  • This activity was on my teen-aged niece's must do list. I was a bit leery as the activity sounded so cliche.. " swim with the dolphins," but was overall pleasantly surprised. After a short ride on a c...  more »
  • Had an awesome time with Frieda the dolphin and Nancy the trainer! Very family friendly. Dolphins are in great shape.  more »
  • We got a 2 for 1, which made it definitely worthwhile. Pictures are expensive $150 CAD... But since we only paid for 1 admission, it was okay. The pictures are awesome... and worth it if you can spare...  more »

  • Amazing experience! We did the "royal swim" package which allowed us to ride camels and do more things with the dolphins. I recommend it since you get more time with the dolphins and get to do some amazing tricks with them. As everyone else has said, the prices for pictures are crazy!! $360 for 404 pictures of my family of 7. It is based on how many are in your party. Luckily, we 7 split the cost among ourselves. But we got a DVD of the pictures (which we are going to try to put on Google Drive) and 7 prints (6x10 I believe).
  • Dolphins were fun to swim with and were very well trained. The 15 min speed boat ride and camel loop for about 1 min were also fun. Our driver was 20 min late to pick us up which made us do activities in an oddball order. They also claimed a kayak experience but we didn't get to ride kayaks because "they didn't have paddles". So a bit of a bait and switch. Buffet food was also not good at all. The real issue with this place is the photo racket they are running. Their prices are far beyond ridiculous and they will not even allow you to bring your own camera to take your own pictures. Because our driver was late to pick us up we did activities out of order. Then they wanted to charge us even more for pictures after we finished all the activities because they had already made a DVD of the first activities we did and didn't want to include photos of the rest of the activities. All in all they were trying to charge us $200 for around 100 pictures. This is far beyond reasonable so we ended up buying nothing at all.
  • Best time ever. Staff was awesome. Once in a lifetime experience. Only complaint was the lunch included was a bit sub par for the price of the whole experience.
  • Great experience. Everybody is super nice here. I will definitely come back
  • RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE, ITS ONE BIG SCAM TO MY OPINION, they don’t let you take your own photos and then they are trying to sell you the pictures they took for $300. There are other places in the area you can swim with dolphins which are way more reasonable. WHEN WE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT ONE OF THE STAFF MEMBERS SAID “WE KNOW ITS CRAZY BUT THEY MAKE A LOT OF MONEY THIS WAY, MANAGEMENT DONT REALLY CARE YOURE ANGRY”. Well, I will make sure to put this review everywhere so less people will fall in the hands of this scam!!!!
