This was a wonderful experience. It was the peak of our trip. I took my sister there for her birthday gift. We wanted to go back again the next day but had a busy schedule. I would recommend this experience to everyone at least once in a life time. I am still talking about it.

They spent the right amount of time teaching you about dolphins befoe. All the staff was friendly, helpful and glad to spend the time with you. The time with the dolphins was simply amazing. What beautiful mammals and to be that close to them...touching and interacting with them was memorable. Our six year old loved it. It is not cheap,... More

I actually did my dolphin swim at the Ocean Side location, about 4 miles down the road. I went to this location (Bay side) the next day, just to walk around and see what it was like. The main thing that I noticed was that the lagoon where the dolphins swim was much more natural looking than the brick and... More

The entire staff was very helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable about dolphins and their safety was first. I enjoyed every minute of my time spent with the dolphins and even paid for the photographer to take pics of my fun time here...I would recommend this activity for anyone sitting on the fence debating whether or not to spend the money...

We stopped by for an hour while driving to Key West from Miami. It was an entertaining distraction. Most large aquariums have more exciting (and equally educational) shows.

Educational adventure for all of us. Staff was friendly and truly cared about the animals. Animals seem well cared for and safety of everyone including the animals was primary concern!

I might have given it three stars due the crazy cost, except the money goes directly to rehabilitation and education. Very informative and fun!

I can't review the actual Dolphin swim. We stopped in late December 2015 in hopes of swimming with the Dolphins. We never made it past the front desk. It will cost you a mortgage payment if you have a family of 4. Be prepared for sticker shock and no-refund. I wanted to see a glimpse of what I was paying... More
