  • Our Dolphin Discovery experience was the highlight of our cruise!!! We arrived early and one of the trainers took us on a tour of the facility. We lucked out and were the only 2 in our group, so we wound up getting to spend extra time with the dolphins. We started off with the "baby" dolphin, helping to "train" him. Then we moved over to the alpha male for the real fun. Hands down a once in a lifetime experience. Well worth every penny spent. The dolphins were AWESOME!!! The staff was courteous and knowledgeable.
  • It was very fun, the trainer was great. The dolphins were very well trained and it was wonderful. They dolphins had plenty of room to stay in and they were treated well. I would recommend this to anyone.
  • Please educate yourself on the horrible life dolphins live when imprisoned for your entertainment. Please do not go to these types of places, seeing free dolphins on a sunset cruise is far more amazing
  • An exceptionall experience! The best shore excursions on this cruise. Our trainer was so knowledgeable and patient. A memory for a lifetime! Great staff and, of course, the dolphins were awesome! Such beautiful creatures!
  • Not at all impressed by this excursion we booked for our stop in Tortola. The water is gross, the dolphins were held in tiny enclosures, and the staff was not friendly. Things didn't start well when a jelly fish was pulsating towards us as we waited with our back to the dock, as instructed. The kids were so scared and wanted to get out immediately. The trainer would not answer us when we asked repeatedly if it was a jelly. Just called someone over with a net. Halfway through, the poor dolphin stopped responding to the trainer. Nothing was organized. Some of the people in our group didn't even get to engage with the dolphin. Don't support this place. I feel guilty that we ever chose to do this.
