you get really burnt !!! The sunscreen isn't good for the dolphins. There are lockers and I would bring a snack for yourself. They had a place to buy snack food there. Barter the price of photos down at end of dolphin experience. This is extremely pricey, around $100 for photos and a disc or more even. I think we paid around $80 but didn't buy the video. The video has cheesy background music but you do have video then of your whole group throughout the tour, but clips of it that they edit together. We had an amazing time here. Remember though it's very hot and no sunscreen unless you can find some your allowed to wear with dolphins?

Dear visitor, we don’t allow our visitors to wear sun-cream for the dolphins’ welfare but we recommend you to wear a t-shirt to be protected from the sun although it is not obligatory. We appreciate your understanding for not wearing sunglasses or any jewellery since dolphins may eat these and it’s bad for their health.

The photo and video department is dedicated to your pictures during your session and they offer different options and prices.

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

“Pretty nice deal, except for the photos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I did this through resort credit at the Aventura Cove/Spa Palace Resort, so we didn't pay. It was wonderful- we all got to do a belly ride and a kiss, and also got to watch tricks, training, and lots of petting. I don't think we'd have done this if we had to pay for it, but it was nice to go.
Also, they don't let you bring a camera, which is AWFUL because then they price-gouge you so you can bring home a picture of you with a dolphin.. For me, that immediately brought this down to 3 stars.

Dear visitor, it was a great deal for you to have the chance to swim with the dolphins at Dolphinaris. We would like to let you know that we have different programs and each one with different activities. You probably had only the chance to do one of them but we invite you to know all the different programs we have. Our visitors love this great experience of swimming with dolphins.

Cameras are not allowed in the swimming area since you can drop your camera and hit a dolphin, we avoid this. You can have the chance to buy pictures, the photo and video department will give you different options and prices.

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