It never gets old! The firest time the dolphin show up - no matter how many times you have experienced it, it is still MAGICAL. This is my 5th trip to Wildquest, and the forst time I stayed for 2 weeks. If it was not good, trust me, I would not go back.
Spending 2 weeks was amazing and allowed me a more relaxed experience, both with the dolphins and knowing that I had an entire weekend to bum around the island. I got to do everything I wanted and then some.
Wildquest is the perfect venue for experiencing dolphins in the wild. The staff is caring, attentive, skilled, and just downright wonderful. The crew took such good care of me when I got seasick the first day out - a first for me. You can just feel that you matter. They are adept at handling all levels of swimmers, from those who are mermaids to the more tentative. They make sure that everyone gets to experience the beauty of the close encounter with the dolphins. Each and every staff member is special in their own way. Make time if you can for some amazing bodywork! The food that Tara prepares is magnificent and you cn taste the love in every bite. This is not a resort, more an eco-tourism retreat with meditation offered for those who want to participate. Expect to pitch in with the dishes, but it will add to your connection with your fellow travelers.
You will enjoy every minute and make new friends for life.
I truly hope to go again next year. It revives my spirit and makes my soul sing! Go - you will not regret it!

Each day on our week long retreats, we are scheduled to go out on our 41-foot catamaran DolphinQuest for some snorkeling at coral reefs, visiting the famous Atlantis Stone Road and of course meeting up with playful dolphins. Snorkeling and free diving lessons are included and all levels of aquatic skills are welcome. WildQuest provides a supportive and safe environment, both on the boat and on land for the optimum Human-Dolphin Connection.
