I was apprehensive at first about the cost to do the structured swim, but as other commentators have suggested, it was absolutely worth it. The first hour or so we learned about dolphin behaviors and what to expect. Although we knew most of the information from various nature shows, it was different to hear it again knowing that you're going to be getting into the water with these incredible animals. Once we got into the water, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The trainers made sure we did a number of different interactions and if the younger dolphin who was still learning made a mistake, they'd do it over again. We got a flash drive documenting our experience that had over 180 pictures on it. Pictures turned out great and I'm glad we got them. Amazing experience.
