5 members of our group (4 teens and preteens and one adult) spent an hour with the dolphins here and loved every minute of it. The staff are extremely professional and, from what I can tell the dolphins were well treated and seemed to be playing as well. I took movies and we were provided with a cd with 150+ Also downloadable photos. Great fun.

We had to do something to fill our day with the constant rain, and this fit the bill. Very fun and engaging being in the water with the dolphins. Staff was very nice and informative. Pictures are expensive.

We did the Royal Swim with the dolphins. We booked it after watching the free daily show. They offer a great deal when booked directly through them.

We could tell that the dolphins were very well loved and cared for.

Our dolphin trainer was Fabian. We was very knowledgeable and friendly. Being that close to the two dolphins was an incredible experience that my wife and I will never forget. They are amazing creatures and so smart. It was really cool to see the interaction between dolphin and trainer up close. The foot push and dorsal pull were amazing experiences and worth every penny.

We cannot wait until our kids are old enough to do this again with us!

I would highly recommend this place, the dolphins are train impeccably. They do exactly what the trainers tell them to do. When you interact with the dolphins they are so exhilarating. We had so much fun.

This was a show but more an environment educated show .the dolphins looked as though they were well kept and not stressed and really happy to do it .there wasn't show after show.as far as I could make out there was 1 show a day and a few photo sessions. Which they seemed happy to do.we thought 1 or 2 may have been a bit grumpy as they just swam around in the pool and left alone .Which was good as they were not under any pressure
