“Dolphin Bay”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

A littel disappointing, very nice set up but unless you pay to meet the dolphins you don't see much at all.

The dolphins were wonderful and the handlers and experts were very good at helping, instructing and informing us about the dolphins.
Expensive, but great fun and well worth a visit

“Well worth the money”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

My wife and i went for the Royal Swim package and this was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience. The dolphins are well looked after and actually seem to enjoy what they do and are well rewarded with lots of fish.

“Dolphin encounter was once in a life time”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We did the dolphin encounter with my 3 year old. It was honestly an amazing feeling to be close to these creatures. We had an amazing experience, touching, kissing and hugging these lovely dolphins. I just feel that overall it is an expensive activity but then it is once in a life time option. Only request to Atlantis please reduce the price for photos as they are way too expensive
Not to forget the staff is awesome and you get free refreshments after the show
