I loved every moment of this experience. From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed. You are fitted out for shoes to swim in. You are explained in depth about the dolphins, what family they come from, difference between whales and dolphins, and you are...More

I cannot answer that question. Our daughter was too young for that experience. However, I would recommend giving them a call. They are very friendly and speak both French and English.
