  • Swimming with dolphins that r trapped in s pool where they are feed dead fish in exchange for tricks is not educational  more »
  • So inevitably, a reviews mixed. On the one hand, an activity that offers unforgettable memories. Pleasant minutes! But it is not cheap, I fell over a childhood dream to achieve. Still, it took decades before decide me. It's done, I clung to a dolphin and we traveled a few meters! Even if we were told that the dolphins were old and 'better' (fed daily, no predators, have always been high in captivity) in these centres, we can have a twinge seeing their pelvis. Nevertheless, I had a good time. The dolphins were players. The older (and blind!) looked serene. You can learn lots of things with the monitors and the team and adorable and friendly! Go your way if you don't like the concept. The activity is very expensive and you have a surplus if you want photos or videos. But if this dear to your heart, do take a look.
