« Encuentro con delfines para el cumple »

Ha sido una experiencia muy bonita para los 15 años de mi hija, un regalito muy especial. ella ha hecho los delfines y le ha gustado tantísimo que se quedó con muchas ganas por lo que el año que viene quiere interactuar con los leones marinos. El precio pagado ha sido bastante caro (100 euros), pero por suerte los leones marinos "solo" cuestan 50.. (Posted on Oct 30, 2018)

« A dream »

I always wanted to swim with dolphins. So on the internet I found this offer and booked for me and my son. The tickets had to be booked additionally. The prize is proud but the activity was absolutely worth it and a long-awaited dream came true. It was also great that there was so much information about the animals. Unfortunately the time was over too fast.

« Ein Traum »

Mit Delfinen schwimmen wollte ich immer schon mal. Im Internet fand ich also dieses Angebot und buchte für mich und meinen Sohn. Die Tickets mussten zusätzlich gebucht werden. Der Preis ist stolz aber die Aktivität war es absolut wert und ein lang ersehnter Traum ging in Erfüllung. Toll war es auch dass es so viele Informationen zu den Tieren gab. Leider ging die Zeit zu schnell um.

« The BEST experience of my life! »

My boyfriend and I went on the sea lion encounter together as we felt it looked the best out of the two animal encounters. We were in the pool for about 20-30 minutes, which sadly went too quick! We met two of the sealions and they were so beautiful, and fun. Throughout the encounter, we got to learn a little about the animals and got to stroke them. We were able to swim breifly with them and we got kisses from the cuties!!!! This was the highlight and both the trainer and activity leader were really friendly. The pool wasn't deep, although you stay on the shallowest part for the majority of the activity. Our group was only us and another couple, which meant we got a lot of time interacting with the sealions. We both received an individual photograph with one of the sealions, which were great quality. my boyfriend and I paid the 20 euros to get a disk with all the photographs on. This is worth every penny!! There were good quality and over a 100 photographs on the disk.

I would recommend the sealion encounter to anybody because it was genuinely the most excited and wonderful experience I have ever had!

« Respectful to the animals »

We were unsure of if you swim with dolphins or not, but we called the team and they explained the tour to us. We were a bit unsure at first but when we thought about it we realised it’d be more respectful. We went for it and we all loved it. (Posted on Jan 15, 2018)

« Special »

My girlfriend loves dolphins and she doesn’t like zoos but what she (and I) really liked is that we didn’t feel like we’d encroached on their space. We had a lovely time with the stunning animals. (Posted on Jan 15, 2018)

« We had the time of our lives »

I took my Mum along for the dolphin counter and she was smiling from ear to ear. We are animal lovers and we loved the fact that we were able to get close to the dolphins without feeling guilty about it. We felt we had been respectful to the animals and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we had with them. (Posted on Jan 10, 2018)

« My daughter was delighted »

My daughter is afraid of water and she isn’t the world’s best swimmer, but she is obsessed with dolphins; the dolphin encounter was ideal for her. I had fun too. (Posted on Jan 10, 2018)

« The sea lions had some serious character »

I swam with dolphins a few years back in Florida and I was keener on checking out the sealions and they were excellent. My family and I had a brilliant day together with the sealions and my sons were full of smiles all day long. (Posted on Jan 10, 2018)

« Delfine im Rancho Texas »

Es ist kein Schwimmen, jedoch trotzdem ein schönes Erlebnis, an Delfine so nah zu kommen. Die Tiere sehen zufrieden aus, das ist uns auch sehr wichtig. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis geht..
