My husband and I swam with the dolphins on our recent vacation to Key Largo. We absolutely loved the experience! We go into the water and got to meet the dolphins up close and personal. We got "handshakes" and dolphin "kisses". We got pushed around the pool by our feet and the dolphins pulled us around by their dorsal fins. After we left the water, we were able to watch the dolphins jump and play. There was even a baby dolphin swimming around in the pool.
As other ratings have suggested, the experience is somewhat short, however, I expected that. These are living, breathing animals-they do not exist to entertain us for hours on end. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I was happy to have it.
It's also true that this experience is expensive. I don't know how much it costs to maintain a dolphin, but I'm guessing it's a lot. These dolphins get top-of-the-line health care and restaurant quality fish. They appear happy and healthy and they trainers appear to really love them. I would gladly spend more at a company that cares about their animals, instead of a facility that churns out sick, tired dolphins at a discount price.
Dolphins Plus gets an A+ from me.
