Booked through Thompson and the excursion included Dunns river falls, however having done this on our last trip to Jamaica a couple of years ago, we opted out. We felt there was more than enough to see and do here, even though we had at least an hour more than those who had visited Dunn's river. Loved the rabbits and... More

Fun chance to swim with the dolphins. We did the single dolphin and were not disappointed. We were picked up by shuttle at our hotel.

I absolutely loved the experience with the dolphins, sharks and stingrays and the trainers were great, but the service when entering was terrible. We had multiple excursions booked before we arrived...Dolphin Encounter (11:30), Dolphin Swim (12:15) and Shark Encounter (1:00). We arrived with 2 other couples. The gentleman gave all of us a waiver to fill out and brought the... More

It was a fantastic experience! It was so wonderful to be up close and interact with the dolphins. They are amazing creatures. My favourite part was after our dolphin adventure, i was in the stingray/snorkelling section, and over by the border fence to the other pen, looking at fish, when a young dolphin on the other side of the fence...

I took two 20 yr olds and one 14 yr old. So much fun. Swimming with the Dolphins was amazing. It's one of those things that is worth it to do once in a lifetime. Wish I had known about the Saver card though. They take pictures for you and a video. It was only $110.00 totally worth it in... More

This place was super duper fun!! My 13-year-old daughter and I went here for my birthday during our stay in Jamaica and purchased the Ultimate Swim with the dolphins...so amazing!! We purchased the Jamaica Travel Saver card in advance and then booked directly with Dolphin Cove which ensured we paid 2-for-1 which saved a lot! Everyone who assisted or came... More

Was on my bucket list. Nice park. Dolphins seemed well taken care of. Shark show was a bit cheesy. Nice beach area and a bird Avery that was cool

We chose to swim with the dolphins, what an experience! The place had quite a bit to do but you have to know what to expect so you can plan your day wisely. We were somewhat on a time frame so the next time we go we'll do better at managing our time. We will do this again and include... More

The catamaran ride was adventurous, the men steered the boat w/their feet and from the back. We were close to the ocean since it was a tiny boat. Be certain to see the boat before boarding especially if you are not comfortable with a lot of people on a tiny boat. Numerous folks fell ill because the waves were large... More
