I'm not a fun of keeping animals closed but I love dolphins. There are more then 10 in the place. Tours for jurists are very often and my impression was that it is too often for dolphins.

Amazing experience meeting and touching these beautiful creatures. I loved that the guide taught us about the animals which was informative and fun. She fielded all of our questions with solid information, and gave ample time to touch the dolphins. Awesome!

This was expensive, but worth every penny. I really like the way that the dolphins here are treated, with the utmost respect for their individual autonomy and needs. I had a great time.

Very pricy for what you get, also was told it included pictures. Not the case, you have to pay for pictures but there is a photographer taking pictures.

The first part of it where we sat at the edge of the dock. I would say no bc there was nothing to hold onto and when the Dolphins came over to say hi a lot of water came with them. But then we moved to the beach side of the... More

We decided last minute to have the kids do the dolphin experience. Because the company had last minute spots available, we received the hour experience for the 30 minute price. Don't know how often this happens. We may have... More
