This experience was unforgettable!! We swam with a lot of dolphins, they were everywhere around the boat, we could almost touch them into the water! Swimming with them was amazing, and the crew was very helpful, especially with people who did not feel very comfortable with the snorkel. The only difficulty was to snorkel with the waves sometimes, but it is part of the experience and I made memories for a lifetime =) Also, people on the boat who did not swim could really appreciate the experience too, as the dolphins were just next to the boat. Well, a perfect Christmas gift for me and my family!

We are first time join dolphin swim adventure. unlike other dolphin program, it is unique, the closest way to wild dolphin. We are lucky see a lot of dolphin. May be first adventure after X'mas holiday, many dolphins seem happy and willing close to the cruise.
Last but not least, all staffs including Andrew are very helpful. 4 hours program goes fast and we enjoy this adventure.

I just came home from my 2nd dolphin swim experience this morning! Once again it was amazing engaging with Over 20 dolphins!

The team are fun, exciting, enthusiastic and very encouraging over my 2 experiences the service and experience has been consistent... Exactly what I love!

They use a boat imagine and there crew are also amazing, working together to make an enjoyable, fun memorable and safe experience!

I never come on these sites however something really stood out to me today and these guys deserve a fantastic review!

Andrew the CEO was speaking with a young girl who had enjoyed the experience and I overheard him telling her about swimming with wild dolphins and he is proud that she was there and not at Sea World as this is the way of the future! I couldn't have said it better myself Andrew is running an excellent experience as well as encouraging people to see them in there natural environment!! Good on you guys! Will be back soon with all my friends!

Thanks for the smiles
