Great experience during deep water swim at Dolphin Cay, Atlantis. Although pricey, it was an experience second-to-none. Just be sure to get there early as it is quite a walk through the resort grounds and you can easily get lost. The photo packages are expensive, but a great way to capture your experience and they don't allow you to bring... More

My kids loved this the most on the trip. They were out in the beautiful water with the dolphins for an hour. They got to swim and feed them. Great photos we will have forever.

This program offers kids and adults the chance to swim with the dolphins. But it actually offers much more than that the instructors take the time to educate visitors about these amazing creatures so that your experience so much more than you expected. It's expensive but well worth the money. You have to remember I'm sure it's very expensive to... More

We signed up for the early dolphin encounter. It was 25.00 so I didn't expect much. There was only spot left so I let my 10 year old daughter have the fun. I asked if they could add one more person, my 13 year old son and they said no they were not allowed. I understood but then a family... More
