We went for the open ocean offer and it was so much worth it. "our" dolphin, cacique, was so cool and we had a lot of fun swimming with him. Very helpful and friendly staff who took great pictures and videos of us.

This was a wonderful excursion, I am deathly afraid of water, but the staff was more than accommodating to ensure that I had an excellent time either way. We would highly recommend using Unexco for your excursions.

I was nervous about trying it but felt that their facility and staff for Discover Scuba was perfect. Large 17ft pool to try scuba first with great support from Jarvis the instructor. Then out to the 40ft dive. They made me very comfortable throughout the process. I would not hesitate to use them anytime.

Of course it's a bit expensive (180USD + taxes for the swim), but it worth it. They take you on a boat to bring you to the "lagoon" (totally artificial), so they don't let anybody accompagnying you or they would have to pay 86USD, i.e. the price for kissing a dolphin, even if they don't want to do anything and...

We originally booked the Dolphin Encounter as a shore excursion through Carnival Cruise Lines. We were cruising with our 10 year old grand-daughter and there was a minimum age of 12 for the Dolphin Swim. When we arrived at UNEXSO, we learned that there was actually only a minimum height requirement instead of age, so we were OK for the... More
