    Yes, the boat is for guests of the resort only. For $75 USD, per person, they sell day passes which include lunch and a beverage. Day passes are sold when room occupany is below 90%.

    In all of our trips to Aruba, we have only seen wild dolphins once while we are on the Tranquilo snorkeling cruise. It was fun watching them play with the boat, doing criss-cross patterns under it.

    I have seen them twice, it is pretty coooool! If they do an enclosure, it will probably end like the white / tiger display that was across from the Waterfront Restaurant.

    In the beginning it was kind of nice and the Crystal Casino had shows, then it started to get a little run down. They then moved the white tiger and brought in an elderly one, he was really struggling. Now it is gone.
