“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

My husband did the full swim and absolutely loved it. There is plenty of time to interact with the dolphins. The instructors communicate some really good/cool facts about the animals. The 'encounter' was perfect for a first introduction to the animals for our small children. It's not too long (for their short attention span) and very fun! Watching all the activities is really fun too. Also worth watching are the seal shows and the feeding of the Manatees.

Dolphinaris have the most wonderful dolphin programs and the best facilities. Our trainers and vets are really professional and happy to assist you at any time. Dolphinaris only offers dolphin swims. We are a dolphinarium and love dolphins. We think that we must give all our attention to them. We think you are confused about the other shows you mention that we don’t offer.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you at DOLPHINARIS.

“Finally got to swim with the Dolphins.”

The trainers answered all my questions and it was so much fun being so close to the Dolphins. They did many tricks and had tons of personality.

“Had a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Absolutely an amazing time. Worth every penny! Ladies, make sure swimsuit bottoms are secure or wear a one-piece if doing the foot push or belly ride. The force of the water causes them to come down.

Dear visitor, the foot-push activity is the one that everyone likes to do. People love being pushed on their feet by the dolphins, it’s incredible! You can wear a swimsuit to feel more comfortable when doing it. The belly-ride is also very popular, the dolphins look so cute and we know that people enjoy swimming with the dolphins a lot.

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

“Dolphin fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

A great experience. You are allowed to do several things with the dolphins depending on the package you purchase. We did three things with the dolphins. There was the foot push where the dolphin pushes you across the pool while you hold a superman pose. There was the stomach ride where you hold onto their fins and lie on their stomach while they pull you. Lastly the snorkel where you watch them underwater with a mask.
I think the price could have been a little cheaper for the experience you get. Also it would be nice if 1 photo was included in the price as they charge a lot for pictures.
