I swam with my two kids with the Dolphins. They loved it and will never forget it and for that I'm grateful. I on the other hand, was sad afterwards. I have always wanted to swim with dolphins. However, I disagree with keeping them captive just for entertainment purposes. When I read that this place is about research I talked... More

I am from Czech and I was really looking... More

My wife and I did the structured swim with the dolphins and that was well worth the price...although the actual time in the water was no more than 20 minutes. We coupled that event with the sea lion experience and that one wasn't all that great. There are two sea lions and they haven't been there that long and were... More

Ed got to swim with the Dolphins. We got to see baby dolphins while there. The scenery was beautiful. The drive from Orlando was awesome. I am so glad we got this opportunity.

I was very impressed with this organization and their program . I saw children swimming with Dolphin and learning so much about this amazing creature. Keep up the good work, can't wait to go back again.

One of the best dolphin encounters that I have had. I enjoyed it so much that I have returned several times with family and friends so they could have this experience.

This park is actually a federal research site for dolphins and sea lions. As a result the "trainers" are actually highly educated and very professional. The dolphins and sea lions along with their trainers are working most of the day so there is plenty to observe for many hours. Of course, the highlight and it is worth every dollar is... More
