Amazing dolphin experience. Brilliantly trained Handlers were true lovers of their dolphins and everyone at the center were truly caring for the dolphin and lovely to us.

It certainly is a magical experience swimming with the dolphins, absolutely loved it. Didn't love the cost of the photo/video packages on offer, very expensive, it's acceptable that the experience is expensive, but come on the photos in this digital age!

We had a great time with the Dolphins. It really is a lifetime experience and enjoyed every minute of it. The center is good and the people there make you feel very welcome. Just the price is very expensive.

One thing to say: Do NOT keep dolphins captivated. They suffer terribly, and the sight is so sad. There is no excuse for this. The pools are so small. I cant stop feeling sorry for the poor animals.

I cannot answer that question. Our daughter was too young for that experience. However, I would recommend giving them a call. They are very friendly and speak both French and English.
