  • Awesome experience.....My wife and I... along with the trainer were the only people in the pool... They took lot of time with us and there was no rush to get out... We had a great time. The staff was so friendly and courteous.... I would definitely recommend doing this while you are there... And get the package they offer that the dolphins lift you out of the water.... It is like nothing you have ever experienced.... Don't miss out on this... Pictures are a bit expensive... but like everything else in Mexico negotiable... But well worth the money...
  • The experience was good, not what you'd expect. You do not get one on one with dolphin and trainer. It is a group with the same package you have selected. Pictures cost a tremendous amount for one and you arent allowed your own photo source. Dolphins were great and very well behaved and were very well fed. "First experience last forever"
  • 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.
  • Great outing for the whole family. Highly recommend
  • Took Royal swim with the dolphins!! Best experience of my life!! The dolphins are so cute!!! ❤️ will do it again when I'm back!
