The reason we booked this was it was 50% off if you booked online, which we did. There are 2 dolphins for up to 10 people, but we lucked out and it was just me and my wife, so we essentially got a private experience for 45 minutes. We did the "Signature Swim" package. Truly a once in a lifetime... More

Wow!! Can't say enough about this wonderful experience. We pet, swam and danced these amazing creatures. I was worried about then being in captivity but the trainer explained that they live much longer with them than in the wild. If they see any little thing wrong with the dolphins 🐬 they call in an expert.

This put a smile on our faces for days! It was so exhilarating. Only complaint is $$$$ for photos. It isn't cheap to swim and then cost of photos is too pricey. It was a phenomenal experience. Would do it again!

We went with the... More

We were supposed to go whale watching but our representative wrote down the wrong arrival time. The company offered for us to go another day but we were leaving the next morning. They had room to for the dolphin adventure, so we were able to fit that in our schedule. It was quick but a great experience much more interactive... More

Yes, it costs more than the other dolphin swims, but how many times in your life will you get to do this?? We wanted to swim with dolphins, and selected the "Trainer For A Day" option because it listed the most activities, but we didn't realize just how amazing it would be!! The other dolphin swims are also lovely, but... More
