Dolphins cove is a lovely place with much more than just dolphins to see. There are other sea life and birds to admire and interact with. There's a lovely nature trail and somewhere to eat that doesnt cost much. There are shows throughout the day and there is a little shingle beach with sunbeds to relax on. We went on... More

Just returned from dolphin cove and it was excellent. Had thought it might be tacky, crowded and overly commercialised but completly wrong. It's small, laid back but set up enough to cope. A genuine experience. Dolphins incredible. Trainers are clear and help you have a great experience. Photos are great so no biggy to leave your camera in your bag.... More

This is more suited to families and the young at heart. Very action packed day and you need an endless supply of energy as there is so much to do. The highlight for me was being in with the dolphins.

The kids LOVED swimming with the dolphins and with the stingrays!!! We felt like dolphin trainers when we were finished. We loved the different animal hands on exhibits in the little jungle too.

Phenomenal experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The trainers are very articulate and precise with instructions to ensure you understand all aspects of the experience and what is expected.
