Ed Sweeney, Gilbert,
AZ (Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Trip)
"This was a very hands on
experience for our encounters with both the sea lons and the
swim with dolphins Punta Cana. There is no intimidation, the aminals come right up
to you as you interact with them. There are trainers right
near you so you never have to worry about anything with the
animals. You are in the water for a good amount of
time and the animals swim around you, kiss you and let
you touch them. The dolphins will do a few tricks and the sea
lions will show their behavior similiar to Sea World. I highly
recommend this for young and old folk alike "
B.C., Taylors, South
Carolina (Upper Keys Trip)
"The full-day workshop at DolphinWorld/Keys Adventure
Tours is a memory we will share for a lifetime. Swimming with
Dolphins Key Largo area is something that is so enjoyable it is hard to describe--it
must be experienced. We are animal lovers and the fact that
many of the animals in these programs have been rescued and
rehabilitated is very reassuring. The animals receive the
utmost care and attention! The staff was very professional
and the facilities were very clean. We will definitely return
on our next Keys Trip."
Tyler Smith, Centennial,
CO (Puerta Plata, DR Trip)
"This was one of the best vacations I have ever been
on, and that is no exaseration. We swam with dolphins Puerto Plata and
played with sea lions, saw tigers, sting rays, had birds hangin'
all over us in the aviary, and a ton more. It was just some
really good times and once in a life time experiences. Thank
you very much!"
Tom Marcello, Barrington,
RI (Miami Trip)
"I must say that my swim with the dolphins Miami was most exciting.
And that is an understatement. Those loving and trusting creatures
had such an air of peace about them which manifested itself
in me. I must tell you that upon the conclusion of my hour
and half adventure with them, I felt as if I had been with
God. It is no wonder those creatures have saved so many lives
and helped mankind...God truly works through them. I would
recommend a swim with the dolphins with strongly, indeed I
could exhaust my capacity for superlatives in describing my
swim with the dolphins."
Kim Moravec, Henderson,
CO (Cancun, MX Trip)
"I usually don't go in the water or swim with my kids.
I booked them to swim with dolphin Cancun and then my 50 year old sister in law
said she wanted to do it too, if I would. I agreed with much
hesitation. The ride over to Mujeres Island was a great time
with an animated crew who were a lot of fun. Once we arrived,
the professionalism abounded and we were all greeted, informed
and headed off to our various activities. My sister-in-law
and myself felt we were the oldest of the crew swimming. OMG,
the water was cold, but only for a little while.Then the excitement
of the dolphins took over. We got to pet them, hug them, talk
to them and they got to play with us. I honestly felt so close
to the dolphins by the time we were done. They were soooo
sweet. Being pushed up out of the water and pulled through
the water by them is an experience that can't possibly be
compared to anything else. It was awesome. As a close to the
day, the ride back to Cancun exceeded the ride there for fun
and entertainment by the crew. It was the best day of our

"I turned 40 this year and decided that I wanted to do
something special. I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins
and there was no question that was what I would do. So on
November 2 my birthday wish came true. The weather was terrible
but that did not make the experience any less amazing. We
went snorkeling in a thunderstorm and swam with the dolphins
in the rain. Our snorkeling experience was wonderful. The
captain and his mate were fun and friendly and made the trip
worthwhile. The rain in the afternoon was a blessing. It allowed
the three of us to have the dolphins all to ourselves. So
there we were, three giggling women having the experience
of a lifetime. As we were the only ones in the swim we got
extra time with the dolphins and it was so special. Thank
you for helping make my 40th birthday something I will never
Jodi Pierce, Summerfield,
NC (Nassau, Bahamas Trip)
"This is an experience that I had wanted to do since
childhood and just never had the opportunity to do it. When
I realized that you had a swim with the dolphins in Nassau I knew that
not only could I fulfill a childhood dream, but my daughters
could also. My youngest daughter has always talked of wanting
to be a dolphin or whale trainer when she gets older, so this
was a great opportunity for her. I'm not really sure who enjoyed
the experience more, myself or my daughters. The entire time
that we were there they kept thanking me and telling me how
awesome it was. A month later now, they are still talking
about what a great time they had and can we please do it again."
Marie Nadza, Hagan, Norway (Upper Keys Trip)
"Our family had an unforgettable day of fun, excitement
and wonder at Dolphin World. It was an experience we'll remember
with joy for a long time."
Kristina Petrilak, Mt.
Vernon, NY (Puerta Plata, DR Trip)
"We had a phenomenal time at Oceanworld. It is a once
ina lifetime expereince to come into such close contact with
all of these beautiful creatures. We had a great time. Thanks
again. P.S. your staff is hilarious."
Nonda Zwald, Tillamonk,
OR (Miami Trip)
"Thank you so much for making Carly's 10th year such
a great experience. It had been something that I had promised
her several years ago that we would do, and your company made
it so easy. We look forward to making it happen again sometime."
Paul Daniel, Stoke-on-Trent,
U.K. (Upper Keys Trip)
"If you want to truly experience a memorable dolphin
encounter then this is the one to choose. You have a very
good amount of time with your dolphins and have the opportunity
to observe and participate in several behaviours. Coupled
with the shows on offer and the pleasant surroundings it is
good value for money and we have no hesitation in recommending
Tracy Toal, Airdrie, Scotland (Miami Trip)
"What a fantastic experience from start to finish. Booking
was easy and the experience itself was great from snorkelling
in the morning (especially having a shark swim past) to going
to all the different attractions that Theatre of the sea but
the icing on an already perfect cake was the dolphin swim
- the trainers were fantastic especially with someone like
me who is not 100% comfortable in water. All in all a
great service by all and a thanks to Dolphin World who helped
make the experience happen and answered all of my many and
G.F., Andover, U.K. (Miami Trip)
"The experience more than met our expectations. All of
the staff were friendly, informal and a pleasure to meet.
The Dolphins and trainers were fantastic: the look on our
son's face throughout the encounter was a mixture of wonderment
and unbridled joy. It really made the holiday"
John Templeton, Greer,
SC (Nassau, Bahamas Trip)
"The Dolphin experience was truly a great experience
for us and our child. It was long enough to be a 'grand' experience
that you want to do again and did not feel rushed. The people
who work there enjoy their jobs and the Dolphins are also
happy. Just a great experience to see Dolphins that are happy
and well cared for and allow us to be part of their day."
Barbara Lizotte, Lehighton,
PA (Miami Trip)
"The WORKSHOP was top-notch! My husband, daughter, and
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the experience. I was
apprehensive at first because of my daughter's young age and
swimming experience. The folks that taught us beforehand and
prepared us for the time in the water, were friendly, courteous,
extremely helpful, and very enthusiastic. It was obvious that
they cared deeply for the animals, and wanted to make it safe
for both us and them. The photographer was really good! -
seemed like everybody wanted to buy the pictures afterwards."
Tristan Hallam, Belton,
MA (Miami Trip)
"The dolphin encounter was absolutely great! We had an
awesome experience and I would recommend this to everyone!
We loved it!!"
Linda Evans, Neshanic
Station, NJ (Upper Keys Trip)
"I had heard about opportunities to swim with dolphins
a few years ago and immediately thought my son would just
love to do that but I was not sure if it was a realistic goal
for average people or if it was an opportunity available only
to the "rich and famous" so to speak. When I was
looking for a vacation for the two of us this summer, I remembered
and out of curiosity,started researching possible places to
do so and to be able to combine other interesting activities
into a week vacation. Dolphin World provided exactly that,
and made it very attainable for the "average" family.
More than just a "swimming with dolphins" experience,
but also snorkeling, and an eco-tour, in a two-day program,
with the availability to book a hotel and car for a longer
visit so we also had three days on our own to see and do other
things in the area. I also liked the flexibility of the Dolphin
World workshops to choose a 1 - 4 day program, which I did
not find anywhere else. I decided to join my 11-year-old son
since it would be more fun to do it together. I'm glad I did
because it was truly an experience of a lifetime to interact
with these beautiful and majestic animals in their environment.
My son enjoyed every second of it. Neither of us will ever
forget our experience.."
Kay Lasiter, Boynton
Beach, FL (Upper Keys Trip)
"This trip was everything I had read about in previous
testimonials and more. I know why people keep coming back
as it was just fabulous. The Sheraton Beach resort was incredible
too. My sister has been to Mykonos, Greece to snorkel and
she said the resort was as nice if not nicer than the 7 star
resort there and the experience with the dolphins and snorkeling
was even better. Wish I had more time to swim with the rays
and especially the sea lions! We are definitely planning to
come back soon.."
George R. A. Doumar,
"Thanks again. Everything went great, I thought the timing of activities
was good, and we really enjoyed the snorkeling and the dolphin swim and shows."
Debora & Brian Fitzgerald,
Virginia Beach, VA
"Seeing my wonderful husband having fun swimming and frolicking with those
beautiful creatures, he got to swim with Scottie and the other dolphins and interact
with one of our favorite marine life mammals. Thank you from the bottom of our
hearts for making one of Brian,s dreams come true."
Kimberly Farmer & Brian
Schultz, Farmington Hills, MI
"We took your dolphin program in Cancun last month.
We had a wonderful time--your staff was extremely helpful, gracious, fun, and
polite! We couldn't have asked for a better time! We were very well taken care
of and had a beautiful time. I definitely recommend the trip, and look forward
to our next visit! Thanks again to you and your staff for your gracious hospitality."

and had such a great time I came back for a visit in December.
I will be back again next year ...and the next..."
Barry Hammond, England
"This experience was booked
for my wife's 50 birthday. its always a worry that things wont
go to plan on such a big occasion. also booking from the UK
via the internet. but I should not have worried. every aspect of
the service was second to none. The whole program from start
to finish was a great success. not only thanks to Dolphin World
/ Keys Adventure Tours, but to every body that was involved."
Andrew & Erica Boyarsky, Oregon
"We went to Florida for a fun, relaxing time, and we discovered the dolphin
experience through some travel magazines. We were a little worried about the
cost, but what we received was an experience of a lifetime. It was a chance to
interact and see some wonderful animals up close. Thank you so much for an adventure
Jill Z. Bixby, Maine
"It was a birthday present for my 17year old daughter who I thought might
be too old for this experience but after speaking with the staff, asking questions
and having a frank and honest conversation, it turned out to be the most special
gift I could have given. The smaller group activities that we participated in
were most enjoyed plus we had enough down time to venture on our own and see
other sites. Coming from Maine, our trip to the Florida Keyes, in August, was
very well organized and I thank Dolphin World / Keys Adventure for this."

Our Dolphin swim was a once in a lifetime experience
Audrey Iracane - Fredericksburg, VA
recently divorced with my 11 year old son living with me. I was
looking for something that we both
could do and enjoy together. This was a time when I just needed
to get away. I was able to relax while also enjoy my adventures
with the dolphins, sealions, and the stingrays on two separate
days. Our morning of snorkeling was something my son experienced
for the first time and loved and still gave us time to relax afterwards.
The personnel at your office and also at the dolphin facility were
always very friendly very informative and made this whole vacation
something that my son and I needed. It was an enjoyable week
and one that i will definetely do again at another time possibly
daughters. Thank you all for a wonderful time.
Stephen Gardner - WEST YORKS,
I rate the whole experience at level 4 out of 5. The dolphin
experience was fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone.
Greg Boughey - Madison,
My expierence with the
dolphins was amazing. Throughout the interaction, I got
to swim with them as well as teach them some new tricks. I throughly enjoyed my expierence and hope to return next year.
Tim Partington - Staffordshire, England
Your instructions were very clear and easy
to use and got us there no bother at all,
the whole day turned out to be fantastic and im so glad that
we booked in advance because we found out
that only six people a day are allowed in with the
dolphins, there was plenty of time for lunch and travelling the
short distance between the parks, on behalf
of my family and me i would like to thank you again and
iv'e no doubt we will see you again next year, Best Regards Tim
Paul Flinton - Yorkshire,
This workshop provided
a personal experience for our two children aged 11 and 14. The
group size provided individual attention. We had originally hoped
to book Discovery Cove in Orlando but this suited our expectations
much better. The
experience was far removed from the 'Zoo type' swim with
dolphins which get
such a bad press. Good value for money which after a week in Orlando

My brother is living in Germany and
had planned to come for Christmas 2003 to Florida. What
a surprise for him, that we had booked the swimming with the
dolphins. The rest of the family (from 12 years old to 80 years
old - 6
people) went with him as watchers. We all had a wonderful day.
Everything was well organized and went smooth. We learned all something
dolphins and other animals at the Dolphin Facility. My brother

enjoyed the follwing snorkel trip. I already recommended a day
like this to
my friends and aquaintences.
