We paid for the package to "swim with and ride" the dolphins. The time with the one dolphin was very short. While I am sure the dolphins are cared for, we couldn't help but to be a little sad about the faith of these dolphins,...More

Six, yes. Younger? Probably not. They have to wear a life jacket as they water is probably 8-14' deep. I'd consider booking when you get to Bahia Principe. We stayed there as well and were able to negotiate a better rate.
