No cameras are allowed while you are in the ocean. The photographer will take plenty of pics, so keep smiling from the time you are getting into the water. The seal... More

Great for all ages. We were able to kiss and hug the dolphins. We also did the swim with the dolphins and was pulled by them as we glided across the water holding their fin. From our youngest at age 7 to our oldest at 48 it was an amazing experience. Be sure to take extra money for the pictures... More

You get to swim with the dolphins, touch them, make them do tricks and let them push you up in the air or carry you while you hold their fins. People working here really love their dolphins. The animals are being treated very well. Enjoyed my experience.

This was an amazing visit to mexico with riding dolphins and then feeding and petting manatees. Then you get a DVD to remember your experience and see pictures of it all over again.

This was the worst dolphin encounter of three for us. The staff is extremely rude and inattentive. We had the misfortune of being the only English speakers in a group with locals. The trainer barely said anything in English literally ignoring us most of the time. The cost of the pictures are so ridiculous ( $40 for each single picture... More

Our bunches ages was from 67 years old to 15 months. We also had a non-swimmer (the oldest) that is terrified of water, that enjoyed every second!

Dolphin Discovery at Chankanaab is a nice place, but you will pay. We did not get with the Dolphins until about an hour after our scheduled time - be prepared for delays. Part of the delay problem is the dolphins - our dolphin decided to hang out with her boyfriend, so they had to get another dolphin. The included buffet... More

Started the day with the royal swim experience with the dolphins! They offered a "photo-service" since you weren't allowed to have cameras in the water. A tip to pre-pay a better price compared to buying afterwards. In a group of six, you were able to pet, do some tricks and swim (footpush and be towed) with two dolphins. It was... More
