This was about my 7th time. It is always fun. This was a good location to do so, but not the next I've ever experienced. Just buy all the photos. It's the next value.

I took my grandson who is eight and I thought he would be afraid but our guide made it look so easy that my grandson enjoyed it. Young or old you will enjoy this excursion! I did not give it a five star because at the end the pictures that they took of you were in my opinion very expensive.... More

We were a little hesitant, wondering if this excursion might be a negative impact on the dolphins, but this place was amazing. It was so clear how much fun and how at peace the dolphins were. Ours was named Pizarro! What a cutie! And the trainer, Diego was so knowledgeable about the dolphins!! It was so clear that he had... More

We did the full dolphin experience. We got to play with, get pulled by, and ride the dolphins. The staff were friendly. The venue itself is a little tired looking but don't be dismayed. The trainers and dolphins were a delight. Our dolphins were Maggie and Boliver. I wish I had worn a one piece bathing suit as some of... More

Had a great time with the Dolphins and the instructor was very good. However, after an already expensive excursion, we had to pay an additional 200dollars for our photos (which were just transferred on to a cd). Made the expeciance a little bit sour.

My wife and I swam with the dolphins, a bit pricey but worth it. The pictures taken allow you to bring home the memories you created. Very smart animals and fun to swim with.

I've done this 3 times in my lifetime, and I've enjoyed it every time. It's great for kids, but many of the people doing it are adults. Pictures are expensive, so consider whether you really want them before swimming with the dolphins.
