  • My family had an awesome experience at Dolphin connection yesterday. We did the "royal swim" as a birthday gift for me and it was worth every penny. The deep water swims were definitely super fun. My daughter is 6 and she was able to do all the deep water activities and loved it. She's also a very confident swimmer so that helped plus everyone is in a life vest. Highly recommended bucket list experience.
  • The dolphin experience was unique. The trainers are great, the staff is great. The dolphins were just great! I only deducted one star because my wife had on a pin hole nose ring and that wasn't pointed out to us until we were literally leaving to start the dolphin experience. The photographer, following her protocols, said she couldn't allow us further without the nose ring removed. We had already been through at least two check points, where they check us for anything we're not suppose to have and nobody said anything about the nose ring. But, my wife has never taken out her nose ring and didn't know how. She started freaking out, because they had locked us in, and she couldn't remove it and we were going to miss the adventure. That seriously put a dent in our experience for a minute, until the manager walks up and just told us it was ok and we were all set. but, man, you spend $500 for 2 people and to have a last minute frazzle like that, wasn't cool. So, just make sure you have all your jewelry off before you do this. It's worth it and I'd recommend it to anyone. The price is a bit of a lip bite but its worth every cent and you'll probably regret missing the experience over biting the bullet and just paying the steep price, at least, we did. Worth it.
