So fun to watch the dolphins, manatees, and sea lions. A beautiful facility. We enjoyed this area and it is only a short walk from the Catalonia Riviera Maya.

What a great experience for my entire family. The staff was wonderful, the dolphins were amazing and added bonus interacting with a sea lion and manatees. My wife booked through their website a few weeks ahead of time and got 40% off and that included transportation, which was right on time. My kids were a little nervous to do the... More

I had an amazing fun experience swimming with the dolphins. I cannot swim and I am afraid of deep waters, but the staff here were super wonderful and very detailed in exactly everything one must do. Would definitely recommend everyone to come here!!!

One of the highlights of our trip. Our kids will never forget it! Photo package is super expensive though... but we felt we had to buy because we couldn't bring our own cameras.

Right near the marina and a short walk from our resort and many other hotels you'll find this neat area. They have more then just the dolphins, they have seals, sea lions etc. We didn't pay to do any of it but enjoyed walking right next to it within ten feet or so from these animals.

Had a great day here we swam with dolphins but in groups with other people. It was good and was something I always wanted to do. We also fed the manatees and kissed the sea lion we had an amazing day but you do get stung on the prices for photos. If you can book ahead of travel and pick... More

I was able to book reservations for 40% off directly from their website. We choose the Royal Swim Plus and had time with dolphins, sea lions & manatees. The trainers were very knowledgeable and made the experience even more fun with their sense of humor. I was worried that we may have trouble with the foot push and dorsal ride,... More

I did the royal swim which means I got to interact with two dolphins. It was like being in a dolphin show which was really awesome. The only downside about this was that, during the encounter portion (kissing the dolphins, petting them, etc), it was impossible to take pictures. You need to buy their professional pictures if you want any.... More
