Owner description: 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 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.

they use nurse sharks, which are harmless and never ever bite anyone. Nothing scary about it, but they do not tell you that! Had a fine time with the dolphins. DO ask questions abot the animals or you will not learn anything, though.

Just to get in to the park it cost $49 per person. THis was particularly ridiculous for the members of our group who had no interest in the activiites inside but wanted to go to the restaurant/eating area (and pay). My husband and I thought we'd look around and see what we'd want to do. After pay the $100 for... More

Enjoyed our time here, Swam with the Dolphins but needed more time. We got picked up from the hotel at 12:15 but didn't get there until 1pm and had to be ready to be picked-up for 5pm. By the time we swam with the dolphins and grabbed a quick lunch, we were back waiting for the bus! Perfect little getaway... More

This was an amazing experience. We did the Ultimate swim so we had two dolphins with the two of us. We go a great deal through Thomas Tours. Got in with Stingrays, held parrots and ran out of time for the rest but well worth the money. Also there were very few people there because of the cruise ship not... More

We booked this through our adults only resort, so we went for a special evening show. They greet you with drinks and appetizers, and you mingle and get your photo taken with the parrots. Then they take you down for a sundown dolphin show, a quick pirate show/shark feeding demonstration, and a little party on their boardwalk. The dolphins show... More

Can be a little pricey but space out your time swimming, drinking and eating the excellent food. The servers were extremely pleasant. New Years Eve was a great time!

Had in-water experience with Toni (female dolphin) who delighted us with jumps, dances, belly ride and kisses;). Very informative encounter with Ziggy (female dolphin) who illustrated how she uses sonor to find objects .. The Dolphins were alert, full of fun and appear to enjoy... More
