Swam with the dolphins today, which was amazing. But I accidentally dropped my underwater camera during the excursion, which I didn't know was prohibited because NOBODY told me. The "instructor" harshly criticized me for "disrespecting him", although he never mentioned anything about cameras prior to the "encounter". Fortunately, the dolphin trainer was much kinder and retrieved it for me about... More

We had a nice dolphin experience. I have always been leery of these places because I feel badly that the dolphins are confined. I expected a more open lagoon and natural setting. The Dolphinaris is on the shore, but the dolphin areas are large cement pools with shallow areas for patrons to stand. The dolphins appeared happy and cared for.... More

I took my first time cruising friend with me. She was thrilled with the experience, as was I. We were given a chance to actually interact with the well trained and gentle animals. The belly ride was the highlight. We had a full 40 minutes with the dolphins and the very informative trainer/handler. The food was fine. I would highly... More

It, s a pity for dolphins! They turn and turn around in a so small swimming pool. They are trained, of sure to come and go. And the tourist has to make the exact gesture, and the dolphin arrives. And the poor tourist think perhaps, it's natural...but it's ridiculous and poignant. And, the space where dolphins come and go is... More

We did this excursion on a cruise in November. There was my two kids (ages 17 and 15) and myself. Amazing experience for all three of us. I definitely recommend this as an excursion. They pick you up and transport you to the facility, we had an amazing experience where each of us had one to one with the dolphin... More

We did the Dolphinaris Dolphin Ride Experience last month while on a Cozumel cruise stop. It was a thrill I will never forget. The facility is very nice and right on the ocean. There are various pools with different dolphins and groups, but so very well organized. You can tell that the dolphins are very well cared for. We were... More

I did not get in the water with the dolphins but my family did, and they all had a ball and will never forget it. They were able to take pictures getting a kiss from the Dolphins. So this is excellent for the family

Great experience with teens. The photos were expensive but the experience was amazing. Dolphins were such neat creatures and I couldn't believe the level of interaction we could have with them. Will do it again on the next cruise to Cozumel
