We have booked for 1:15pm swim with dolphins. Transportation will be provided from our port to Dolphinaris. Will we get to check in and eat lunch first before swimming with dolphins. Will we also have time to kayak and paddle board after swimming with dolphins since it comes with our package? Thx

We're coming in a few days. My husband would like to do the dolphin encounter with my 4 yr old and 2 yr old. Can they both be with him in the water and are they required to pay? If they are required to pay, how much is it? I plan on being an observer - how much is that? Lastly how far is the place from tre royal Caribbean allure of the seas port and roughly how much should it be?

This excursion was the only one I booked through Royal because the price was the same. Taxis are readily available and included. I chose to walk back easy and beautiful 10 minute walk.
