This was a experience of a lifetime.Everyone, please go and swim with the dolphins. You will have a great memory, not just the dolphins but of your visit to the Big Island.

It was a great experience with my 3 year daughter. She spent the time just with the dolphins and the trainer.

What a cool experience. We sepnt approx 40 minutes in the water with the dolphins. It is kind of expensive, but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience. Those dolphins are really smart!

What a fabulous experience for all ages ranging from 8 to 54. Once we swallowed the hefty price tag, we couldn't have been more pleased. Our time spent with multiple dolphins is unforgettable. Digital photo package also worth the extra $200.

I am a dental hygienist and my business card even has a dolphin on it because I love them so much. They allowed me to brush the dolphin’s teeth and it was like a dream come true ! I think the dolphin enjoyed it too.

Had a great time and the staff was knowledgeable and made the experience fun. We learned a lot about dolphin behavior. The staff takes great care of them. We plan to do it again.
