What people are saying about St. Augustine

I went with my 14 year old grandson and we had an amazing experience swimming with the dolphins. It has always been a dream of mine and it lived up to all of my expectations. It was well worth the price. Everything is well run and the trainers are fantastic! Give yourself and your family this special treat.

Excellent. It was well worth it, my kids (and husband, have not stop talking about it) I highly recommend it!!!

So much fun. Wish group was smaller for more interaction with the dolphins. Good experience.

I liked the photos the guide showed us of real ghosts.

We had such a great time! Our guides were awesome!
