This is a great way to share with one of the worlds most intelligent animals in the world. You get to swim, share and know more about the dolphins up close and personal. Remember to try and book in with previous time.

A unique, once in the life time experience from everybody's bucket list... Not cheap but worth every penny! The swin with the dolphin option is really much better than the dolphin encounter... so if you can afford it: GO!

We spent a full day at the Sea Aquarium and found no shortage of things to do. Every animal seemed to be well cared for and we learned a lot from the demonstrations.

Lockers are free of charge and centrally located, which was very useful considering we planned to participate in the dolphin swim and lea lion encounter.

The facility was clean and cared for.

The Dolphin Swim itself was a great experience, but for the price we paid, I wish we were given more time in the water. Our trainer had two separate groups to work with during our time slot, and the experience felt rushed. It is something I would certainly recommend to others, but I found myself wishing I had booked the dolphin snorkel, if just to ensure we had more time and attention from the trainers and dolphins.

Pictures for purchase are on the expensive side, but are a nice keepsake.

Staff is very friendly.

I have been swimming with dolphins for 30 years. This venue was as wonderful as all the others.
Instruction was given in English and Spanish. Each swimmer was given the opportunity to experience several interactions with the loveable dolphins. This was my husband's first swim. The instructor made him feel very comfortable.
