The dolphin swim encounter was really special. I did this with my daughter and we both loved it so much. The trainer was wonderful and we were able to touch the Dolphins and do tricks with them and feed them too.

I enjoyed the experience. My wife loved it even more. The pictures were really good, but the prices for the pictures was insulting. I felt especially bad for a single mother with 2 boys that was forced to spend a minimum of $214 just to get any picture of her or her boys with a dolphin because of the requirement... More

For $30 more you could grab a fin and swim with them. Our leader was so good with handling the dolphins. It was an awesome experience!! We signed up... More

An excellent day & experience with such intelligent creatures! They obviously enjoy doing everything they do & the people who train them, must be patient & dedicated. Lots of other things to do, we have been here 3 times in the last few years & it is worth the price.
