“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

This was not cheap, worked out about £400 for a family of three but I have to say it was one hell of an experience and you really get up close to interact with the dolphins. My 7yr old was utterly mesmorised!

The adventure with dolphins was amazing. It was a bit expansive but for once a life time, it was worth it.

“Dolphin Adventure”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

My daughter is not a confident swimmer so chose the Dolphin Adventure package. Once in a wetsuit, we were shown into a room and shown a presentation giving information about dolphins and what to expect.
Once in the water, there was the opportunity to 'hold' a dolphin, to kiss the dolphin and to dance with the dolphin. There was a professional photographer and photos were available to purchase afterwards.
In order to spectate, there was an additional cost to gain access to the beach where you were able to take your own photos.
My daughter loved it and thought it was a fabulous experience.

“Amazing to swim with dolphins!”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

It was an experience of a lifetime! While it was not one-on-one, it was in groups of 5-6 which is almost close enough and relativly cheap when considering the prices for this type of event worldwide.
