We had less time in the water than expected, but it was an awesome experience. My son was enamored with the Dolphins. The trainers were kind and informative! :)

my daughter did the dolphins experience and loved it. I looked at DRC too alot more expensive plus not at the hotel, the people are nice and dolphins love the attention.
