My daughter loved it!! Such a great experience for young kids, they get educated, played, touched lovely dolphins. Trainers are ex...perienced and very friendly. more

Maggie

kids totally loved it. couldn't stop talking about it after.

lnd0809

loved it. a little windy and cold. would be great if there was an outdoor shower to rinse off after for non-hotel guests

lnd0809

I've never been close to a dolphin before, so actually being able to touch one was a new experience for me (they're soft...er than I expected). The trainer that was with me was Christian, and he was exceedingly helpful and reassuring, adding various facts about dolphins and marine life throughout the encounter. Kolohe, the dolphin I met, was very friendly and well-behaved. I think this is a great experience, especially for kids or others who don't know a lot about dolphins and marine life. more
