“Amazing!!!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I did this excursion yesterday and all I can say is amazing.

Touching dolphins (so soft like cotton), kissing, singing, and unforgettable experience. Clear water in a natural pool in the middle of the ocean.

I will add some pictures later.

“Awful!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Don't waste your money on this excursion! The people were rude!!! They herded you through like cattle, yelling out orders that we could not understand. The cages for the dolphins were small and upsetting. We were given very little time with the dolphins. Lots of photos were taken by their photographer. Our cameras were not allowed. You can purchase a cd of the photos for 40$ for one person. It was 75$ for the three of us. After the excursion they bring you back and keep you around for about an hour hopin the longer you wait the more you will buy.
The only positive thing I can say is that the dolphins were amazing and beautiful creatures!

“Terrible conditions”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We sailed by dolphin island while we were on a snorkeling trip. We passed by slow and close enough to see the terrible conditions these animals were being held in. The "pens" were about the size of a backyard pool, hardly enough for dolphins. We passed by in the middle of the day with many other boats but the place was empty. Hopefully they close up shop and release the animals. Very sad.
