I did the basic encounter as I have always wanted to do the dolphin kiss; however, I am not a swimmer. The Encounter was perfect, as I got to get kissed and kiss them, shake hands, dance, give them commands, and touch them several times. The pictures are quite costly but it was an experience that I will treasure, so... More

To be up close and personal with such magnificent creatures is an experience that you won't forget and hopefully in the end benefits ocean animals of all kinds as people learn to appreciate their beauty and intelligence. That said, the dolphins are essentially being exploited as money making machines and the whole time with them is geared around the photos... More

Had an amazing time swimming with the dolphins and felt happier it was in the sea and not a small swimming pool. Experience however was let down by the lack of availability of boats back to Cancun. Had our swim at 10.30am and then earliest boat back is 3.30pm. And the photos.......they would make a fortune if they reduced the... More

The snorkeling tour we bought there was okay. It could have been a little longer. The tour included food at the VIP lounge and swim with the sand sharks and sting rays. We found out about the shark swim from our tour guide on our way from the snorkeling. They never told us this when we bought our tickets. Also,... More

I visited Dolphin Discovery on November 29. My 13 year old daughter and I were going to swim with the dolphins while my sister was going to watch from the top floor restaurant.

If on Isla this is a MUST. Both kids and adults have lots of fun. Swimming with Dolphins is unforgettable experience. Just be aware they will try to gouge on pictures. Prices are absolutely ridiculous. Food was great though.

I'm writing this review to target the owners of this resort. Action needs to be taken to stop ripping customers off. The excursion itself costs £300 (around $375 USD at the time of writing). When you arrive at the port they go through various upgrades. We paid for VIP (around $30 USD extra) and then began our journey on the... More
