An excellent day & experience with such intelligent creatures! They obviously enjoy doing everything they do & the people who train them, must be patient & dedicated. Lots of other things to do, we have been here 3 times in the last few years & it is worth the price.

The good, and the bad. The good is this was very organized and you do get to touch the dolphin, kiss the dolphin and have the dolphin swim with you as promised but the sad part is these dolphins do not appear to live in great conditions and have scars on their bodies and the pool did not seem clean...

Fun and well organized but it was way to short of a time to spend with the dolphins for the price. Also the photo cost was very high.

This was one of the highlights of our family trip. The staff was great but the picture prices are pretty stiff.

My oldest son had done a dolphin swim in the Bahamas and had told me that he spent no more than 5 minutes with the dolphins. So that's what I expected. But we were in the water with these beautiful animals for 30 minutes. Even though they spent only 5 minutes or so with each individual...you still felt like you... More
