The island is very beautiful and the water is so clear. The park pool was clean and kids loved it. Snorkeling was easy to use and not long of a wait. Same with zip lines. The lunch was good food and service was excellent. The...More

Loved the interactions with the dolphins. Enjoyed the activities with the dolphins. The dolphins were well trained. The staff were very accommodating to people who could not swim so were not disadvantaged as a result. Overall an amazing activity!

Disappointed the water was choppy, the photographer did not take any pictures of me with the dolphin alone, was looking forward to photos of my entire family, felt it was rushed while other groups where still in the water.

Unfortunately the cruise was overbooked, with Dolphin Discovery not having any record of our tickets. A second boat was arranged for us and a few other couples who had booked through Tripadvisor, and we were given the option to either choose a refund or the...More

Had a good experience at dolphin discovery. I went to dolphin discovery in Cabo, so I wanted to go again when I traveled to Cancun. I had a great time, but I feel like the trainers in Cabo were more knowledgeable, and let us do...More
