Ed got to swim with the Dolphins. We got to see baby dolphins while there. The scenery was beautiful. The drive from Orlando was awesome. I am so glad we got this opportunity.

I was very impressed with this organization and their program . I saw children swimming with Dolphin and learning so much about this amazing creature. Keep up the good work, can't wait to go back again.

One of the best dolphin encounters that I have had. I enjoyed it so much that I have returned several times with family and friends so they could have this experience.

This was a wonderful experience. It was the peak of our trip. I took my sister there for her birthday gift. We wanted to go back again the next day but had a busy schedule. I would recommend this experience to everyone at least once in a life time. I am still talking about it.

The entire staff was very helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable about dolphins and their safety was first. I enjoyed every minute of my time spent with the dolphins and even paid for the photographer to take pics of my fun time here...I would recommend this activity for anyone sitting on the fence debating whether or not to spend the money...
