This experience is definitely worth your time and money! Our group spent 90 minutes total with the dolphins, and we had an incredible experience. The trainers are informative, and you can tell they have a strong bond with the dolphins.

The facility is lovely. The dolphin experience is good . However they wanted to charge $153.00 for pictures. We had no intention of spending that kind of money. The dropped the offer to $99.00 for 16 pictures. We did not buy. They charge for lockers.

Just as a preface, I'll say you could easily spend $500-600 between two people for 45 minutes of entertainment. My wife and I did the lower level(Dorsal ride) package that was highlighted by holding onto a dolphin's dorsal fin as it swam. The retail price...More

Hi, looking at booking the Triple Adventure for my boyfriend and I online for $79.50. Are prices on the day really double? On the website it shows free round trip transport, do they collect from the Riu Tequila? Also if we were to book online, is the $49PP photo package worth it? Some reviews show photos on the day can cost $200+. Thank you!
