A truly memorable experience and excellent value for money - book online directly for good deals! We had the Royal Swim and experienced Dolphins, Sea Lion and Manatees - all special in their own way! The package also included lunch and trip out on a catamaran!

Very cool experience! Highly recommend getting picture and most expensive package. Got to pet and ride dolphins, take pictures with Sea Lions, and feed Manatees! The last part of the trip included a boat ride to CRYSTAL CLEAR waters to snorkel and drink cocktails. Very neat experience!!!

We enjoyed our excursion with our kids (3&5) they did the interaction. The only bad thing is the cost of the pictures when you're done with your fun experience they charge $20 a picture which I felt was outrageous however we bought.
