A little pricey, but worth it! I addition to swimming with the dolphins, there are other water activities that you can do.

Swimming with Dolphins was on my daughters list of things to do so we booked the excursion thru our resort. It's expensive $147 to swim but our three kids did it. They enjoyed it. Not a lot of other things to do snorkeling in a little spot same with kayaking. It's definitely not a full day to keep your occupied.... More

It was a beautiful experience and definitely worth doing. Dolphin Cove is owned by a private person so it is quite different from other attracting like the waterfall for example which are owned by a government. Tipping, is not allowed and the staff is quite friendly and professional. During the experience you get taught couple of moves to communicate with... More

The Dophin swim was well worth the price and we hung out at the beach snorkeling afterwards (included). The lifeguard was nice enought to snorkel... More

See dolphins in their natural habitat. The more we support parks like this the more they will capture and most get slaughtered :(

The experience of the Ultimate Swim is well worth the price, though there really ought to be more time in the water. Would be 5 stars except for the price-gouging costs if you want pictures.

I cannot say more than just go and do it, you will not regret it! There are three different dolphin greetings you can do: first being just an encounter where you say high to one dolphin, second where you swim with you dolphin and do the 'fin pull' and the third being the intimate swim allowing you to swim with...
