Overall rating: (2 Reviews)

The Dolphin Encounter was very fun and enjoyable. If I had a negative it would be that I would have liked to buy the VIP package up front instead of upgrading there. Score: Recommended: YES from Kansas City, KS
The dolphin experience is good. If I had known prior I would have upgraded to any of the other adventures. The dolphin encounter only offers limited interaction. We did the snorkeling trip and the kids loved it. They had the most fun with it. Score: Recommended: YES from Mayaguez, Puerto Rico
