My two teenage daughters participated in the 45 minute ‘Encounter Deluxe’ program. They really enjoyed the experience. Their trainer, Ashley, was very fun and personable. They felt it was a good amount of time to spend with the dolphins – their group of 6 they got to be up close and person with 3 or 4 different dolphins. In total, there were 3 groups – all about the same size – in the dolphin pool at the same time (the program has 11 dolphins on staff).
There was no hard sell for the DVD or photos, which we appreciated (though we did return the next day to purchase a few photos). They did have a photographer and videographer in the pool with each group to take photos, but if you have a decent camera, you can get some OK photos of your own.
All in all, a great experience, and a memorable highlight of their Hawaii trip.
