We went today to this park. We paid for the triple adventure swim. Three activities with the dolphins. About three hours. The park is very small and not sure if the dolphins have much room to roam about. They were all beautiful and very well trained. The facility seems to care about their conservation and not only $$. The dolphins... More

We loved swimming with these well trained and beautiful creatures, alongside their expert trainer. They seemed happy and relaxed and it was an amazing experience touching them, seeing them up close and interacting. At one point one of the two dolphins got "tired" of us and went off to a resting platform, and was allowed to do this, no problem.... More

So fun! Our little girls loved it, still talking about it. You won't need your camera as they will sell you a high-priced package at the end but bring money, it's worth it.

I booked five days in advance for a discount which made a 40 minute dolphin swim and ride for my brother and I $119 total USD (tax included). We additionally bought photos which were expensive but we were able to haggle to lower the price significantly.

Book online before you travel!! We spent $79 per person USD for a 3 hour experience. This is much cheaper than if you book when you are there. We got to do a belly ride, foot push, snorkeling, dolphin interaction. There was lots of educating around the safety and training of the dolphins. My only complaint would be that you... More

We took our children 20, 18 & 7. They all had an amazing time. We did the dolphin swim & ride, it was well worth the money. Drinks & lunch were included. Lots of time with their amazing dolphins and snorkeling was also a huge hit. Expect to drop some money on pictures. They do negotiate the prices but again... More

Get right ion the water with the dolphins. Dolphins push you around. Pull you. Kiss you. let you pet them. Were in the water for about an hour. There is a free show prior to the pool activity but if you want to interact with the dolphins you must pay. It is worth the cash.

Don't book Dolphinaris. Upon arrival, you're greeting by staff with no enthusiasm, nor personality and total disorganization. Most of the tour was sitting in a room being lectured on the environment which was respected to gain a better understanding of their world but could have been shorter. Not a lot of time was spent actually swimming dolphins. You cannot take... More
