It was really a nice experience, the staff was friendly. We just felt sad for dolphins that swimming pools were quiet small. We wanted to try this but still mitigated after.

Don't go this is cruelty of the highest form Dolphins are not pets and if you want to see them jump in a boat and see them in their natural habitat just a few metres away Please don't go here

Horrible and sad. Don't go don't support captivity of dolphins. Take a boat ride to see them in the wild instead. This place is dirty and you can tell the dolphins are depressed.
