“Couldn't have had a better experience”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

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.

“Fantastic experience!!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We had the best time swimming with the dolphins. My kids ages8 & 10 will never forget it. The information portion prior to the swim was super! Would recommend this to anyone that loves dolphins. (Nice they also have wetsuits) water in February can be a little chilly.

A bit expensive but so incredible. Did the structured swim and the staff and dolphins were so friendly it just was incredible. Splurge the extra money and get the photo CD - worth every penny and although we took our own shots, you just don't get the shots the photographer does...got 70 shots on the CD!

“A very nice experience - the dolphins likes it there!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We wanted to encounter dolphins and read the great reviews on this place. Our daughter has her mind made up regarding animals in captivity so the "Natural Swim" was the obvious choice.
It's an encounter more on the dolphins terms and you cannot actively touch the dolphins but are you can encourage the dolphins to play with you. They are really curious creatures and you can feel that while in the water with them.
You do need to be comfortable with fins and snorkel to get the most out of this.
Staff were great and informative. Do this!
