Our office booked a swim with the dolphins tour as part of a team builder. It was an amazing morning. Captain Eddie was persistent in trying to find us a good pod of dolphins to swim with while being respectful to the dolphins and to us. Sindey and Brandon did and excellent job as crew members and alleviated any fears.... More

Our dolphin swim with Water Planet was absolutely amazing! Our Captain Eddie was very knowledgable about the dolphins and other marine life as well, and made it a wonderful trip! We were able to have several encounters with the dolphins and also snorkeled around ship wrecked ruins. It was absolutely incredible, and I would definitely recommend Water Planet to anyone!

Very private, small group of people. The captain was very informative and polite. You go out for about 4 hrs searching for dolphins in there natural environment(in disturbed)not a water park that mistreats them.

We had captain Eddie and he was fantastic. He told us how to swim so we'd be sure to see the dolphins and it was perfect!!! There were 4 times we got to swim with the dolphins and it's something I'll never forget. I highly recommend water planet! I was skeptical because of the cost but ultimately I'm glad we... More

We greatly appreciated his experience and was a true your guide and captain during our outing. We would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in swimming... More

Our captain was Jay and he could not have done a better job at providing us with an unforgettable experience! We dove with a pod of wild dolphins who played and swam right next to us. I happened to look around and noticed that we were the only ones out. It was because all the other tours are only 2... More

Adventure of a lifetime! Eddie made sure we were swimming with dolphins. He was very knowledgable about them and their habits. Side note...The shells were the best we've ever found!

Jay and Chloe were great so friendly and nice. We got to see lots of dolphins and got up close to them! My husband got so close to them at one point he was swimming with them. Water was beautiful that day!

Really interesting to connect our desire with the respect of wildlife. Seing the dolphins swimming near you, above you. Professionnal organization, don't change anything.
