We loved our experience with the Apnea package at the dolphin center. We got to play in the water with the dolphins, learn about them, and even swim with them! Definitley worth the money (it is not cheap)

Admirable what they are doing with the dolphins, but the cost of 'swimming with the dolphins' I thought was a bit exy.

Once in a life opportunity, glad we did it. The cost may seem high at first but when you put things in perspective it's not so bad (my wife had her picture with a panda in china for 3 seconds for about USD$175). The staff...More

Our two children really enjoyed this. The dolphin was great and the human host a perfect blend of educator and entertainer. The photographer took excellent pictures that we will happily look at again and again.

Loved the trainers- very knowledgeable and friendly. The dolphins are spectacular. I did the "meet and greet" which was just fine. Swimming 20 ft with them wouldn't be worth the money.

I don't think it's really worth the money if you have ever swam with the dolphins...if it's your first time however, it will be great!

Stop supporting those money makers! These poor animals suffer in that small place. I cant believe that people think that they are happy in their cave. There are far better places to see many beautiful animals, living freely and happy. Safe your money and dont...More

We did this through our activities desk, and although it is pricey, it is worth every cent for the experience. If you're smart you will have a friend stand by with a good camera to take your photos, as on top of the cost of...More

While you were swimming with the dolphins did it bother you that these animals were locked in a prison where they can't leave, can't feed or explore like free mammals?

Hi, how long would I need to be able to hold my breath for the Reva experience?

I cannot answer that question. Our daughter was too young for that experience. However, I would recommend giving them a call. They are very friendly and speak both French and English.
