We just returned from our summer family vacation in Cancun and decided to swim with the dolphins. This has been on my wife's bucket list for a long time. We paid for the VIP package that includes the dolphin interaction, being pulled through the water by the dolphins and being pushed by our feet. This was one of the coolest... More

Being a thrill seeker, this has to be one of the coolest things I have ever done. I chose the the Sea Life Discovery Plus. I got to interact with a seal, a manatee, & 2 dolphins. I learned a lot, for instance, did you know a manatee is the cousin of the elephant? The facility was clean, they offered... More

My granddaughter age 11 loved this. Well organized. Animals seem well cared for. We did dolphins, manatees and sea lion. You get up close and personal with each of them. It was fun.

My husband and I enjoyed our dolphin experience. Our dolphin's name was Aisha and she was so sweet. The whole process felt a bit rushed and the trainers seemed a bit stressed. I felt bad for our trainer because her voice couldn't reach everyone in our group and she had to repeat herself. Perhaps the trainers can be given mics... More
