Amazing swim with the Dolphins - almost an hour 'hands on' and Xel ha has so much to do on, under and off the water! Didn't need the snorkel with dolphin element - too many in pool and couldn't see much - and photos are exorbitant price - we didn't buy the package

It is a beautiful place and plenty of things to do for kids and young adults. We saw two stingrays and a few fish. The kids cliff jumped. Relaxing day.

This was the first time that I had swam with Dolphins, My daughter had swam previously in Florida Sea World, but she said this was far better. We booked the Silver Package, and for this you get a t-shirt and the maximum people in your group was 4. The Dolphins are so intellectual, they are amazing animals. The habitat that... More

Always wanted to do this! Very expensive however thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do! Photos are very expensive though! £100 for a cd and that's after being discounted!

Book online before you go you will save money! Pictures are pricy but we bartered down to half the price to make us feel better about it. The park itself is beautiful. Tons to do. Didn't see it all with a full day. Highly recommended! !

You must go to this place, it's like heaven. The setting is beautiful and more natural for the Dolphins. We swam with the Dolphins and did snorkelling with the Dolphins. For those of you booking through Thomson, you get both these On the platinum price, however look at the price without the snorkelling, as much as we enjoyed swimming with... More

This is were we swan with the Dolpins & what a truly amazing experience is was. The swimming lasted about 50 minutes then we had the rest of the day to do some snorkelling, go on the zip wires, the lazy river, jump off cliffs, swim with the manatee. It's definitely a recommended trip to do. All drinks & food... More

We booked this through our Thomson rep and we are so glad we did. It was a once in a lifetime experience, the trainers were so nice. The fact you also got to spend the rest of the day in the park was amazing. We could easily have spent another day in Xel-Ha as there is so much to do.

We pre-booked the trip back home over a year before we went on holiday, both of us having wanted to swim with Dolphins for many years so this was a great opportunity to tick it off out bucket list. We visited Delphinus on May 30th 2016, we were picked up in a company air conditioned mini bus and the driver... More
