Reserved a spot to swim with the dolphins for me, my 23 year old son and my 16 year old son. What a great experience to swim with Jessica and Tug! All of the staff was super friendly and knowledgable. My middle son even befriended a dove 😀 We would definitely come back!

Intimate location where you get an up close and personal experience. Quiet secluded location. It was pretty cool. We had Bon and Alfonzo they were awesome and so was the staff.

Took my niece to swim with the dolphins as a memorable graduation gift. The experience exceeded my expectations. The staff was great and being with the dolphins brought joy to my heart, truly an amazing experience. My granddaughters, ages 8 &10 loved the Dockside Adventure. They interacted with and were able to touch the dolphins. The highlight of our vacation.

We had an absolute blast visiting the Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Responder. My 7 year old and I did the Connect to Protect and enjoyed every single minute of swimming with the dolphins! Baby Jett was by far our favorite dolphin!

The trainers and staff (and dolphins!) here really do a great job making this a fun and educational experience. The time in the water was a lot of fun. The dolphin encounters are very structured - you're not just "hanging out" with the dolphins, they are doing tricks that involve you. That's a pro or a con depending what you're looking for. They have a photographer who gets really great pictures of you with the dolphins, but predictably it's quite expensive to purchase the photos (I believe $35 for a single photo, and more than $100 for the whole batch). Also, there is a "lecture" about dolphins and conservation before getting into the water - while this is educational, it was too long, especially compared to the relatively short amount of time spent in the water. Overall, very fun experience, and it felt good to be contributing to a good cause.
