  • The concept that I find very interesting! The Dolphinarium is built directly into the ocean, instead of having built a giant aquarium on land. Pens are made of screens that let the water of the ocean, leaving the dolphins in water quality that is natural to them. The show was very good, we feel that there is a great relationship between trainers and animals. It hangs a lot of respect, trainers meet the dolphins and their limitations, and the dolphins themselves are players, curious which suggests that they are well. The best is of course the interaction with them, an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. I would go back. :)

  • Went here during part of a catamaran cruise. Was great to see the dolphin, kept in the sea but fenced off. Watched dolphin show, then got chance to swim with dolphins. Amazing experience.  more »
