Up to a 100 spinner dolphins. only 7 of us in the water. crystal clear, just jumped with a mask and snorkel. Stunning. Then 2 magical dives. The coral gardens are amazing and the cave system with the sun dappling through is lovely. I have dived this site twice now, May and September. I will do it again

This is an amazing dive spot with a beautiful reef, some small caves and archipelagos. Stunning fish world with a specially a lot of clown fish and parrot fishes. Although no dolphins. For the snorklers I would not recommend it, looking for the dolphins can only be done is a life safe vest and between two rows of buoys.

We visited the Dolphin house on the way back from diving at St Johns and were not dissapointed by the dolphins - saw 2 schools and snorkeled with them. The only downside is that there were a lot of other boats and too many people in the water at the same time. But you WILL see dolphins....

So many dolphins in one place at one time... wow. This was a snorkelling trip on the way to a dive trip. You will not believe your eyes, I was hoping to see a few dolphins but I never expected to see a pod of this size!!

Dolphin House reef is a nice relaxed dive. Unfortunately no dolphins during my trip, but still a great dive with plenty to see including a small cave to swim through.

We were lucky to swim with a big group of dolphins. It also makes a lot of fun to dive in the canyons and discover gorgeous colorful corals.
