We had such a blast! Swimming with the dolphins was the highlight of our trip. We really got to interact with the dolphins. Not only did we get to swim with these beautiful creatures we hugged them, kissed them and played with them. The whole park was incredible! We had such an enjoyable time throughout the whole day. They had so many things to explore there. It truly was an experience of a lifetime. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, it made our trip one to remember.
