“Beautiful property and worth at least one trip!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

It is a little overpriced but still think it was worth the experience! They are very well organized and have a beautiful facility! They do good job keeping you busy until its your turn with the dolphins! You watch a sea lion & parrot show, and get kisses from the sea lion! A short instruction video how to cue the dolphin and then your off to the water! Your put in groups of 6 people & 1 dolphin! Each person gets to cue dolphin to jump over their head, give you kisses, you get to swim with him 2 times, pet him and the trainer shows you a few diff. tricks! You also get to dance with the dolphin and they take great pics the whole time! Its worth purchasing the photos b/c they dont allow cameras out to dolphin area! So otherwise you wont have any of you interacting w/the dolphin! Its $50 us for a dvd and photos! Totally worth it! A lot of Nice pics!

“don't waste your time and $$”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

1 hour each way+terrible driver+poor road conditions. Its all about THEM taking YOUR picture then selling them to you at sky high price, don't bother bringing your camera, you won't be able to use it for the most important part of the trip. Be prepared to rush from one pathetic exhibit to another ( to give them time to get your pics ready) for the charge of the excursion you would think that you'd be able to take a pic of your family with a dolphin with your own camera!

“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We loved everything. This excursion was 5 minutes from our resort, Royal Catalonia Bavaro. We swam with sea lions, nurse sharks, and stingrays, snorkeled near coral reef, partied and drank on the boat and at a sand bar with people from several other boats. This is a great excursion.

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The trip was worth it! Especially if you like or would like to get to know Dolphins. The location is clean and beautiful. I have made a video for those interested. It includes birds, bird show and Sea Lion Show. The washrooms and food is fine.

Expect a 45 minute drive there and back. We left Bahia Bavaro at 10:10 in the morning and returned at 2:40 just before the end of lunch.
