Hi. Myself, husband and daughter are booked to swim with the dolphins in November and we are all very excited. I just have a few questions 1) is there lockers to put stuff in and is there a charge for them?? 2) my daughter has very bad eye sight so wears prescription lensed (saftey lensed)swimming googles will she beable to wear these whilst swimming with the dolphins. (She really cannot see without them) Thank you so much.
