  • I've walked past this every day for a week and my girlfriend is a huge animal lover who desperately wants to have a great experience with these animals but... (I'll disclaim the next bit by saying I'm no marine biologist) animals that can swim that fast should not be in cages (there's no other way to describe them) that small. Swimming with dolphins in the ocean is one thing, this is quite another.
  • Better to go see the Dolphins in the morning as they will swim up to see you than pay big $$# to be in the water.
  • It very good. Kids have a great time swimming with dolphins
  • One pays for the dolphins, but can't have your own camera. They sell the pictures they have taken for an extra $150!!!
  • Good
