My family visited the Dolphin Discovery twice!

We stayed at the Dreams & stumbled upon this place by accident. It is within walking distance from the Dreams but from other hotels I'm not sure. We were able to grab a Starbucks there too. Prices were much more reasonable than at the resort. We spent just under $500 CAD for 4 people to swim with the dolphins, Manatee,... More

They tell you one thing and do another...I had some tickets that would good for one year and now they won't honor them. I have this in writing. I even scan it to them stating that. They said sorry. Bad business practice.

An experience of a lifetime! Wonderful to get so close to the dolphins. Amazing creatures. So gentle, yet so powerful. The facility was well organised and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great day. We were picked up at the resort and taken back after the experience. We had the Royal Swim plus package - one... More

Our family did the Royal Swim which included 1 hour with the dolphins, 1/2 hour with the sea lions and 1/2 hour with the manatees. It was a fantastic day and was well worth the money spent. HOWEVER, the photos were a complete rip-off. The cost of the photos was almost the same as the cost of all 3 of... More

This was a good couple of hours out, but it was all geared up for pictures. Not enjoyment, the pictures are excellent but at $50 each person very expensive on top of ur ticket price, I wouldn't go again buy it was ok for a one time thing

My husband and I did the premium package (I forgot what they call it). It included an hour of pool time with 7 or 9 (again I forgot) activities with the dolphins. The facility was super nice and clean. The dolphins were awesome, Quitzal and Angelica :-). We thoroughly enjoyed having the pool to our selves with the photographer there... More

We booked this excursion just after Christmas, online prior to leaving on our trip. I would DEFINITELY recommend booking prior to your trip. We were able to get a fantastic online special/sale and it looks as though they are offered fairly regularly. The excursion itself... shuttle was on time both directions, courteous drivers. We booked the Royal Swim, which means... More
