The actual time spent with the dolphins seemed really short (only 40 mins), especially if there is a big group (each group though is about 15 people?) as you have to share your dolphin around (of course). The whole experience felt to factory/production like with...More

Because of the transportation and a lot of "waiting time" you have only 2 hours of activity (instead of 4 hours). The activity is very nice but you are not allowed to take photos with the dolphin. You can buy it but it costs 75$...More

Six, yes. Younger? Probably not. They have to wear a life jacket as they water is probably 8-14' deep. I'd consider booking when you get to Bahia Principe. We stayed there as well and were able to negotiate a better rate.
