The dolphin encounter was an amazing experience. My 10 year old daughter really enjoyed it. We are definitely going to do it again.

We did the dolphin encounter. We had to ride a shuttle from Cabo to San Jose (about 50 minutes...more like 1.5 hours after the pick up at all the hotels) to do this because the center in Cabo is under construction. I wasn't aware of this when I booked (could have been my lack of research). We had a small group (only two couples) - that made the experience even better. We paid for the dolphin encounter but since we had extra time due to the small group our instructor let us do a swim too! AMAZING! I've always wanted to do this on my honeymoon - and very glad we did!
