All the dolphins there were born in captivity and according to the trainer live much longer than in the wild - they seem happy and playful and the trainers don't force them to do anything they don't wish but reinforce their behavior with treats. I...More

We did the dolphin trainer for a day program which is the way to go not only because you get lockers, lunch, water/beers, two printed photos, and towels, but also because of the personalized experience. You do need to allow yourself a lot of time...More

From the Royal Caribbean port it was only like a 10 min cab ride and its was about $8-10. We only had to pay for the cab ride up there cause on the way back they thought we were with the cruise excursion group.
