Stop supporting those money makers! These poor animals suffer in that small place. I cant believe that people think that they are happy in their cave.
There are far better places to see many beautiful animals, living freely and happy.
Safe your money and dont support them using those poor animals.
It just made me cry when I saw them and we left again.

We did this through our activities desk, and although it is pricey, it is worth every cent for the experience. If you're smart you will have a friend stand by with a good camera to take your photos, as on top of the cost of the experience comes the 69000CPF digital photos!!

The guides were very lovely and the experience is really something special though. A real treat, and worth it since the profits go to conservation.

Fantastic time swimming with the dolphins. It was only an hour, would be great if it would be longer and more educational.

You can see the full experience from the overwater bridges. Getting in the water overrated and you are really just paying 25k Francs to take a pic with them. Invest in the shark and ray snorkel/dive instead

InterContinental has the sea turtle rescue and dolphin rescue on the property, both a part of the Lagoonarium here. The turtle rescue is absolutely amazing, with heartwarming stories from the local turtles. They release them in to the wild when they are ready. The dolphins are beautiful, but skip paying to get in the water to meet them. You get the entire experience from the bridge above.
