don't follow the directions it gives you on here you have to go into the waterpark first and follow directions from there. Trainers were amazing very knowledgeable and make an experience of a lifetime. Photo packages are expensive afterwards but worth every penny. Our Dolphin was Sol and trainers were Ash & Yassine

The experience was well organised. Photo after is really expensive. You swim in deep water, get a hug and a kiss from the dolphin. The dolphin also pushes you with its nose. That was really fun. Than you can “hold” the dolphin in the water to take a picture. Other than the activities above you can’t really touch the dolphin. I would have expected more physical contact with these lovely creatures.

This was easily one of the greatest excursions I have ever done. Playing with and hugging and being kissed by these dolphins is an unforgettable chance of a lifetime. Playful, sweet, and endearing. I will treasure this. And the trainers were so far beyond just helpful. I am not a great swimmer, but they held me up in the water so that I could still enjoy the full experience. They take care of everything and leave nothing undone.
