This is something I've wanted to do my whole life. I love dolphins. I do not think we had enough hands on for the price though. We were in the water, but we were mostly just spectators. We were able to do 3 poses each for pictures and then my family was able to pet the dolphin for a moment for a picture and that was it.

The experience was very interactive and the kids enjoyed it.
