It was impressive to see these dolphins sometimes very close. I personally prefer to pay to see animals in their natural space. It was successful and we felt a real interest in these endearing animals. An unforgettable moment.

Everything's fine. Immediate admission even if you arrive early even if you can enter early only in the 30 minutes preceding the booked time slot. All perfect.

Very emotional! Punctual crew, available, attentive to the needs of the participants, even the little ones! Experience to repeat! Highly recommended!
