Dolphin Cove has energetic, athletic, and intelligent dolphins that will give you the thrill of a lifetime! I will always treasure my time with these dolphins performing a foot push, interactive swim, and receiving that once in a lifetime kiss. The staff expertly guided me through the process for each swimming event with the dolphins leading the way in the... More

Bought the Ultimate Dolphin Swim for my daughter and son-in-law as their Christmas present for when they visited us this February. I thought it was excellent value and they both told us they'd had a fabulous experience. The staff were friendly and professional and made them feel at ease with the dolphins. The lagoon setting for the dolphins was brilliant,... More

Booked the string ray sandbar and dolphin swim on our cruise ship. We meet at dock and after much confusion we got our wrist bands and got on shuttle to dolphin cove. You stop at a little shade cover and wait for other groups to arrive. Look for the little frogs hiding in the corners of the cover. You take... More

A recent trip to Dolphin Cove was great fun! We were fortunate to have only three people in our dolphin experience. Another visitor told me that during a previous visit, she had been in an incredibly large group from a cruise ship. That certainly would have negatively affected the experience. We went on a brief tour of the facilities. We... More

I just returned from a cruise on the Regal Princess in which this excursion was offered.I am so happy I booked it! And I am happy I could book it online prior to sailing as it fills up quickly due to limited spots. This was a combination Dolphin and Stingray City excursion. The Stingray City part was first for my... More

If you are the thinking kind of person you will enjoy this experience because it is more than cross-cultural, It is Cross-Species, and our cousins use a much higher percent of their brains which are larger than ours, so they tend to treat us with curiosity, and profound respect. The effect of being aided by a dolphin who can easily... More

We truly enjoyed our experience (Sally was great!) The staff was courteous, humerous & accommodating. As a licensed veterinary technician I can honestly say that the amount of respect & the bond between trainer and Dolphins was noticeable. This truly was an experience of a lifetime.

My wife and I did the Dolphin swim and Stingray Encounter while on our cruise. This was amazing, very informative on both the dolphins and stingrays. Swimming with the dolphins was a once in a lifetime type experience, but Stingray City was really awesome. The staff was helpful and informative. I would definitely do both of these if I make...

My wife and I had swam with dolphins already twice in different countries, and those were so-so experiences: often too commercial and less focused on the experience itself. So we were a bit suspicious about this one. But we were wrong! This was a great day: very clear and funny explanations, and more than half an hour in the water... More
