Although we only booked entry, we decided at short notice to swim with the dolphins. It was a great experience. If you can find a shortcoming, it is that some groups do more things than others, since some groups work with 1 dolphin and some with 2. But the experience is still unique

The pick-up was on time and uncomplicated. Checking in at the dolphin center also, but then it was rather weak. For 20 people there was a dolphin that you could touch, but always in turn. All actions - the dolphin came to shake its fins, could be made to sing once by turning the hand, could be kissed once and touched twice while swimming past, were photographed and the supervisor was more interested in our looks at the photographer than in the dolphin. No experience for 99€! Only two people speak English in the complex, but they only want to sell photos, price 39 euros each. My husband had to wait 30m away and wasn't allowed to take pictures. The return trip was well organized.

The experience of swimming with dolphins in the water is of course unique! With so many people swimming in a large group with only one dolphin each, you don't have much time with a dolphin yourself and it tends to feel like you're being handled. One is aware that they earn money with the photos again. But 40 dollars per picture is cheeky and with the dollar-euro exchange rate they try to cheat you. That spoiled the connection of the event a bit. Nevertheless, an absolutely special experience that you don't get anywhere else.
