This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest. Visitors have the opportunity to interact and "Swim With" dolphins, enjoying the thrill and love of these amazing lovable animals. Visitors can also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks. Visitors can capture their dream of being a dolphin trainer by taking the challenge of being "Sea Keeper" for the day. Voted as Jamaica's Number One Attraction for a reason. Come for the day, for memories of a lifetime.

The dolphins we're awesome. The interaction was around 10 minutes. It should be a bit longer. The back and fourth there between the buildings is a bit bizarre.

We took a 30 ft ride hanging on the their fins. Then the last thing 2 dolphins came up and pushed your feet and they pushed... More

Went with a large family group of 18. All of us choose to either 'swim' with the dolphins or had a 'dolphin encounter'. Both options were good, even though at first we were concerned about thier welfare. It's not really swimming with them but one at a time holding onto their flippers and being dragged about 25 feet. The 'encounter'... More

This looked a little sketchy from the road but once we got inside it was really cool. There were different areas to see dolphins and there was a beach and wildlife trail where you could go into an aviary where the birds WILL land in you. (I'm terrified so I hated it) There were also rabbits and iguanas. Then you... More

I crossed swimming with dolphins off my bucket list at Dolphin Cove. The experience was the highlight of my vacation. Being in a natural cove, it was much more authentic and enjoyable than it might have been in an artificial aquarium. There are facilities for you to change into swim suits and lock your belongings (for a price) before you... More

This is a nice family attraction, the Dolphins will perform a nice show for you but beware you will get wet as you stand in the water so be sure to wear shorts and bring your towel. There is also a shark show and other small animals that you can pet. I gave this a 4 out of 5 as... More
