Such a lovely experience, photos are a bit pricey but also so worth it. We got some amazing photos, our member of staff was lovely and helpful throughout, it seems they all love their job which is nice and welcoming. I shouldn’t have told them it was my birthday as the dolphin splashed me as a present at the end.

Really worth the money.. We got one on one interaction with dolphins and the staffs are very polite and friendly. We got wet suits and dry towels plus lockers to store our belongings. Overall the experience was really unforgettable. The picture packages could have been priced slightly better. That is very expensive.

We took the 1st option with our 2 daughters aged 6 and 8. Very expensive activity but the girls loved being able to touch the dolphins. They had feet and us below the waist. Despite the price, it was a great time. On the other hand, each souvenir photo is 30 euros more. Changing rooms on site to leave your belongings before meeting the dolphins. Good memory despite the very expensive price.
