Dolphins being held captive and on strict feeding program so that can be trained. Just to entertain us. Extremely unethical - really don't recommend!

It’s been my dream to swim with dolphins and today it came true! I’m wary of spending money to see trained animals but I believe these animals could not be released back into the wild. We spent an amazing 45 minutes with our dolphin giving...More

I was a bit sceptical about going here to interact with the dolphins, but am glad I did. The dolphins are kept in tidal enclosures, most if not all of them have been rescued, about 15 in all. I was a bit disappointed that the...More

This place is horrible. The poor dolphins should be in the ocean not into an amusement park. The staff is clearly not properly trained to take good care of the dolphins. Avoid this place and if you wanna swim with big fishes, take the boat...More

I think it cost close to $100.00aud. But we did activities in the water with the dolphins, was well worth it. Had photos cuddling them, so amazing looking into their eyes.

Not to my knowledge.. hard to predict where they would be at any given time and potentially dangerous if your not an expert

You can go to Lovina beach. I am almost certain that the dolphins are free. However, I do not know if you can swim with them.
