Dolphin Cove staff were very professional and nice. It was my wife's first time swimming with dolphins and she loved it. Only the experience of 30 minutes is too short, all dolphin places should really think about adding an extra 30 minutes of free play or other activities between the dolphin and patrons. We do pay a good amount of money and only get 30 minutes. Something to truly think about and make the experience better.

Awesome experience!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

We were only able to afford to buy this tour for the whole family because of Viator's fantastic half price offer that was available for August - otherwise it would have been overpriced. Nevertheless, it was an awesome experience that none of us will ever forget. I was pleasantly surprised by the surroundings when we arrived - such a beautiful, calm little cove surrounded by lush gardens. We began with a fun little encounter with the rays, then our adventure with the dolphins began. I was really nervous about the foot push, thinking I would never be able to stay upright, but we had a good briefing, were equipped with safety jackets and the dolphins are so strong they really keep you up in place! The dorsal fin ride was fun too, and we also got to stroke the dolphins and get a kiss from them. We didn't stay for the other encounters (shark and camel). As other reviewers have mentioned, no cameras are allowed during the dolphin experience and the DVD is very expensive, but there are several packages on offer and the set up is very professional. They allow you to look through the pictures on individual computers before buying. We have some great pictures that I will treasure forever.

the tour it self was a great time and worth the money. what ruined it was a couple of the employees there working in the shark pool constantly hitting on my friend and after being turned downed completely insulted her by trying to buy sexual services from her. it was reported.
