We booked the dolphin swim and stingray through our Carnival cruise ship. $150/pp. We had 6 in our group. The stingrays were AWESOME. The dolphin was good, not great. We had to pay $150 to get a CD of our images. The dolphin was very cool, but not sure you wouldn't get a similar experience at any destination that allows... More

I would highly recommend a trip to Dolphin Cove! We were there for the first experience in the morning, which was perfect because it was just the two of us with the dolphins, Reggae & Sally We were actually in the water as part of the "ultimate experience" for over 30 minutes. Our trainer, O.J. , was awesome! He made... More

Ken G , is spot on with his review , so no point repeating it. Lots of igauna's arround , they pose for pictures and you don't get ripped off. Look out for the conch shells on sale for $10 , they are a banned inport into the USA.

I signed up for a Stingray City and Dolphin Encounter with my cruise ship. Price was $100 pp and I was not disappointed! We did the Dolphin Encounter first, which unfortunately wasn't too interesting. It felt rushed, as they had to accommodate for 18 people per dolphin where everyone had to hold hands (dance) with the dolphin and then kiss... More

We booked the Dolphin Swim through Carnival, and had a great time. After getting back from Stingray City we were fitted for our life vests, and headed down to get in the water, and swim with dolphins. You aren't able to take your own photos, and the price for them is a little ridiculous in my opinion. I bought the... More

We were a party of three adults. Before coming I asked if we could take our own photos and answers "yes". When we arrived they didn't allow us to take cameras. They offered they own photographer and we had no choice than agree. We asked to take photos in RAW format, to edit them and we were refused. Dolphins are... More

Enjoyed the dolphin encounter. Very short time spent with Dolphin, but that is probably best for the dolphin. Also was invited to feed the Love Birds. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The price of the photos were outrageous.

What a delightful experience! The staff was fun and courteous, the dolphins were ready to play with us and we had so much fun in the water, dancing and swimming with the dolphins, petting the dolphins and giving them a belly rub. They took pics of the whole encounter and even though it was a bit pricey ($120), we bought... More
