I highly recommend taking this tour! I loved it and my dolphin trainer Yvon was excellent. We had two dolphins for our pleasure to do tricks and then do the heel push and the dorsal fin tow. Wow, it was amazing. We had a nice lunch buffet, too and the little town was fun to see and we rented golf carts there. I would do it again!

AMAZING! i booked the Dolphine Royal Swim for myself and my mother as its her dream. Then on arrival she paid for us to upgrade to include the sealion and manatee swim. its amazing! the photos you receive are great, the dolphins lifted me right out of the water. You get lots of information and the staff are friendly. there is a VIP open bar, restaurants and pool. there are a number of other pools, hammocks, snorkelling and sun loungers for people. It is a beautiful little island and we loved spending the whole day there.

Just great :
If your mate comes along and does not want to swim as well, he can buy a VIP ticket for 22USD in order to access the VIP area and the all you can eat buffet

Would so recommend it! Dolphins are such an amazing part of this world, and they're the sweetest! Loved it so much and would do it again.

Queue was huge in aquatours get there early! Ferry was good (45 mins) and you get lockers when you get there. We had access to free food and drinks - waiters are very attentive and nice. Dolphin experience was amazing! Pictures are pricey so do your research before you go for the best deal.

The tour was awesome. I swam with dolphins before and thought it was fun but this tour was amazing. I would defiantly recommend it. The sea lion and Manatees were also fun. We had such a great experience.

Excellent. Lots of time in the water with the Dolphins. Great experience. Better to take the earliest time so is not too hot and dolphins are not too tired
