Swimming with the dolphins was very fun. The only down fall was the venders on the property were very pushy.

Firstly I would recommend this trip to anyone, even though it is expensive and doesn't last very long. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You cannot take any camera's into the dolphin enclosure, not of any type. So you then have to purchase their photo's. Well we went all out and paid $109 for the supposed whole package... More

You don't just swim with the dolphins they make you do tricks with them. I am 48 and I was lifted into the air (about 4 feet) by two dolphins. My 9 year old did it too. Should not be missed. The cove is great to spend the day. Birds, sharks, pirates and a relaxing beach to swim in.

went to this Cove to swim with the Dolphins. I paid $95.00 each to swim with them, We only did it for a total of 10 minutes each. What a waste of time aand money.

I love it there. I got the chance to interact with the sting rays. I could have gone swimming with the dolphins but opted not to. They had a few species of birds, lizards and snakes. The ice-cream there was awesome though I cant remember what brand it was. The beach was fun to hang out. Price was high but... More

Great place for family, food was very ordinary though. But well organized, helpful and great staff. Have to book and advance. No queues which is great. Kind of expensive but worth it

We did the Ultimate Swim, pricey though our hotel rep gave us a significant discount. Spending almost an hour with the dolphins was incredible. They are so gentle and fun. We were in a group of 10 with 2 dolphins, watched them do tricks, petted them, and got kisses from them. Then there were the two rides, one in which... More

You have three choices of interactions with the dolphins. Choose based on your personal comfort level - I simply cannot stress that enough. It will make the experience more magical if you are relaxed and enjoying yourself. You do not have to be a swimmer to enjoy a good interaction at this facility. They also offer interaction(s) with sharks and... More
