Unforgettable experience, nice employees, great photo opportunities, nice to see the animals in the wild. Seasickness! But the employees did care for us.
It was a great experience. The people there are very kind and well organised. Cost $169 for swimming with the dolphins.
Well organised, saw a lot of dolphins, long time in the water, bad weather conditions.
Fabulous! 200 dolphins, a lot of interaction with them. Long time in the water so worth the money!

We did the tour at 5:30am, when the Dusky Dolphins were very lively and playful. The most enchanting thing I did in my life. The only negative is that the people in the water is too much.
