“Favorite Experience Ever!”
Review of Dolphin Encounter

Dolphin Encounter
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

I grew up loving dolphins and was beyond excited for this experience. It was everything I was hoping it would be! Absolutely loved the dolphin encounter with the snorkeling. Such a wonderful experience, the trainers truly care about the dolphins. I wish I could have gotten to spend a little more time with the dolphins during the encounter but am so glad we decided to do the snorkeling session because it was so awesome getting to see the dolphins and for them to come up while snorkeling and be able to touch them and watch them swim together. The only downside is how expensive the photo package was for the professional photos at the gift shop, but very glad we got them!

Took this excursion through Carnival Miracle in May 2018 and it was fantastic! Divided us into groups of about 8 for the encounter time, including petting, stroking, delightful interaction in clear water about waist deep. Very large lagoon so dolphins had huge area and they seemed free and happy. Colorful fish swimming about as well, which was cool. Got great underwater video with my GoPro during the encounter session, but cameras were not allowed during the deeper snorkeling time. Probably too many dropped. Snorkel time was too cool, in water up to 20 or 30 feet deep, but quite clear. Dolphins would come racing beneath, come up between you, playing, rolling. Magnificent animals. Highly recommend!

This was one of the shore excursions we took while on a cruise. We learned about dolphin behavior and got to have pictures taken with the dolphin. Only thing that could have improved this would have been more time with the dolphins.
