Definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Only complaint was that the picture package actually cost MORE than the dolphin experience itself. If it had been reasonably priced (less than $100 US,we... More

What a cool Thanksgiving day, swimming with Dolphins! I would honestly give the excursion itself a 5, it is knocked down to 4 due to the photo experience. We stayed at Sandos Caracol and our Amstar Rep sold us this day trip. A shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel and brought us back afterwards. Excursion included Manatee interaction,... More

I was on an all inclusive family vacation and the hotel offered swimming with dolphins. I regret not doing this in Hawaii so I was pleased that I was able to do it here.

We got to beta test a fun new games with five dolphins. We threw soccerballs back and forth with dolphins who threw them back to us. So much fun. Also enjoyed feeding the manatees a lot of lettuce and petting them. Really rare to be able to interact with an endangered species. Plus got to interact with a playful sealion,... More

The dolphin experience was great. Good value for your money. The pictures were very expensive, almost as much as the tickets for the dolphin experience.

It was a bit cold while in the water since I went in November but it was a great memorable experience. However they were so focused on taking pictures to be sold at the end that I started feeling so bad for the dolphins. Trainers were great as well. With that said, I'm also against wildlife captivity so seeing the... More
