We very much enjoyed the opportunity to swim and play with the dolphins. The trainers were very nice and accommodating. They did a great job too making you feel comfortable around the dolphins. I did not like the fact that it was $40 for one picture. That's too expensive,so we opted out of getting picture even though we wanted one.... More

You can hear the Dolphins crying that they want to get out. All day long in the pen, swim back and fourth while hearing the crashing of the waves from the sea but not being able to get through the fencing.

The kids loved that they were able to swim with dolphins. There was way too much talking in between all 3 swims we had planned. The kids got very bored in between. Some instructors let the kids swim out with an adult and some would not. I wished the kids got a bit more experience with this.

We booked this experience online which was 70% cheaper than booking on the day. We also got our photos 50% cheaper. Make sure you book your photos in advance as it's stupidly expensive to book on the day. Overall it was really informative and the activities with the dolphins was amazing. There were adults and very young children taking part... More

If you have a extra 100 us minimum then this is pretty cool. The base package is 100 with the big package costing around 150 us. It was one of the wifes bucket list items so we had to do it. You get to pet them and give a few commands but like everything else photos cost extra but it... More

We went to swim with the dolphins with my 5 year old daughter who loves any sea creatures! We had a great time and even though my daughter could not do some of the challenging maneuvers with dolphins in the pool the trainers made special arrangements so she could at least pose with the dolphins and take pictures!

I have never seen Dolphins before and I am very glad I went. The Dolphins of course were amazing, with all the tricks they did. The facilities were very clean and our tour guide did an amazing job! The Dorsolin (Sp?) was probably the best experience!

We booked the half day experience which costs $169 pp but we paid $129 due to a promotion through our hotel. Interaction with the dolphins is excellent but this is dragged out over many hours. We arrived at 12:30 for a 1 pm start but didn't start until 1:45 pm and finished at 4.45 pm. There are also 20 mins... More
