This was just a dream come true.......for sooo many years i dreamt of swimming with these wonderfull mammals. The staff were helpfull and friendly and the location was really good - especially for the dolphins. Once in the water i was in my glory - the dolphins are such characters and funny as well. I would do it again in a minute - just to be able to be a part of their space - even for such a short time was wonderfull.
It was one of the best experiences I ever had! I hope to do it again someday. The dolphins are amazing and I met wonderful people. Unfortunately, the cd I purchased of my photos was damaged and I hope to purchase another. Do you know if that's possible and if so, who would I contact? I will be very sad if I cannot get another copy. Please advise. Thank you, Karen Richel
We had a lot of interaction with the dolphins and it was so much fun! I highly recommend it!
The experience of swimming with the dolphins was absolutely fantastic. Having watched the other activities available which looked great I think it was well worth paying the extra money to have the Royal Dolphin Swim programme as the groups are smaller, you have more personal time with the dolphins and the programme has greater content. I will add however that the photographs and DVD's produced on site by the centre staff, whilst professional in quality are highly priced and a 'rip off' in my opinion. I think the centre would sell more of these if they were more sensibly priced.....Steve and Lynne Palmerini.
We really loved it, and anytime we are back in Tortola we will do it again.
An experience I would not have missed for the world. Fantastic!!! I would do it again and again. If anyone has not done it, swim with dolphins, fantastic!!!
Wonderful experience. Staff is excellent and helpful. I want to do it again asap.
The online booking was easy, but the experience was fantastic. Great facilities, with good natured staff who helped on the day. Great day out. Could have had longer in the water with the dolphins
amazing experience swimming with dolphins, but i thought that paying $80 for the photos was a bit over the top, if you want only 1 photo its $25, but it was a wonderful experience.
When arrived at the venue the sales office had no record of the booking..! fortunately i had all the booking paperwork with me and there was a vacancy at the requested time slot....!
The actual dolphin encounter was very enjoyable; it is incredible how astute the creatures are, and how obedient they are towards the trainers.
The venue is probably the nearest one can get to being in natural surroundings with the dolphins, as they are in a manufactured lagoon where the waves can move through the fencing.
a) the relentless emphasis on taking photos/videos whether you wanted them or not
b) the lack of customer attention and facilities with regard to changing.
However, don't let this put you off - it was a marvelous experience!
