Went here during part of a catamaran cruise. Was great to see the dolphin, kept in the sea but fenced off. Watched dolphin show, then got chance to swim with dolphins. Amazing experience.

Loved, loved, loved swimming with the dolphins here. Amazing experience. Expensive photos though, especially if there is more than 2 in your group. Looking at approx $45 for a photo cd with no prints.
