This was a request of my grandchildren they were so excited to see and swim with the Dolphins! We had a group of 5 kids and 5 adults. Although we had all paid to participate most of us adults thought we'd just watch but we quickly got wrapped up in the excitement and enjoyed the adventure as much as the... More

These dolphins are amazing creatures & fun to interact with! The dolphin area is clean & they appear to be well taken care of. The grounds that Discovery Bay is located on is nice. There are 2 pools.

What an unbelievable time with wife and 2 boys. My boys are 4 and 10 so we chose to do the dolphin encounter. It was amazing being that close to the dolphins and the boys couldn't get enough. The personal interaction was fabulous. They don't allow cameras or gopro's which really sucks and instead want to charge a ridiculous price... More

We took a ferry to the Dolphin Discovery at Isla Mujeres. The cost of the ferry was included in the dolhin package. We also were required to pay a docking fee of $8 per person. I was nervous I might get sea sick, but the ferry ride was great! We sat down below and had wonderful service, free refreshments and... More

The boat ride over alone was worth the trip. But once you arrive on Isla Mujeres you can do a little shopping, check out the beautiful beach (Playa Norte) or explore the island on a golf cart. Then you are taken to the prime attraction which has pools, food, drinks, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, observing sea lions and manatees. You... More

My husband and I booked the VIP package including lunch (buffet), meet with sea lions, manatees and dolphins. We got to ride on the dolphins and were in a group of 8 instead of 16 like the other groups. Everybody got their picture taken with each animal. I did feel that $160 for the pictures was way too much after... More

We had a great visit to Dolphin Discovery about 3 years ago and decided to return for the Royal Swim VIP to see the sea lions and manatees along with the dolphins. (I would not recommend paying extra for VIP if it is not already included in your package). Check in could have been smoother, but not a major issue.... More
