This was a once in a lifetime experience. Upon arrival, the service was wonderful. We were advised as to what the experience was going to include, given life jackets and off we went! We were in a group of 6 and had one guide. He was very informative and educated us on the dolphins, their habits, and was wonderful with "Nacho", our dolphin. We all got to feed the dolphin, watch him play and was kissed by him! The best part was actually getting to ride with the dolphin. You hold on to his fins and take a ride around the dolphin pool. You don't realize how fast they can go! It was truly amazing. We were in the water with the dolphins for about 45 minutes, much longer than any of us expected. This was an incredible experience and one that you MUST do! Highly recommended to all.
Lots of fun, staff was really nice! Pictures though are way too expensive, $25 per picture or 8 for $100! Not worth the purchase, just have someone take pictures with a good lens from the observation decks.
We purchased this excursion for our daughters (16 and 13 yrs) on a recent trip to Nuevo Vallarta. They enjoyed it tremendously! The staff was friendly and accommodated us even though we were a few minutes late, which was very nice of them. I only wish that the viewing area for spectators was closer to the pool area where the dolphins were so we could see our kids better. The pictures and DVD are pricey - almost $200! But since this was a once in a lifetime experience, we purchased both. I think the price for those things should be cheaper. Other than that, the kids had a great time.
