Very cool experience! Highly recommend getting picture and most expensive package. Got to pet and ride dolphins, take pictures with Sea Lions, and feed Manatees! The last part of the trip included a boat ride to CRYSTAL CLEAR waters to snorkel and drink cocktails. Very neat experience!!!

My daughter and I did the dolphin encounter and had the best time of our life. We started out in kayaks with the dolphins and ended in the 'pool' area playing with the dolphin. It was so incredible and I walked away with a new love for dolphins. Next time we get the opportunity, we plan to go swimming with... More

We enjoyed our excursion with our kids (3&5) they did the interaction. The only bad thing is the cost of the pictures when you're done with your fun experience they charge $20 a picture which I felt was outrageous however we bought.

This experience is not cheap, but watching our seven-year-old granddaughter made it very well worth the price. You get to pick the level of engagement with the dolphins, seals, and manatees. Included in the price is the buffet, a cd of photos, a picture frame, and one color print. You can walk around and check out the whole deal before... More

The trainers were nice but was not too exciting. You stand on a platform half submerged and the dolphins will come by and give you a kiss. Fed the manatees some lettuce. And the pictures-$50 for one?! That is just ridiculous
