I did quite a bit of research on the best destination before booking a dolphin swim during our cruise and decided that this looked the best. It was a fantastic experience and the centre is located within an adventure park with loads of other activities to take part it. There's Tequila tasting, replica Mayan ruins, a beautiful lagoon, a zip-line,... More

In January of 2017 our group was scheduled for the Manataee adventure in Cozumel. We spent almost an hour in the water with only minimal interaction with the Manatee. There were large groups coming in and out of the area who we learned later had bought both the Dolphin and Manatee experience. When another group came in beside us and... More

We had an amazing time doing the VIP Royal Swim. It was the highlight of the trip for everyone in our adult group of 6. Pictures are overpriced at $70pp, ($420 for our group of 6, and you have to buy them all, you'll want these memories) so be prepared for that. I feel for paying the high price you... More

I booked this privately several months in advance. I was told over the phone that our family would have our own dolphin and we wouldn't be grouped together with other people. We got there and they were behind schedule. We were placed in a group with other people. When we told them that we were told we would be by... More

The manatees were amazing. Up close and personal interaction with up to 3 manatees. They love their lettuce and were fun to feed and kiss. Much more fun for me than my previous dolphin experience. This is a very nice facility, plan ti e to wander the park and see the seal show and alligators too.

My wife and I, both in our 70's had never tried this. Turns out, it was one of the best excursions we ever experienced on a cruise. It's over an hour in the water and it's just plain fun. I'd do it again any time.

The Dolphin interaction is nice- did the Royal Swim - although it seems to be all about the photos for this company- Like in many other reviews, Yes, they try to gouge you with the picture prices. Very Sad! They do not permit cameras in the dolphin area. Many times I asked to get a couple pics of my whole... More

Fantastic swim with dolphins, over an hour, and worth every penny. However, arrange to buy pictures of you before hand at the main desk. Otherwise you are in for a rude price awakening as in $35/one photo. The photos are very fine, but I had to insist at the front desk for an opportunity at the front desk to buy... More

This excursion is a must! My husband and I went on this excursion on 2/2/17 and we are both in our mid 20's. We were on a carnival cruise and have always been interested in interacting with dolphins. Booking this excursion with the ship is quite expensive- so I booked directly with the website and this is my experience. When... More
