First time being in the water with dolphins and it was lots of fun. Trainers had fun and the dolphins appeared to be having fun. You can tell the dolphins are well cared for.

We went in off season and had a very personal experience because of it. My wife loves dolphins so swimming with them is something she can't so no to. It was an expensive day but worth it at least once. It's not something we'll go back to repeatedly (like diving) but worth a one time visit at least.

Due to a serious medical emergency, our cruise ship missed this port of call (Grand Cayman) by a day. We had no problems changing our reservation. This park was clean, the staff was friendly and we had a great time. In addition the driver gave us a narrated tour along the way both to and from the park. We researched parks that offered dolphin swims and this park was not our cruise line's port destination so we booked it on our own - I actually highly recommend that experienced travelers who are planning to take a cruise research the ports before booking tours and activities through the cruise line.

We did the less expensive dolphin encounter and it was still an awesome experience ! The staff was professional and it appears as though the dolphins are happy and well cared for. Having pictures of all of us receiving dolphin kisses and dancing while holding their flippers is a wonderful addition to our vacation memories. We also were able to hold a couple of birds and take our own pictures of that. Experienced a 20 minute delay in leaving for our time on 7 mile beach ( included in package price } but it didn't detract from the overall experience. Food provided was not fancy, sandwiches, chips and unlimited liquid refreshment ( soda , water, beer ) but was exactly what they had advertised. All in all a very nice experience !
