I definitely would do this again. A little pricey - especially the photos they want to sell you - but it's such a great experience. And the animals (not including the dolphins) are really cool.

This place was so magical. Dolphins were THE BEST! We got the package where you swim with 1 dolphin that way you are actually in the water swimming with dolphin. Even though it was group of people with one dolphin you still get to enjoy your time 1-1 and I can't even describe how amazing it was! My dream just... More

We did the Teddy J jet boat ride to Dunn's river. It was so much fun and you feel like you will get tossed off :D....but no one ever falls off :(. The love birds sanctuary was AWESOME...and snorkling with the stink ray was pretty fun.

What an amazing day out,although a little costly,it is well worth it.The meals and service is excellent.If you decide to visit,i highly recommend that you go for the top attraction where you actually swim with the Dolphins,get towed,and pushed up into the air by their noses pushing your feet(incredible)The staff are great and ensure that everything is carried out safely...

I liked this attraction. I went to watch the dolphins, not swim with them. I got to do that, but from afar. The area where the dolphins were performing was off to the side of the a larger pool. I, and members of my group, sat on a bench in a very hot sun and watched dolphins swim with those... More

Do the shark encounter, really great. No reason to be afraid sharks are bottom dwellers. Tour guides were excellent, wish they had a tip jar around for the guys.

Dolphin Cove is nestled on the North Coast of Jamaica. it is 3 1/2 - 4 hours from Kingston and 2 hours from Montego Bay but it is truly a good place to visit and worth the drive. The Dolphins are well trained and they offer varying degrees of interaction - from petting to full on being catapulted through the... More

We went to Dolphin Cove. Swam with the Dolphins, highly recommend it. It's really authentic Jamaican, not commercialized or monstrous how US companies would run it so that was nice. Snorkeled with sting rays, not a lot of fish, but still a neat experience. They also had nurse sharks there as well, which is really neat to see. Be prepared... More

This place is really great for the whole family. We were pleasantly suprised when this ended up being much more than "just" a place to swim w/ Dolphins. You can snorkel w/ Rays and interact w/ them, see nurse sharks, hold iguanas, snakes, and birds, etc. Really close to the Jewel, Ocho Rios, etc. We had e great time.
