Tour guides were great and the experience was unforgettable. The excursion itself was well worth the price paid. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the prices of the optional photos. Still, I would highly recommend this excursion.

Pictures are way too expensive!!!! The disc with pictures would be great if not costing $300! Everything else was great!!! Loved the baby dolphin!

I took my daughter here for a dolphin encounter during Thanksgiving. She loved her experience with the dolphins. She wants to do it again. They captured some great pictures of her interacting with the dolphins, although they were a bit expensive.

My family did the Dolphin VIP package. Pre-book ahead of time. We also added the experience w/ the manatee and sea lions as they were running a special which included all the pictures. We had a great time! I would rank this experience higher, but on the day we went to the Dolphin Discovery, it was very crowded. Our dolphin... More

The dolphin petting was fun, but trying to stand against the waves (in about 5 ft water) and pet the dolphin was challenging. Would have been nicer to be in a slightly smaller enclosure. It was fun, but a bit overpriced. There are simply more fun things to do while in Cozumel. Somewhat overcrowded and pictures were insanely priced.

My two teenage daughters were hesitant about this because of the captivity. We were pleasantly surprised. The tour was seamless from start to finish despite the rain.
