They do a great job with the dolphin swim here. So cool to be up close and personal with the animals. During the slow season, it isn't worth the extra for the smaller group as most groups are pretty small anyway and you more than get a turn with the dolphins.

This was our second time here. Last time was 8 years ago. While a few things have a little, not a lot has changed, and it's now even better. You get to kiss, dance, direct, belly swim and board swim with a dolphin. One in our party had the observer pass which allowed us to take photos from shore and... More

My wife and 3 kids took up this attraction when our Disney magic cruise docked here for the day. The experience was breathtaking. It was like none other. We organized it through the cruise company. We were shuttled to the attraction by local guides. Upon arrival we were given a brief and important rundown on what we had to do... More

My daughter (age 8), son (age 6) and myself did this as a port excursion on our Disney Cruise. We booked directly through Disney. We took a short bus ride to the location and was escorted by friendly staff members through a small orientation. They also took us group by group to take a family photo before entering in to...

The experience itself is wonderful. We enjoyed our swim with our dolphin (Believer? Bolivar? Hard to tell with her accent). Being pushed by a dolphin and feeling that acceleration in the water is breathtaking, as was holding his fins while he swam upside down. He seems to enjoy the experience (or maybe just the fishy treats!), so I would say... More

I thought I had purchased a dolphin swim for both my husband and I for our 3oth anniversary. When I got there they told me I only purchased a kiss and a hand shake with the dolphins and to swim with them, it was another $20.00. this started out my experience and joy in a terrible way.

We booked our tour for noon but with all the cruise ship crowds our time slot got pushed back. I was annoyed about sitting there until we realized our swim was just the two of us after the place emptied out ! The place is nice, snack bar and tables to hang out on with a nice view. There are...
