Who knew in the middle of the desert you can go swimming with a dolphin. We had a absolute fantasy time. The whole complex is wonderful. From restaurants to candy shops. Well worth the time.

I'm not sure how that works. Contact Dolphinaris to inquire how to view/print. If you purchased the pictures they took, you may be able to their website. I hope this helps.😊
