Transportation was on time. The dolphin encounter was fun and something the entire family could enjoy. My mom was told she could have her phone on her since she paid to watch and not participate but when she tried to record a short video of me with the dolphin the staff told her she couldn’t. The photo packages are a bit expensive and we still planned to purchase photos I was under the impression she could record but in actuality could not. Overall it was still a great experience to mark off the bucket list.

Wir haben zwar nur den Eintritt gebucht, uns aber dann kurzfristig entschieden doch mit den Delphinen zu schwimmen. Es war ein tolles Erlebnis. Wenn man ein Manko finden kann, dann das in manchen Gruppen mehr Sachen gemacht werden als mit anderen, da manche Gruppen mit 1 Delphin arbeiten und manche mit 2. Aber das Erlebnis ist dennoch Einzigartig

Die Abholung hat pünktlich und unkompliziert geklappt. Das Einchecken im Delphincenter auch, aber dann war es eher schwach. Für 20Personen gab es einen Delfin, den man zwar berühren konnte, aber halt immer der Reihe nach. Alle Aktionen - der Delfin kam kurz Flosse schütteln, konnte einmal per Handdrehung zum Singen gebracht werden, konnte einmal geküsst werden und zweimal beim Vorbeischwimmen berührt werden,wurden fotografiert und die Betreuerin war mehr an unseren Blicken zum Fotografen interessiert, als am Delfin. Für 99€ kein Erlebnis! In der Anlage wird nur von zwei Leuten Englisch gesprochen, aber auch die wollen nur Fotos-Stückpreis 39€-verkaufen. Mein Mann musste 30m entfernt warten und durfte nicht fotografieren. Die Rückfahrt war gut organisiert.
