“Fantastic ”
Review of Dolphin Encounter

Dolphin Encounter
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Visited while ported in Roatan.
We booked through our cruise and paid £88 each for the dolphin encounter. We got about 30 minutes in the water with the dolphins. We was in a group of about 8, waist deep with 1 instructor and 1 dolphin.
The dolphin performed a number of tricks for us. We even felt the dolphins heart beat which was absolutely amazing.
The instructor taught us many things and we could ask as many questions as we wanted.
You can take your own photos/videos however they do take a number of professional photos which you can purchase but I thought they was too expensive.

Absolutely worth a visit for sure! Fantastic day with a fantastic animal!

I am an experienced diver with a long list of encounters and experiences, including dolphins. If you do this, do the second half with the 30minute swim with dolphins! The first part is a cheeky meet and greet with flipper, but the second part is a for real swim, play, touch and flounder around with these amazing animals who just want to play with you.

Seems expensive, but you want to check it out? Pay the premises day fee of $25 and roam the grounds all day. Sit on the dolphin pen dock and just watch the near action. Dangle your feet near the water and the dolphins will come over and say hello.

I’ve wanted to swim with dolphins for years, and this didn’t disappoint. The experience was a couple hours. It started with learning about dolphins, and the second half was snorkeling with them. It was wonderful. There were times it was just me and five other dolphins. I highly recommend this.

We stayed on Roatan for a week. We were looking for something fun to do with the kids that would be memorable. And this was it! We swam with the dolphins for 1/2 an hour. It was worth every penny! My husband realized the dolphins would chase us if we swam fast and away from them. So my two teenage daughters and my husband swam away from the dolphins and they would chase us around playfully. We had a great big game of “tag” going in with the dolphins. It was so memorable. The dolphins seemed happy and playful! It was an awesome experience!
