This place is so nice, you can spend the day. It's on a small island and they have swimming with dolphins, that was on my bucket list and was worth every penny, what an experience.

This is truly a geat adventure. You will never have such a great opportunity to get up close and personal with dolphins. The staff were extremely knowledgeable. You always felt safe and secure. It was so much fun and very educational.
