We got there quite early and could stroll around and learned a bit more about their work. And we understood that the... More

Had an amazing time swimming with the Dolphins. They did tricks, and were extremely playful. Something the whole family can do together.

Great show. Very disappointed when it's time to buy pictures most are blurry,out of frame and heads cut off. You have to buy all of the pictures for well over one hundred USA dollars. SO VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS.

We had a fantastic family day in the water, interacting with dolphins, an experience we will never forget. The whole set up is efficient and friendly, the photos aren't cheap but who would not want to take the memories home with them, very highly recommended !

Awesome time to go in late winter. We went with our kids (3, 7, 10), but only the 10 yr old loved it. The others were a little too afraid to take advantage. I suggest at least the activity that lets you swim with the dolphin, you get lots of contact, a kiss, dance, swim, petting and splashing. If possible... More
