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

The absolute best thing we did on our vacation. I loved every minute of it. The skipped the stingray portion as it would have meant spending an additional two hours for a 15-minute session and it was way too hot that day. It was an experience of a lifetime that the professional photographers captured beautifully; the extra money for the photos and photobook are well worth the money. I can't say enough good things about it.

It was an extremely nice adventure ... we enjoyed it alot ..AMAZING!

few things just to mention them (It would have made Our experience much more amazing..!! :)

- round trip transport is not included and IMP you have to call them.. Before!.
- they also have the royal garrafon tour. (others that went had a wonderfull experience there) but we didnt know until we were on the island ... too late!! you might want to check before you leave the island..
- IT IS a WHOLE day tour ... do not expect to go back to hotel before 7pm- 8pm becuase the land transport is only available at 6pm!! there is transport from the island to mainland by boat at 3pm but you end up waiting for the shared van which is available at 6pm!! (they do it on purpose so that you stay on the island and buy more tours!!)

The rest was simply Great .. the 1 hour with the dolphins was unforgettable !!

Great, amazing experience. My only comment would be to include the cost of the ferry in the overall cost of the experience for ease of use. Also I would have English dedicated, which all the switching between languages it ias hard sometimes to understand.

This was an amazing experience! The staff was wonderful. It was easy to get to the ferry by local bus. You spend a good amount of time w/ the dolphins. I have booked several tours through Viator they have all been great!

If you like dolphins, this is an AMAZING experience. In just a short period of time, the trainers train you how to interact with the dolphins, including kisses, hugs, handshakes, dorsal tow, and nose push two dolphins pushing you by the feet as you stand above the water. This is worth every penny.

A must do for anyone, especially for kids or teens. My two teens loved it! The photos and video were a bit pricey, but were very high quality. Would definitely do again.

I wish there had been more one-on-one time with the dolphins, but overall I was very happy with my experience. It was something I had always wanted to do, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

The best experience in Isla Mujeres is by far swimming with the Dolphins! The buffe is very good, swimming with the sharks isnt really special as they are shy and stay at the bottom making very difficult for us to actually see them! I went on the boat included on the tour to the centre of the Island after my swim. You have 1 hr to rent a golf car to get around the Island which, I did but didnt think anything special to see. If staying in the centre all you have is again the usual souveniers shops! Swimming with the Dolphin was trully worth the trip there! They are gentle and strong! Any concerns I had about them living in an enclosed area and being trained for our entertainement were dissipated when I saw how Carlos our Dolphin trainer loved, cared and respected them! I will never forget being kissed, pushed, launched in the air and such close encouter with these amazing creatures!
