We did this for our kids. We were wanting them to go with more of an "encounter" type of thing where the dolphins are wild, but they wanted to play with them, so... The park overall seems over priced for what you get. It was $60/adult and I thought that was crazy when I saw everything at the park. The bird area was 'under construction' and the whole place seemed a little dirty. I wouldn't recommend this one. Choose something where the dolphins aren't captive.
This was incredibly cool. When I purchased I saw people whining about not having to pedal. Ummm that's awesome! It's absolutely gorgeous where you're riding. The van was about 30 minutes late picking us up, but John the phone contact is awesome. And Dave and Blair (who looks and sounds just like Bruce Campbell) are all great at what they do. Snorkeling with the sea turtles was great! All in all, the worst part about this one was the "so-so" ham sandwich I had for lunch, otherwise, book away.
For most of us, this will fall in the "one in a lifetime" things. You only go 3 miles out and there they are. The breed of shark you see is not necessarily one of the aggressive types (Galapagos). The hardest part is getting in/out of the cage. Once you're in the time just flies by (wish I had more time). I think at one time I counted 12+ sharks near us. And the shortest one was about 6'. The boat crew are all good fun, very knowledgeable/approachable and very safety conscious. We had one guy get sea sick. Buy the video. It's $70. But how else will you prove you actually did this.
I had no expectations for this. The food was okay. The best part of it was the games beforehand, the shopping was good and the location is gorgeous. Would I go again? Probably not. We didn't opt for the transportation option and traffic at that time of day is pretty crazy. We passed a couple of the tour buses on the way though.
