An excellent venue. great friendly staff and well organised from the start (our swim was an early one at 8.30) The plave has a gift shop and toilets but no other facilities ( They could do with more ampple changing room facilities)
Overall, the experience was excellent; the trainers are knowledgeable and attentive to your needs and what you want. They take time to remember your name and answer all questions you may have. You go through a short training at the beginning before getting ready with life jackets or wet suits( if the water temperature is not high enough) It is expensive but Dolphin Cove are slightly cheaper so overall an excellent experience and well worth every dime! Do it!

“Kiss a dolphin”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great staff, super friendly. Trainers and aides were knowledgable about dolphins and their care. Great for friends, family trips. They offer different programs depending on budget and how comfortable you are in the water. Our daughter kissed Kimbit a young dolphin and she is absolutely thrilled! What a memory!!

No regrets! Well worth the money. Trainers are awesome and very knowledgeable. One trainer in particular ( blonde curly hair ) was awesome. She took time after the swim to answer questions and tell us interesting facts about the dolphins. Wish I had gotten her name because she was great!

“Lots of dolphin fun”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great, friendly service from all the staff at Dolphin Cove. The whole experience was a delight, and there was plenty time in the water with the lovely dolphins. It is a costly game this, but in comparison to other companies, they are cheaper, so slightly better value. I don't understand why some reviewers are getting upset about observer positions near the lagoon. These are wild animals, and they deserve some space and respect. The photo service they provide is a LOT cheaper than competitors, and is a very high standard. A great day and happy memories to last a lifetime.

“fulfilled our son's dream”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

A terrific experience all around for our family of 4. Knowledgeable, friendly trainers who cared about the dolphins. There were several groups swimming simultaneously, but we never even noticed we were just having too much fun! Expensive, but when you consider one dolphin can eat 19 lbs of fish a day, you can see why. After your session was over you were welcome to watch the others' experiences and ask questions. If I had to make one criticism, I'd say they sell you pretty hard on the photos/CD. However, generally I never usually buy those kinds of things, but we ended up getting it because you see the sequence of reactions on your faces.
