Dear AJ Thank you for the great feedback. The water temperature in the bay of islands is fantastic for swimming at present, and we are all loving it at lunchtime. Regards Carino Crew
Dear Madeline Thank you for your feedback, all comments are important to us. I am sorry if you did not receive the communication that you needed. We do have all the gear for swimming with dolphins. but we do not gear our guests up until we know that we are definitely going to put them in the water with the dolphins. We always give a dolphin swim briefing at the back of the boat and then gear our guest up with mask, snorkels and fins. I have spoken to the staff involved and for the future to be clear on what our procedures are. I am glad you still managed to enjoy the tour. regards Carino Crew
