Now resting under a shady palapa after an inexpensive and wonderful VIP day of kissing a dolphin (no, it did not turn into a prince - but almost), eating and drinking all we want of well prepared seafoods, beverages (with and without alcohol) and more, watching many dolphins and people do water aerobics, and swim. We thank Guillermo for his... More

This was just for the kids really as my wife and I had experienced swimming with dolphins in Cancun before. We purchased the full dolphin experience for our kids and we got the basic dolphin swim along with VIP tickets not realizing what it included. The Dolphin experience was very long and compared to what we had before and a... More

We went on this tour as part of our members benefits. It was a great tour and the dolphins were wonderful. They were taken care very well by the staff.

Swimming with dolphins is a little pricey in general, and this was the best value I could find - we did the swim with dolphins, manatees and sea lions. It was awesome!

We came here with 4 adults and 2 small children and everyone had a great time. We bought the royal swim but when we got there we upgraded for $40 and swam with the manatees and sting ray's we took a photo with the sea lions. The young ones weren't allowed in the water with the sea lions. We also... More

Today I hoped to fulfil my dream of swimming with dolphins in their natural environment. I chose this experience as this is how it is advertised. The Dolphins may be in the sea but they are still enclosed. Although I enjoyed this experience it was dampened by my guilt of being a tourist who pays to keep these beautiful animals... More

We went to Dolphin Discovery with an open mind as we knew that the animals (dolphins, sea manatees and sea lions) were in the sea, rather than in a tank. The animals were in their natural environment however they were in an enclosed area of the sea. Starting off we jumped on a catamaran from Cancun to Isla Majures at... More

We visited here as a family of 4 through a Thomson platinum package. This trip was well organised starting with a coach pick up from our hotel in Riviera Maya to Cancun (30 mins) then a ride on a catamaran to the Island. The boat ride was around 45 mins, on board was a continental breakfast and un-limited drinks. On... More
