It was a pleasant surprise to learn that our booking included bonding with parrots before and a boat trip to stingray city after swimming with the dolphins. But as everybody has to be in the water at the same time and non participating visitors are kept far away, you have to pay heavily for the pictures taken by the photographer,... More

A must do while on the island. It is a little pricey, especially if you want photos or a video, but it is a wonderful experience. Being pushed on the bottom of your feet in the cove by 2 dolphins is remarkable. There are encounters for all age groups and swimming abilities, so there is something for everyone in the... More

well the ray excursion was a blast, and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. Spent way more than enough time with the rays even in a large group. Photographers pictures were excellent even though we have our own. Still may buy his online especially if the price was better. The dolphin swim was ok, a little short and not enough time... More

Our condos gave us a deal for the stingray tour and dolphin swim combo. First thing we did was the Stingray tour. We were a little freaked out at first because of the massive cruise ship crowd. But, all the cruise shippers were put on one boat, and the people who booked individually got to go together on a smaller... More

This was a great experience for our 9 year old grandson. He loved every minute of it but I could have done with just watching him and not paying the money to do it myself. We found a coupon online to get $50 off the price of each ticket for the ultimate experience at dolphin cove as $159 is a... More

This was a really fun experience. We did the Dolphin experience which we should have paid the extra for the swim. You stand with about 30 other people down on a dock, you take turns getting in the water standing on a platform in groups of 10 and then kiss, dance, and touch. It was fun and would be great... More

We took my mother (in her 70's) and teenage son, and everyone had fun! We did the Dolphin Swim listed for $139 US with the free admission to the turtle farm (on a side note: glad I did not pay for the turtle farm visit). We found a 25% off coupon in the current Cayman Map which brought the price... More

I would like to say this was the experience of a life time, but it was not. You get 30 minute in the water with the dolphins for $159. You can't take photos, but they will sell you the photos they take for $120 for disk will all or $35 each 5x7. We felt these prices were greedy and indicative... More

We loved swimming with the dolphins, although it was a bit of a shorter experience than I had hoped. The staff is really professional and not pushy, which I appreciated. (Which is very unlike most island attractions) Sting Ray City was our favorite part of the trip though, and it was amazing to be there in the middle of the... More

This was an incredible experience. The staff were very engaging and funny. They made you feel very at ease with getting in the water with the dolphins. They have different packages that include different experiences with the Dolphins....go for the ultimate package. Two dolphins pull you by grabbing their fin, they push you by your feet with their nose so... More
