Loved this adventure! I typically avoid "trained" diving adventures but ... "it's dolphins in the open water"! Oh my, this does not disappoint! The staff were absolutely wonderful and there are no adjectives that can do justice to Patrick the trainer and the entire operation!...More

Absolutely amazing adventure!!! Very professional and made a "bucket list" adventure better than expected. Bring your own gear as the only negative was, they charge $12.00 for wetsuit rental.

What Stephanie wrote is correct and I do not thing you can hold on to or "ride" a dolphin, even with the "swim with the dolphin" trip here or (I hope) anywhere.
