  • It's an unforgettable experience. My three kids had an amazing time. The personnel is very professional. 
  • great experience my children were so excited, make sure you haggle and don't be afraid to walk away over the cost of photos you can get them a lot cheaper 
  • Excellent facilities. Well looked after dolphins sea lions and manatees. Pre booked through Thomas cook but can book through rep or hotel. Did have to add on cost of photos at just over 60 pounds each...  read more »
  • Took Royal swim with the dolphins!! Best experience of my life!! The dolphins are so cute!!! ❤️ will do it again when I'm back!
  • Choose different company. Avoid Dolphins discovery! Totally not worth it! We bought the most expensive package royal swims for 2 adults and 1 kid via internet - it was 360 USD. It was not possible to buy this package with photos. The other, lower package could be extended by buying photos for 30 USD for each person. Of course we weren't allow to make pictures during the dolphins program. After the program was finished, they offered us photos from around 8-9 activities of each one of us for crazy price 209 USD (the men said it was already after discount!!!). They offered one picture of one person for 40 or 50 USD. We didn't know what to say. Finally we left sad with no pictures, no nice memories. They didn't earn money for done pictures. We felt cheated. We travelled a lot via Mexico and only this dolphin discovery was huge disapointment. We always bought pictures. ex... In Akumal we had a young men that took us for snorkelling with turtles, made us pictures under water with coral reef, turtles, strays, spent with us about one hour and sold us pictures of whole family for 35 EUR for whole family. We snorkelled in coral reef barrier in Cozumel and also were offered pictured of family for 35 USD. We would understand and accept higher price as well, but not 210 USD. Moreover on the way back we met a Mexican men that just quit the job in this place because they didn't pay him and never pay him for done job. He was sales person. We gave him a ride home.He was good men and we wished him good lack with finding job becuase he said he hoped to find one next day. He spoke very good English.
  • Well worth the fee to interact with the dolphins. We came in a not so busy time. Peak times may prove less favorable with more people to share the dolphins. The picture packages too expensive even though I still purchased.
  • this sucks, terrible place, dolphins belong in the ocean with their families, need to stop the Japenese from capturing and killing these magnificent intelligent creature
  • All i can say is wow wee - we had a ball with the dolphins , they were so much fun. You hav to do it , and get the photos
