The staff and trainers are incredible. My dream was to swim with the dolphins and I did it on my 50th birthday, They made sure that it was a experience I will never forget.

The experience was great, but the dolphin pools were not as clear and clean as others I have seen pictures of on the internet. The dolphins were VERY well trained, and staff was very friendly. The sales "sharks" for the picture disk afterwards were not very nice, and the picture disk was pretty pricey.

Just strolling around the various water ponds around Dolphin Discovery watching the trainers do their thing is a terrific experience by itself...but joining them in the water and making friends with these amazing, intellegent creatures is a memory never to be forgotten.....go for it !!!

We did the 'royal' package which included feeding the manatees before swimming with the dolphins. Staff was excellent, the animals seemed very well taken care of and happy. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Only complaint was that the picture package actually cost MORE than the dolphin experience itself. If it had been reasonably priced (less than $100 US,we... More

We stayed at Sandos Caracol and our Amstar Rep sold us this day trip. A shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel and brought us back afterwards. Excursion included Manatee interaction,... More

I was on an all inclusive family vacation and the hotel offered swimming with dolphins. I regret not doing this in Hawaii so I was pleased that I was able to do it here.

We got to beta test a fun new games with five dolphins. We threw soccerballs back and forth with dolphins who threw them back to us. So much fun. Also enjoyed feeding the manatees a lot of lettuce and petting them. Really rare to be able to interact with an endangered species. Plus got to interact with a playful sealion,... More
