Our family came here to have an experience of a lifetime and we did. We had 5 adults, a teen and a toddler. All of us agreed it was amazing. Francisco was the trainer and biologist that worked with Amaya, the dolphin. Paola was our guide and photographer. To me, this was so unique and worth the expense. I've wanted... More

We had a great time here. Booked this experience thru our hotel. The kids loved it! The only draw back is you can not take good pictures of your child's experience. They take amazing pictures for you, but they want upwards of 200$ for the entire video / pictures package. You are not able to buy one or two pictures.... More

This is a fun experience if you haven't done it before, but it could be improved. You feel very much like you are on an assembly line of dolphin tricks, with no opportunity for interaction. Do this, pose here, touch this, raise your hand, kiss the dolphin swim and done. I understand the need to manage the animal's interactions, but... More

The experience was amazing and one which we have wanted to do for a while. It was close to the hotel which was a bonus. They did a great job and the animals were incredible and very well trained. Only disappointment was the cost of the pictures - over $250! Our family wasn't the only family looking around going "huh"?... More

We got a discounted rate for the dolphin encounter by booking online 72 hours in advance. Of course the pricey part was the photos - you can take your own, but you are behind a fence, so they don't do it justice. My son (6 yo) loved the experience though- it was the highlight of his trip!

This is an absolute must if you are traveling down to Cabo for vacation or whatnot. Israel the trainer was absolutely incredible. The entire experience was well worth it. We did the royal swim which consists of some close encounters with the dolphins, some actual swimming with the dolphins and the dolphins do seem to really enjoy it. The picture... More

Great staffing and it seemed like they really took great care of the dolphins... Not sure about the industry as a whole but this place was well managed.

We went with a big group. The kids who went in liked it. They try to double up on the price with RIDICULOUS prices on photos and making it impossible to take your own photos. The guides were rude to our youngest kids. Very unpleasant to be an observer. Recommendation: pass

If you love dolphins and want the complete experience, this is a great place to go. It is a little pricey and they get you on the photos but it is worth it. I always try to do one big excursion per trip to cabo and have done the dolphins twice. I highly recommend!

The whale shark expedition was a definite repeater! Leo, who was in charge of our pongo boat, had an evident love and enthusiasm for the whale sharks as well as an equal measure of concern to ensure that all enjoyed their experience while staying safe. We look forward to doing this again, and hopefully with the same guide.
