“Great Dolphin Swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I did the Royal Swim with the dolphins and it was the best experience I have ever had. The trainer taught us to do a bunch of tricks with the dolphins, but my favourite was the foot push. At the end we all got to do the foot push several times and it felt like I was flying in the air. We also got to do a few tricks with the Sea lion too. The only thing I did not like was how expensive the photos were. I tried to buy more photos online when I got home but the link did not work.

“Close Encounter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On a recent cruise on the Carnival Splendor I had the good fortune of swimming with the dolphins at this wonderful venue. The trainers were exceptional, and the dolphins were treated with respect and were in tremendous shape. It was one of the coolest things I have ever done. There are a number of different encounters available and I chose the royal which was the one that had the longest time in the water with them. All told we were in the pool for about an hour. During that time, we were fully interacting with them- riding with them, playing with them, relaying signals that affected different behaviors and really having a wonderful time. If you want to do something really memorable and a bucket list item-this is it!

“swimming with dolphins rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

it's worth every dollar to spend the most time with the dolphins. It's worth buying the CD with your photos on it. It's a once in a lifetime chance you just cannot miss! You'll want to have them as pets when you're done.

“Swam with the sea lions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Great side trip featuring unbelievable interaction with these incredible ocean creatures. Our group had so much fun as the sea lions pulled each of us around the pool, capped by them soaring over our heads as staff photographer took pictures of each of us. Afterwards, you're able to purchase individual photos or design your own holiday photo-book keepsake of experience.
