Booked it online before we went. Was given access to a locker, towels and a choice of wet suit or vest followed a briefing on the different types of dolphins and how to behave around them. We were split into 2 groups and were allowed to take our cameras to the beach part on our lagoon, however to take photos... More

Caters for all skill levels from young kids to experienced divers - you choose which experience you want to have. We have a family of 3 children aged 14, 11 and 8 and the youngest not the most confident in water, so we opted for the shallow water experience. We were in awe of Lilly our dolphin - ever playful...

What an amazing way to spend your 30th birthday. This place is beautiful. Not only is it part of the lovely 'Atlantis', it is in fantastic settings. It is super clean and well looked after. The facilities are great and the staff are very friendly. We didn't realise when we booked this but we actually went during Ramadan. Which to... More

Something i have always wanted to do is swim with dolphins, we decided to do this as a family at this resort. We were not disappointed, it isn't cheap but it is well worth it. The dolphins whilst in captivity have an amazing set up and is very spacious, clean and they are very well kept. The staff are very... More

I have always wanted to swim with the Dolphins and this was nothing short of brilliant. I did want to have the deep water experience where you get to swim with them properly but it was a little pricey for us so we did the shallow water experience instead and it did not disappoint. The handlers were wonderful and gave... More

We visited as part of a layover and decided to have a dolphin experience. It is worth EVERY penny!!! We had an amazing time with Abby the Dolphin. The trainers are wonderful and talk you though every step. You get plenty of one on one time and the photographer isn't at all intrusive - we completely forgot they was there!... More

A fantastic but expensive experience. Family of four, we chose the Dolphin Adventure activity, the smiles on my wife and children's faces as they interacted with Tina our dolphin for the forty minutes was priceless.

We had the dolphin encounter deal, for the 2nd time, and as usual the kids loved it, I still believe the price tag is exaggerated compared to the time spent and size of the group. The staff are very helpful and well knowledgeable and the kids do learn from them. The facility is well equipped. The pictures are another way... More
