a little bit "tacky", and mainly geard to Japonese ( I was the only non japonese in my group of 10 ), but you forget all this when you are in the water swiming with the dolphins. Highly recomended if you are with kids

Dolphins here are from the Taiji in Japan, where the annual dolphin brutal slaughter is! Dolphin are not belong to captivity, if you want to see dolphins, visit them in the wild .

We did the all-day "dolphin trainer" package which made us feel like we were interns. We did get to swim with the dolphins, but to call it a chance to be a trainer was a bit over the top.

My husband and I visited this dolphin prison some years ago now. We were encouraged by the young American sales girl at the entrance that it was dolphin rescue centre where orphaned and injured dolphins came to be nursed back to health and then released. What a load of rubbish! It was nothing more than a dolphin prison where healthy dolphins had been ripped from wild and held in small pens of 10m x 10m and forced to perform tricks in exchange for food. As people who loved animals we were enraged and asked lots of questions to staff regarding the dolphins well being, their release, where they came from, etc all of which the 'trainers' were very unhappy about being asked in front of other visitors. I was amazed to see that this hell hole is still open - places like this should be closed down in this day and age! Anyone planning on visiting a captive Dolphin park should look up Taiji, Japan and watch the documentary 'The Cove' before doing so. At least you will be completely informed before you look your captive dolphin in the eyes.

Well. We booked Dolphins Pacific for last day activity through Fish & Fins. But was only told in Dolphins Pacific shop when we get there that we are not allowed to take our own picture. All visitors have to order photographing from on site service at price of 20USD for 5 shots.
Not to mention the whole activity is 90 minutes touching dolphin at pool side and only 15 minutes to swim with them, at a price of 110USD.
Then we decide to give it up but was told we need to pay a cancellation fees of 100USD per head. We were quite update but after communication with Fish & Fins this fee is waived. Thanks to Novat of Fish and Fins.
I don't recommend anyone to go there unless you plan to spend 110USD there for waiting at pool side for 1 and half hours and then jump in the pool, get your picture taken, pay another 20 and go back.
