What a great experience! I felt like a 5 years old child... just couldn't stop laughing! :) There are three options of experience, we had the Atlantis Dolphin Adventure. The entire interaction takes place in deep water, but you don't need to be a great swimmer (i'm not!), just have to be able to tread water (and the clothes you'll put on will also help you with that). There are 6 guests per dolphin and you stay 30 minutes in the water. It was so much fun! Not cheap, but totally worth the money. You can't take any cameras to the pool area, but there's a professional photographer taking pictures so you can buy later. One bad thing: even though we had already bought our tickets on the website, we had to stand in a long line to get our access into the park.

The interaction with the dolphins is great but very short. You do a couple of nice things with them and there is time to touch them. We booked the Royal Swim but everybody was doing the same things with the dolphins. Nobody checked which package you booked. It is difficult to advies wether or not it is worth the money

Not cheap but worth the money, try to make a reservation online and not during weekends, Watch the movie and explanations before swimming with the dolphins, our trainer Augustin was very careful and explained us lots of things we did not previously know about the dolphins, If possible avoid Chinese large groups since they are very, very noisy, they do not speak English and are very undisciplined.

If you have a family it was a bit too much to spend to play and swim with dolphin for 30 minutes but the location quite good but the heat was unbelievable very warm

Fantastic, there is nothing to dislike!

It takes around one hour from start to finish, first they give you a 15 minute talk about the dolphins.

They supplied water and towels, also wetsuits. We went for the full wetsuit to protect us from the sun but they also do vests.

No hair bands, grips or sun cream but you can put some on your face. This is a must as the weather and water together will make you burn.

Wonderful for children, adults alike, also a good experience for the handicapped.

The team are brilliant, water clean, dolphins look healthy and happy.

They take photos whilst you are in the water with the dolphins, expensive but worth it. You do not have to buy! There is also a shop to buy dolphin goodies.
