I sent my wife on this excursion for her birthday. I didn't see the smile leave her face after wards for days. The trainers and dolphins were such a close knit family. Would do this again in a heartbeat only this time I will be joining them.
If you have any interest in dolphins, this activity is a must! I've swam with dolphins in New Zealand, but this was a chance to really get up close and personal. The operator was extremely professional. The limited group size made this a true training experience. During the day, we were introduced to the entire operation and staff, including a session with the veterinarian to learn about the dolphin monitoring and testing to make sure they stay healthy. We prepared the fish for our dolphins, met with their trainers then spent an hour swimming with them before learning how to give commands and positive reinforcement. The day culminated with each of us four being paired with an actual training to participate in an afternoon swimming session with other guests.
