Wow. This was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip to Cancun. This activity will leave a lasting memory in your life. OK, specifics: 1.

The experience with the dolphins, sea lions, and manatees was great... But the RIDICULOUS amount it cost for photos really took away from the experience. And the fact you can't take your own photos is ludicrous. They were also extremely snobby about it. We also booked over the phone and made it clear (so we thought) that we wanted the... More

Had a great time interacting and swimming with the dolphins and Manatees! What beautiful animals. Trainers were friendly and skilled. The photos are expensive but are high quality. My 6 year old and 8 year old both were able to do the boogie board push and belly swim. Sun gets hot so wear a hat and rash guard and sunglasses.... More

Swimming with dolphins has always been one for my bucket list, so with the option being so near to our hotel, we couldn't pass up on the option! We had the 1 hour long session and it was amazing, well worth the money and such an experience, you touched the dolphin, watched them do tricks, learnt about them and you... More

Great experience, but they do not allow you to capture your memories on your own, which really made for a negative experience. They take pictures for you, but beware they will rip you off in upwards of $200-300 above the already expensive experience!! I recommend hiring someone to take pictures from the sidewalks alongside vs paying them - it is... More

If you have been to a pool or captive dolphin swim before this is the same. Nothing new. Just more animals in captivity doing tricks for money. And it is expensive There is better options in the area. Don't be afraid to shop.
