We booked a boat trip from our hotel rep to go to this island. Yes it's a long day but boy what a fabulous day we had. We got our private transportation to the port and had to pay an $8 tax per person to get back which you pay on the boat. It takes about 30 minutes on the... More

This is a first class, resort-styled attraction. The dolphins are the stars, of course, but the rest of the experience is excellent. Very good food, excellent service, cabanas, several pools, gift shop, etc. We had VIP tickets, which were $$$. The kids loved the experience. Forget Sea World. This is nothing like Sea World. It's much better. The best attraction... More

We took the Ultramar ferry to Isla and got a golf cart. We rode to Dolphin Discovery, about 20 minutes away, and were quickly ushered to the area with the dolphins. My daughter and her friend had four other people in her group which was great. They spent a whole hour interacting with the instructor and the dolphins. Their smiles... More

We visited 'Dolphin Discovery' on the Isla of Mujeres, whilst holidaying near Cancun, it was a great experience. The cost of the trip was 90 USD which included transport from our hotel, the boat trip across to the island(40 mins) and back (including snacks and drinks on the boat), a 40 minute close-up session with the dolphins and an excellent...

We all enjoyed this experience! Ages 2, 7, 9 and all the way to 40! This was a great family day for such vast age ranges! Very calm, safe and comfortable environment even for the little ones... The photo purchasing post-experience is highway robbery but you've no other option if you want to the pictures. Understandably, they don't want photography... More

This is a must visit destination while in Cancun area,once in a life time experience awesome customer service. I lost the pictures I purchased from the dolphin swimming experience, a simple email to them was enough for them to send them via Dropbox even after I returned home. So glad I will always have those memories.

I toured (didn't swim) each of the dolphin swim locations in Mexico and in every one the dolphins were unhealthy and forced to perform even when sick or injured in just 4-5 ft of water. Their living quarters were no larger than a large swimming pool. So very sad I cried when I got back in my car. Please don't... More

Swimming with dolphins (and manatees and sea lions) was frankly amazing! We upgraded to the VIP package and it was well worth it. We spent over 2 1/2 hours in the water with the animals, including feeding the manatee by hand! Our "superman" push with the dolphins was incredible. Pictures are not included in the price of the package and... More
