Incredible experience! Our trainer Mario and photographer Vanessa were amazing! The entire family had a blast. At first we were not sure our 6 yr old was able to do the belly swim and boogie push, But after guidance from Mario we were all able to do it! Definately worth doing at least once while here in Caymans!

While on a cruise, we booked a tour that included the Dolphin Discovery. Upon arrival, we were provided lockers to secure our possessions. Next, we were given a life vest and a briefing from the staff. We were taken in a group into the pool and introduced to one of the dolphins by the trainer. We were allowed to touch... More

Very Friendly and folks made you comfortable during the experience, but when time came to collect my picture it was like pulling teeth. I was one of the first in the group and waited and waited, probably 30 minutes to get the print after my dolphin experience. To my disappointment, I had to leave the business and my photo print...

I was really looking forward to this as It's been on my bucket list for years. I wasn't disappointed and enjoyed the interaction. The criticism I would have is that I felt it was more about posing to take pictures with them to sell you afterwards than actually interacting with the dolphin. Still enjoyed it through

Trainers were very knowledgeable and fun. Dolphins were adorable. Only complaint was to many pictures were taken and extremely expensive to buy. Would recommend.

This was certainly a bucket list event for most of us. It was hands down one of the highlights of our cruise. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Facility was overall clean. But when it came to looking at our pictures the experience was definitely tainted. It was highway robbery charging $38 dollars per picture. Since we had to keep... More

Had a great time swimming with the dolphins. We got a breif course on their sign language. Then had them do a few tricks. Next we got to hold their fins safely, and let them pull us. We also got to use kickboards, and let them push us. It was real fast, like water skiing. Had a blast, and got... More

My child and I were very happy with our experience here! The staff was professional and courteous. The dolphins seem well-trained and happy. The scenery was beautiful. The 'dolphin kiss' photo came out perfect! Would highly recommend.
