The facility at gulf world was very nice and the staff was very knowledgable and friendly. However, it is far from affordable and accommodating for families. The price to swim with the Dolphins for my 9 year old daughter was $119 and that is for approx 20 min of shared time with 10 other people. The whole program is geared towards photo opportunities for the photo staff. They make it impossible for a parent/observer to take a good photo. Each person in the water does poses with the dolphin, but you can't capture it yourself. After spending that outrageous amount we were so excited to see the photos all to find out that the price for a printed photo is $25!!! Or get this... They will put them all on a cd for me for over $50. Each and every area in the Gulf World facility was that way. They will take your photo with an animal if you buy a ticket for $10 and and up!!! So if you plan to visit don't think after purchasing your admission you are set. Be prepared to fork out way more than you should!

Everything was better than anticipated! My daughter and her friend participated in a Royal Swim with the dolphins. The trainers were very knowledgeable and patient. We can't wait to go back again next year!

My family of five did the Swim Adventure. It exceeded our expectations, young or old ages. Pictures were fantastic. I had to buy the cd to save these memories for years to come.
