My granddaughter is 4 and was extremely excited to rub the dolphin(Kelly) and even got to give it a fish! My daughter and I were also thrilled with the experience and the instructor was fantastic.

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. Our dolphin handler was both knowledgeable and entertaining. The setting is beautiful and the dolphins seem genuinely happy with their surroundings. The only thing I would point out is that there was no time whatsoever to use the water park. The dolphins alone took up our whole shore time.
We had a blast! This was one of our favorite excursions to date. The trainers were entertaining and their love for the dolphins was obvious. We loved having the opportunity to play with the dolphins. The photos were expensive but very good and worth paying for.
