Well, if you really like having dolphins in your face, swimming up behind you, and making noises, then this is the place for you. If you are ready to figure out whether you are cool with dolphins or actually pretty terrified by them, don't pass up this chance to find out. As for me? terrified. My family had fun, though.

We took our 1 year old to see the dolphin and shark "shows" which turned out to be watching the people who paid to swim with the animals, not a real show as you might see at an aquarium, but it was still entertaining. The best part is walking in the aviary and having lovebirds land on you, and snorkeling... More

When in Grand Cayman on our Family Cruise in March 2015, we went to the Dolphin Cove Dolphin Swim and Stingray City- SO. Much. Fun. It is not every day you can swim with a dolphin and get pictures with them kissing your cheek! It really was such a fun experience, one that I will not forget! The stingray bar... More

It was amazing to be able to touch the dolphins. Those who could swim had a great time.The park is restful and there are chairs in the shade or in sun to sit on. There is a bar on the dock for your convenience.

Swimming with dolphins is not something I would bother doing again. But, you have to try it once! Also, get to so some snorkelling which was neat to see the stingrays. It's a pretty "touristy" location; probably would not repeat this one.

This is a great experience for a family of all ages. We had three generations on the trip. In the water with dolphins and stingrays. The dolphin experience was well run. Other attractions good. Weather poor for boating. Lunch on site was only fair. Very slow service and as such missed an attraction( Shark feeding). The value is there but... More
