Perfect boat, low deck so you could be as close with the dolphins! We had a group of 60 dolphins which was of course great. We could not swim with the, because of young baby dolphins. (we got our money, an extra fee back).

Watched a few dolphins from a distance, as they were feeding we couldn't swim with them, then tried looking for whales instead. Saw a couple of spouts, but ran out of time to get close. At least the staff put in some effort to make our day interesting when we couldn't swim.

We paid $100 to swim with Dolphins and only ended up seeing them briefly. We got no money back and could have gone on a dolphin watching tour for half the price.
