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

My family and I have just come back from our second time at doling cove Grand Cayman, and while two of us had done it before with other members of our family last year and had an amazing time, this time the experience was even better. We took lots of time and did sting ray city first, a great experience... More

Used a coupon in one of the GC travel guides to get the swim package $50 off -- even if I hadn't had the coupon the cost was totally worth it. You are pushed through the water by 2 dolphins superman style, then dragged in a dorsal tow. They also have the dolphin kiss you (hilarious) and you kiss back.... More

If you’re visiting Grand Cayman, even if it’s just a stop on a cruise, I cannot recommend an adventure more than Dolphin Cove! There are several cost options, but if at all possible, please spend the extra money to swim with the dolphins! Very cool. You'll thank me.

We booked the encounter (the non-swim package) and had a lot of fun. It lasts about 20 minutes depending on how big your group is. The trainer was hilarious and obviously loves what he does! The only thing that took away from our experience is that after browsing our pictures, we decided that it was way too expensive (~$100 for... More

We booked this on a cruise and got the Stingray City/Dolphin Swim package. It was $99 a person and worth every little penny. Don't do a cheaper package, do at least the swim..... and as someone else said, they will match offers from other sites. Another thing before I get into it is that if you let them take pictures...

1st and most importantly - This was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone. End of story. There are 2 Dolphin swim companies on Grand Cayman? Which is better? Honestly I would say they are the same. We did both. Roughly the same price Almost exactly the same experience There is not really anything at either of... More
