It's been my dream to swim with dolphins. I was very excited to do this experience but it was just an ok experience, the staff didn't seem to care much about whether you were having a good time and the service wasn't great. I thought...More

First time swimming with dolphins wanted longer - its a wonderful experience! Overpriced photograph system - but how else are you going to capture it!

Spent the day here as a dolphin trainer. Carlos was fantastic, and his empathy with the dolphins was amazing. Our little group of 3 had an unforgettable day which I will remember for ever. Absolutely loved the dolphin footpush and kisses.

Get the CD of the pics. Don't rely on them to give you a download otherwise.
Hi We did the platinum dolphin swim on 21 April. The swim was a fantastic experience but afterwards we purchased a photograph for my daughter at a cost of $39 USD. We were given the choice of a physical or digital copy of the photograph and my daughter chose the digital option. We were told that the photograph would be emailed to us within 24 hours but we have never received it. We contacted Delphinus via the 'live chat' function on their website and were told that they had a record of our purchase but were unable to retrieve the photograph from the server and the IT department were working on it, but they had no estimated time of resolution. The live chat function hasn't been available since and we have received no reply to two further emails that we have sent to the Delphinus photo email address to try to find out when we can expect to receive the photo. We have tried calling several times on the toll free number on the website from the UK but there is no reply. Can you help? We are so disappointed to not have any photographs at all of this experience.
