I thought you would be able to swim with lots of dolphins here. You have to pay some ridiculous price to dive with them and it didn’t look that great. So we paid a small fee to go in but wasn’t worth it. Get here...More

Dolphins live happily in this reef. You can swim with them, walk around and see them swimming, eating, jumping etc. If you have time, ask for the hydrotherapy treatment. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

Great time seeing swimming dolphins, but I can't understand, why in the tickets office she said, that there is no snorkelling with dolphins, only diving. After 10 min I saw people snorkelling... How?

It's a place where you can experience how dolphins live in nature. They are not under capture, they can swim to the open sea. Definitely recommended.
