Expensive to book through the cruise ($260); maybe you can get a better price on your own, but we only had 4 people in our group, so we got a lot of time with the dolphins. They provide life vests, masks, and water socks, and give you lots of info on their program as well as facts about dolphins. We interacted with 3 different dolphins and got to pet them, feed them, give them some basic instructions to follow, and play a little bit with them, both on a shallow platform and in deeper water. My only complaint is that for this kind of money, can't they include a photo or two? They don't let you use your own camera during the interaction, so if you want any pix of yourself, you have to pay a hefty fee. (Or you can take a screenshot of the pix online if you don't mind the banner screaming "purchase this image now!") Read Less

Excellent once we got in the water with the dolphins. Had to wait quite a while as the staff babbled about where they were from, etc. This would have been fine if it weren't scorching hot and we were wearing their lifevests by that time and standing in the hot sun. But overall, it was definitely worth it! Read Less

We did the Ultimate Adventure where our 3 kids got to get into the water with the dolphins and feed, give commands to, kiss, dance, and swim with them. The facilitator was very knowledgeable and professional and gave our kids a lot of age- appropriate information to our kids (14, 16, 16). They really enjoyed it. While pricey, it was worth it as our kids are interested in animals. Read Less

Did the 20 minute encounter. Pet, kissed, high fived a dolphin, Did it with wife and a niece 6 years old and nephew 8 years old. I was the bigger kid of them all , i LOOOOOVED it. only down fall it is a lil pricey for the time (159.00 when booked independently) still cheaper than doing the ones booked through cruise line. Good thing some of the money goes to protection and research of dolphins in the wild. Read Less

Getting to play with the dolphin's is cool at any age. You learn about them and they tale your picture with them. Good 20 minutes for the cheapest visit. Didn't get in the water with them, but got to touch kiss and feed them. So impressed by this. Think it cost $60 dollars in 2013 plus the cost of photo's another $12.95 per pix but worth it to show off to your friends and your memories. Read Less

We did this the last day in Bermuda. We did this through Dolphin Quest. If you have the extra money, DO IT. You're only there for a half hour but it does feel like longer. The trainers are great, we had Christa. We bought 3 of our pictures ($48) and don't regret it. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was my boyfriend's life goal so we were happy about that.
