“Surreal Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The dolphins are soo cute and it is most definitely worth every penny. My sister had the shallow water swim as well and every time she looks at the pictures, she smiles. It is truly a happy place. The staff are very nice as well.

“Great time and experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Wonderful experience, just too bad it is in the tacky and overpriced Atlantis resort. You will feel like you have had your pockets picked.

“Dolphins Treat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Just superb, fantastic, worth a visit. I dont want to tell you more detail here as the fun would be gone, just go there and spend a day with dolphins, although its very pricey but it is worth a visit for once atleast in a lifetime.

“Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Expensive and overpriced for a 30min session. I felt a bit deflated having payed £550 for 3 of us and 3 observers :(
Had to pay extra for pics aswell - they should have one complientary included for that price..

“Highly recommend”

Fantastic, very informative. Talk and quiz before then into the huge lagoon to spend time with dolphin, not rushed or overcrowded at all. Lovely experience, never to be forgotten. Booked online very easy
