Great day to remember whether you swim with the dolphins or not. A bit expensive but a fraction of the US prices. Just do it!

The dolphin park was situated about 100m from our hotel. Firstly to get a feel for the place and to see how the swimming with dolphins operated, we booked to "Watch The Dolphins" where you all sit round the edge of the pool on benches and watch someone do their swim and work through the tricks with the dolphin. Even if you just watch the dolphins you will get wet as the trainer gets the dolphin to do a trick with its fin and swim past everyone...so watch out!

We decided that we both wanted to swim with dolphins, so we booked in for a couples swim and also purchased the photo package. In total for the swim and the photos it worked out at about £80 so very cheap for such a fantastic experience. We had the female trainer, and the biggest dolphin in the park, called Flip. We were both in the water together for the whole time and took it in turns to do tricks with him and we got to hold onto his fin so he could pull us around the pool. We also tickled his tummy which was funny as it made him flap his fins! We also danced with him, made him clap, made him sing and felt for his heartbeat. I think the swim lasted 10 minutes and it went so quickly as we really enjoyed it.

Lifejackets were provided for the price, and we all got a safety talk beforehand so I think its a well organised place. The staff were all really friendly. If anyone gets a chance to swim with dolphins, I would highly recommend it.
