Swim with dolphins Sanur

Okay...always mixed reviews with this topic. Took my son last year and I had mixed feelings...

He wants to take his girlfriend next month (assuming he can get tickets...as it is popular!!). Just wanted to check if there is only one operator?? Bit confused as heard of different names. Bali Dolphins...and Dolphin Lodge? Are they the same?

If anyone can give me the heads up on whether there is only one operator (or more) or if there are preferred agents etc...very grateful :)

I think there's only one operator. I looked at both Bali Dolphins and Dolphin Lodge and their dolphins have the same names. So I'm assuming there's only one place.

Not sure if you can book anywhere else, but I booked direct (I hope!!)

Hi, we booked through TIC Bali after not being able to book direct and they were great to deal with.

Dolphin Lodge is the company that has the dolphins, all others are agents. I found Dolphin Lodge to be prompt in answering questions, and always have most current info in regards to vacancies.

Thanks guys. Yes, did Lovina a couple of years ago seeing the wild dolphins via the outrigger boats and also three captive dolphins at the Exselsor hotel (:(). Swam with the dolphins in Sanur last year but just got confused as to whether there was more than one operator.

I have emailed Bali Dolphins 11 days ago...no reply (same happened last year). Hope they attend to their dolphins better than their prospective customers :)

Yeah, I've emailed them five times with no response.

It even says on their web page that they get very busy so pre-book way in advance. It's impossible to book it seems :-(
