The instructions and directions on how to get there or what time to be there was a little confusing. The details said be at the ferry 30 mins before it leaves at 8:30am. It says the ferry will bring everyone back at 5 or 5:30 pm I can't remember. So you will be on at the island at the dolphin discovery from 8:30am-5pm. That's a long time so I kept thinking that can't be right. I also read in the details to arrive 30 mins before your set time which is the time you pick. I picked 1pm so I said maybe they mean meet at the ferry at 12:30pm so I can't at 12pm just be sure and to be early incase something goes wrong. Now that sounded more better. So the directions to the ferry weren't bad I made it straight there with no problems. The lot was full so of course I pay $10 and start walking towards a tour person that I found he said the ferry has been gone it indeed leaves at 830am. So now I'm mad and confused. He says this happens alot when buying through 3rd party he says alot of ppl are lost

We enjoyed this activity. The dolphin trainer was very detailed on instructions, made everyone with comfortable and had a great sense of humor. The receptionist Nayeli with the braces did not make us feel welcomed. Her attitude was unprofessional as if she was bothered. Armando was cool. From the beginning to the end. He helped us find the souvenirs we needed and had a great attitude.

This was the highlight of our Cancun trip! The trainers were amazing and getting to swim with dolphins was something I’ve always wanted to do! While the photos and videos were a bit spendy- you absolutely have to buy them! They are high quality and you’ll have lasting memories of the whole experience! Also the all you can eat buffet and open bar and shopping time downtown made it a complete experience. I highly recommend this excursion!!
