This is up there with the dream of driving a zamboni. Getting in the water and playing with the dolphins is absolutely spectacular. They are incredibly smart, gentle creatures who are as sweet as they look. We highly recommend the experience.More

Did this in Tortola. Worth every dollar!....do the foot push and you go flying! Trainer is very patient and caring. You feel like taking the dolphins home with you.....they are so gentle. Nice facility. Even get a full lunch afterwards.

Book an early time slot. 10:00 or 10:30 is a perfect time.

On the photo CD- is it just your individual pictures on the cd or is it the whole group in the water with u at the time? I was considering buying the regular swim w/dolphins for my kids and husband and me upgrading & getting a special "Swim adventure memory package" for me. If I buy the special package for myself will it have pictures of my husband & kids on it? Or just me?
