Default PV Dolphin Encounter

Hi...Has anyone taken the Dolphin Encounter in Puerto Vallarta??? Did you do it privately or with the ship.....How far is it from the pier.....
We are traveling on Celebrity at New Year's with my mother who is 80...She is very spry..and I was wondering if getting in and out of the water would be difficult for her. I thought if we did the Encounter rather than the Swim it might be easier for her???? She could get in and out with stairs...but if you had to use steps (like on the side of a ship) it would be too difficult for her. Anyone have any experience here? Thanks so much

Only thing I can add is that it sold out on the times we've been on Mex. Riviera, so I would book early.

I did the dolphin encounter in P.V., and had such a wonderful experience. I just looked at my pictures from the encounter, and the stairs are the kind that you use to get out of pool. Two bars of metal to grip and about three steps. The water is about waist level. It really was an enjoyable experience. I brought my own camera, and their staff took amazing pictures. Have a great time!
