We took our daughter here for her 10th birthday. Wife and daughter went in water, I stayed out with camera. They had a blast. Animals look very healthy. This is the largest attraction of its type in Cuba. The group was split in two sections, each section had their own dolphin and trainer. 30-40 minutes in the water, includes dancing,... More

Very small groups and lots of time with the dolphin. Very good price and really close to our resort. I also appreciated that they let me take pictures of my family for 10 cuc. Other places will not allow and force you buy photos taken by them.

We did this trip with all of our wedding guests and it was the most amazing experience ever! Stay to the end and tip extra and they may light you take a ride with the dolphin

We did this on a rather cool cloudy day. The water was wonderful but the coolness was a drag. Meeting the dolphins up close, lunch and the Rum Punches were highlights of the day!

I had cut my foot after swimming with them and basically had to help myself which ended the day on a sour note. The guys are friendly while there doing their activities though.

While in Cuba, Cayo Ensenachos, this is a must to visit the dolphinarium. The tour is agreeable, the lunch is quite simple but an agreeable gesture, when you took the Catamaran cruise (which is a good day altogether). Of course swimming with the dolphins makes it more personal and you may enjoy the proximity and brightness/intelligence of these particular mammals.... More

The show was fantastic . The dolphins are so well trained. And the relationship between the trainers and Dolphins was very close.

Amazing experience at the dolphinarium! Resto food is good. Dolphins are amazing, got to see a show and interact with Kiki. Dolphins seems to have lots of space to swim freely and seem to be cared for well. Only minus is the photography! Horrible quality pictures at not so cheap prices for the quality offered, pictures are cut out from... More

We visited the dolphinarium as part of a catamaran day trip from our resort. The lunch at the restaurant was plentiful and delicious; the interaction with the dolphins was special. The dolphins seemed to be well cared for.
