We have visited this place two times- in January 2015 and in August 2016. We have purchased the most expensive package for my husband, me and our 5 year old (including video and photos). Show is well done and dynamic. We all loved it. On our wayback, in 2015 we have picked up our video and photo materials just to... More

We visited as a family of 4, our children are 6yrs and 7yrs. We did the 'Boogie Surf' package and our dolphin handler was Juan Jose and he was great. We were with Luana the dolphin and she was really lovely. The place is laid out well with toilets, showers and lockers available. We wore long sleeve rashies and were... More

We decided to pay a little more for the couples only swim due to it being our honeymoon. The swim was amazing and the trainer (Maria), was fantastic. The experience was great and due to us having the full 45mins on our own we were able to have more interaction with the dolphin. Can't fault the swim at all. However...the... More

It cost us more to remember the experience than it did to actually swim with the Dolphins which isthmian reason I would give this one star. Swimming with the actual dolphin was a dream come true for me, although it's sad to know they are in captivity but I mean being so close to such a beautiful love animal was... More

Can't say anything other than one of the best times ever with my family. I can only give it a 4 out of 5 rating because of the price for the pictures, however, it was still worth it. My family and I had one of the best times ever. Would definitely do it again in a heart beat.

The experience of swimming with dolphins was good but be prepared to have the smile wiped off your face when you see the price of the photo packages. Packages range between $180 and $300. The cheapest package contains 12 photos on a CD which is ridiculous. Don't waste your money.

I went with a corporate group and am so mad at myself that we supported this place. The staff was so incredibly rude it was stunning; there was such an overwhelming atmosphere of negativity and rudeness that I wanted to leave. Then I saw the "tank" where the dolphins are kept; dirty, stagnant water and not very big. I noticed... More

The Dolphins were amazing......so beautiful and gentle. It was fun being able to interact with them in the water rather than just watching..........not just for kids, great for adults too!!!!!!!

excellent experience for us and a little 4 year old girl who loved every minute. We asked at the ticket desk how much the photos will be once we have finished our swim with the dolphins and on two occasions we were told not to worry and that everything will be explained when we go in. The swim itself was... More
