I the dolphin swim there last year with my kids (9 & 11 at the time) and we had a great time. Although it was expensive it was worth every penny. I was the highlight of our cruise. Kids are still talking about it and watching the video a year later. We were actually in the pool with the dolphins. We saw people doing the encounter. They were in a shallow pool (approx 2-3' deep) and got to touch and kiss the dolphin. We had a lot more interaction. If you are going with kids, depending on the child, you may want to evaluate how your child is with something like this. There were several young children at the encounter who were scared and crying and one child in our group, who was about 7, wouldn't get into the pool. She was very nervous about the whole thing and just sat on the edge of the dock. Hope this helps.
