We bought this package on our flight to Cancun. It was a great value. You only find out on the ferry over to the island that any photographs or videos are prohibited! So you are pretty much held hostage if you want any pictures of your experience. The photographs are more expensive than the excursion. And the photographer could care... More

Everything about this experience was wonderful including the boat ride to Isla Mujeres. Swimming with dolphins was on my "bucket list" and it was better than I ever imagined.

Trainers were rude and had no patience with my 6yo kid that was freezing and little scared. They did not try to help him with the interaction and just tried him like any adult. They yield instructions and go as quick as possible just to get all done as quick as possible. Off course they did no allow phones so... More
