What a wonderful family experience! Even those that didn’t get in the water said they enjoyed watching the dolphins and listening and learning from Thalia and Angel! Swimming with wild dolphins is like no experience any of us has ever had! AMAZING!!!

Fue una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido en Puerto Vallarta, cualquier duda, nuestra guía Thalía nos la respondió. Nos explicó claramente con era la dinámica y lo que debíamos y no hacer para en primer lugar no molestar los delfines y en segunda para disfrutar la experiencia. Muchas gracias, Vallarta Natours

We had a wonderful trip! We learned so much, got to hear the whale underwater, see them close up and overall was a very enjoyable trip. Lisandro was a wonderful guide even though we missed Thalia. We hope she is feeling better and wish her congratulations again in her pregnancy! It’s so excited we are due the same time! Hope to see you again soon. Warmly, Amy (Your Beautiful Beginning)

Thalia is extremely knowledgable! Our experience was amazing! We chartered the boat for the Dolphin Experience. However, the dolphins were swimming too close to the whales for us to get into the water. But we were able to see numerous whales, dolphins, and a sea turtle. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this. It was actually our second time with Thalia, and we will absolutely do it again!

A wonderful experience for the whole family! The boat was safe, modern and luxurious; our captain capable and hard working and our guide really seemed to value the dolphin's opinions on whether or not they wanted to swim with us. It was very important to us to support a company who promotes sustainable stewardship of the valuable natural resources in the bay! We wanted to swim and interact with dolphins but not so badly that we would patronize a Dolphinarium (dolphin jail) and in the the end, we did. It was the highlight of our entire trip to PV, highly recommended!
