Such an awesome experience with my 10 year old son. He was a little scared to do the rides, but, the trainer got in the water with him and helped him do it. He was so happy he did it. He wants to come back and do it again.

My husband and I planned a fun trip without the kids and this is one of the things we wanted to do. We were an hour away from the location and got half way there to get a text from them saying they cancel. When I called to find out why they just said they wouldn’t make money. Poor customer service, they could have told us sooner or been a good business and took us anyway.

We done the royal dolphin swim. It was a great experience. The staff were very professional and very serious. Wish they’d lighten up just a tad but other than that everything was great! Would recommend.
