We went on some resort credit from the resort that we were staying at, but when we saw the price to go there, we wouldn't have gone otherwise. As well, the pictures were really expensive so we didn't end up getting any. Apart from that, actually swimming with... More

Although it was expensive, the experience was well worth it. Even if you can't swim, their lifeguards are there to help.

This is sweet, the Dolphins are so cute and fun, good place to take children. However, forget about the pictures unless you have lots of $ to spend.

Everyone should try it! My wife and I paid for the "Royal Package" it's 169$, it included every activity with the Dolphins, it also included a VIP Package, which is basically nicer lockers, better food, and Air Conditioned areas, VERY WORTH IT. We reserved right as we exited the ferry. They have a booth set up at the entrance. Because... More

I took my extended family to Dolphin Discovery in July. They absolutely loved it and our time with the dolphins was well spent. I liked the fact that lunch was included -- something you don't get while swimming with dolphins in the Florida Keys. This said, my family very much wanted a few photos. But the rate this place attempted... More

Loved it! Was more than we had imagined. We did it through the Beach Palace. My 16 & 11 year old both had a great time. Trainers were very informative and helpful. Only downside is the cost of the pictures!
