Hopefully the dolphin feeding is included in your package because it is good to do. Great experience, there didn’t seem to be as many people as usual so we were given multiple fish to feed the dolphins. We feed Rani :-)

A fantastic experience even if only watching. As others have said, these are wild dolphins - they are free to come and go as they please. The guides are very clear about not touching them, avoiding camera flashes etc. Sadly, some guests don't understand /...More

This is not your typical waterpark dolphin experience. These are wild dolphins that are free to come and go as they please. You are not allowed to touch them, as they are wild. After cleansing your hands, you walk into the water, where the dolphins...More
