The Dolphin show is one of the most spectacular experiences to be had by anyone coming to Durban. Whether travelling on business or leisure it is well-worth the visit.

This was the most amazing experience and I shared this with my daughter of 24 who was also tearful throughout the whole experience. Feeling the heartbeat of a dolphin just made everything seem so insignificant. The experience is... More
