“A very fun experience!”

It was really amazing to see such awesome animals so closely, and to be able to actually swim with them! The staff was great and the water park was fun :)

“Fun to the max!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

So much time and hands on with 2 dolphins! We were taught basic commands which were carried out by our pals easily. Most memorable was holding on to 2 fins and being pulled throughout the pool. So cool!.

“Scratch it off the bucket list!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Swimming with the dolphins has been one of my lifelong dreams (and was on my bucket list of things to do). I recommend the extreme package-it is well worth the money. My hisband said i had a permagrin on the entire time i was in the water with them! And get the photos after you are finished, pictures really are worth it!

“Dolphin Adventure+ Wonderful Staff= WIN”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

My husband and I decided to pick a couple of adventures while we were on our honeymoon. The dolphins obviously being one of them. I couldn't believe how happy the dolphins, staff, and the other visitors were. My husband and I swam with the dolphins and I can't stress enough how wonderful of an experience that was. I am going to miss this.. but will definitely see the dolphins again the next time I am in Mexico.
