This was absolutely incredible. First time I can remember where the 13 year old boy couldn't get the smile off his face, nor could we as adults. Definitely worth the extra money to go with the full swim and not just doing the encounter. I think the price difference was only 20-30 dollars per person. Trust me, spend the extra pennies for memories you will never forget.
Dolphin Swim & Encounter Rating:
The pictures and DVD are quite spendy, but can be bickered with a bit. We dropped around $200 to get all the pictures and the DVD, but we had done our ressearch and were prepared to pay this much. AT the end of the day, I don't know how you could narrow your pictures down to just a couple. The food was GREAT (they give you a lunch with the meal), and the margaritas were awesome!
If you aren't prepared for it, the aggressiveness of the vendors in the shops at the port could catch you off guard! LOL. Had a wonderful day. Only thing keeping this from being a 5+ is we all were left wishing we had more time with the dolphins.....40 minutes goes by wayyyyyy too quick!
