It's worth the price. But the photos are way too expensive, we paid 66 dollars each for a cd with 25 photos and, in my opinion, the photographer was not that good (we didn't love our photos). We had the royal swim experience and it was a very nice one with Picasso and America!

Loved our experience with the dolphins. The staff was great and paying the additional $20 for premium service was well worth it. Be prepared that you are not allowed to take your own pictures and the center asks a $100 for a CD of all the pictures or $35 per pictures but they are open to haggling.

Always wanted to do this. Yes, the dolphins are raised in captivity, but in an "open water" environment. 70% are born there. The trainers appear to be generally connected to the Dolphins they work with...it is a big, beautiful cage, but still is a cage. At the same time, if you have ever wanted tomget really close to these amazing... More

Going to Dolphin Discovery was an interesting experience. We started our day at the ferry location for Dolphin Discovery. Is it nice that the transportation for the ferry is included in the price of the excursion. Upon arrival at Dolphin Discovery, there was no instruction about where to go. We had a 12:30 time slot, and when asked where we... More

We did the snorkeling tour and the ferry into the downtown for shopping. We highly recommend the snorkeling to anyone. The boat ride was about 10 mins and the snorkeling about an hour in the water. We had 90% visibility the day we went and saw an octopus, an eel, various fish and some barracudas. The guide was excellent and... More

Lots of fun, pictures were very expensive, but worth it as it's a once in a lifetime experience, and they were much better than we could have taken. The VIP treatment made it special, the restaurant upstairs is very nice, and the service was excellent.
