My two daughters ages 11 and 8 and I had a WONDERFUL time. The dolphin swim was one of the most special memories from our cruise. We made lots of new friends in Cozumel and even got a pretty good deal on the photos from the Dolphin Discovery guys.. shhh! : I highly recommend it for families and couples alike!

Our group of 3 was the last of the day and we not only enjoyed the dolphins, especially pushing us up to sail across the water standing up, but we also enjoyed feeding the manatees. Trainers were very patient, and this tour was the highlight of our trip.

There was only four of us in the group and that made it so nice because we each got to spend more time with the Dolphins.

Absolutely amazing! Small groups which allowed for a more personal experience. My 10 year old son just loved this. We live in Florida on the beach so we see dolphins and manatees frequently and even with this this trip was 5 star for sure. When we got there they asked us if we wanted to swim with manatees for 30 each. We did, that was incredible too. The trainers and group size make this a fabulous excursion. The only downside is the picture herding into the building afterwards. Pictures are 40 a piece or you can buy CD's with all pics. WORK with them on pricing with the CD's. I spent more on the pics than the excursion, but the excursion was so reasonable I felt good with the overall money put out for the day. Will do this again!
