You go to swim with the dolphins...not for the aquarium!

Swimming with dolphins is definitely one of the greatest things i have ever done! I loved every second of it! The trainers are so great and kind and we had a blast swimming... read more

We went to the interactive aquarium initially planning to just have a look around the aquarium, but got talked into doing the underwater trek as they were doing a 2 for 1 offer and we are so glad we did! The aquarium itself is quite small and probably wouldn't be worth visiting if you aren't doing one of the extra... More

I visited this place with my 2 kids (8 yrs and 2 Yrs). For extra fee, 8Yrs old had fun playing with dolphins. But this facility is too small to be qualified as Aquarium. Specially for adult (who is not doing Dolphin play), it should be free entry. Just at the end of day, there is a dolphin show which... More

We had a great time today swimming with the dolphins. Everyone was fantastic from start to finish. We are staying at the Hard Rock and used resort credits for the excursion but upgraded to the Primax package. Well worth every penny!!! We got more time and got to do the "push" which was so awesome. My 11 and 13 year... More

This place was good for kids, but 15 USD per individual of 3 years old or more seems to be expensive. I guess is worthy if you do dolphins interaction, and even better if you go to see the dolphin show at 6 pm. You will need and extra ticket for that, but is already included in your 15USD fee....

This was a fun place to visit! The kids loved seeing the 'Nemo' and 'Dory' fish. They were able to take lots of pictures with their cameras. It's not as interactive as we hoped, as the only thing we got to physically interact with was the stingrays. The kids got to touch them, but they moved pretty fast so it... More

My only problem with the aquarium was that it was small with few different tanks with fish. I did not know it was an exhibit in a kind of mall complex until I got there. I bought the basic ticket so could not swim with dolphins etc. but would watch. I think the tanks were very well taken care of.... More

There's a few different packages. We went with the swim with dolphins package. It was $130 a person, however the agency gave us $30 off another event/tour we wanted to do (not sure if everyone does this. I believe there are cheaper ones where you just pet the dolphins. It started off pretty good. There wasn't a very long wait... More
