We did the following: - they come up and kiss you on cheek - they swim up and you can kiss them on the snout - you grab their fins and they pull you through the water - they did a few group activities with the dolphins, petting them, getting...

Our dolphin was martha. She was so sweet! She kissed us, splashed us, and let us kiss her back! It was such a beautiful experience. I truly loved it and the ride there was nice too. We also went on a speed boat and it was pretty fun. It was part of the package. Oh, and we got to swim... More

I took my kids here for the day to do the dolphin royal swim. They had the time of their lives! All of the employees interacted with them constantly and made the day even more fun. Our favorite guide was Wilmar. He had the kids laughing and smiling the whole time. The dolphins seem to be well taken care of... More

When we arrived we were put into groups of about 12, then we watched a safety video before heading off to Dolphin Island. We put our... More
