The dolphins are well take care of and the educational program is part of the interactive experience (swimming with them). Very good and professional operation where the dolphin comes first>

We went on the splash and wade program. First of all we got a long speech about how human pollute the ocean with plastic and oil, witch of course I horrible. Then we finally came to the water with the dolphins. Let me just say I’m from Denmark and I’ve brought My parents in law and my kids. So I had to translate what the instructor said, but seemed like she was in a hurry and couldn’t wait for me to translate. So my kids didn’t get a good experience cause they didn’t know what to do. So I think that the 860$ that the 5 of us cost I way to much just to get a moral lecture, and then to be rushed through the program. When we were Finish the photographer seemed very unpleased about us not buying her pictures. Heard her talk to another customer, where she said that see would always buy pictures with here kids in it, and only 1-2 couples a month didn’t buy here pictures. And she Mads shure that we could miss it. So very expensive and not at all foreign minded at all. Waste of money and time.

Hello Ole,
I would like to personally extend our apologies that you did not have a good experience during your visit, we strive to provide a 5-Star encounter to each and every one of our guests.
We provide the educational briefing to highlight and explain our conservation efforts we proudly partake in on a daily basis, and hope to enlighten our guests on pollution issues so together, we can make a difference world wide.
I spoke with the Trainer you worked with and I believe you both did the best you could do in regards to the language barrier, considering you were responsible for translating for four people- not an easy task! Our staff is responsible for the safety of our guests and our animals, her actions were to ensure this was the case for your family, the intent was not to make your program feel rushed.
It is true that majority of our guests purchase their photos. They are a keepsake for their amazing experience, but it is completely up to the guest to decide whether they would like to or not.
Again, please except our apologies, and I do hope you give us the opportunity in the future to provide the 5-Star Experience majority of our guests (50% of which are international) have here at DPMMR.

Thank you
