We booked this excursion for my 4 year old daughter, my husband and myself. It was one of the best things we did while in Puerto Vallarta. We really appreciated the educational aspect of the experience and being able to swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat and on their terms. Gemma is extremely knowledgeable and has masters in marine biology. She knows all the dolphins by name and how to read them.
We didn't have to go too far before we found dolphins (all together about 40 during our time out). My husband and I went swimming on our own while Gemma took our daughter in the ocean each time to see the dolphins. She held her while the dolphins swam up and explained to her what they were doing. She was excellent with our child. We got to jump in the water at least a half a dozen times to swim with various dolphins. We also had people on board that didn't swim and just went along to see the dolphins so you have the option to do whatever you want.
While we were out, Gemma also had to photograph a dolphin as part of their research. She explained some of the research projects they do on their resident dolphins which was really interesting to hear.
We really enjoyed our excursion and I would highly recommend Wildlife Connections.
