Offer exceeded expectations!

Playing with the dolphins in the water and touching the sea lions - a "wow" experience even for adult men :-) We were lucky that there were only 4 people in the group with the dolphins, so everyone had a lot of possibilities to interact with the dolphins. The coaches were very sensitive and looked after us very well. The group was bigger for the sea lions, but the coaching was just as great as for the dolphins. There were many ways to touch the animals and play with them - even feeding them with small fish ... When do you get so close to dolphins and sea lions? The only downside: the pictures and videos that were taken are extremely expensive. 1 picture cost 5 US $, a DVD with all the pictures taken and the video at the Delfinaction a whopping 80 US $. Something should be worked on here - otherwise: ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED FOR YOUNG AND OLD!
