Owner description: This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest.

Very nice, clean park. Lots to do - swim with the dolphins, play with manta rays, shark exhibit, and nature trail. The dolphins were fun, very energetic and smart. Pretty expensive but you get a lot of time with them in close proximity. Also got to be in the water with manta rays and hold and touch them. Very cool.... More

Expensive but worth every penny! Dolphin enclosures are sectioned off parts of ocean, excellent staff and facilities. Ultimate swim is a lifetime experience. Felt very sorry for parrots that spent whole day just being put on people shoulders.

I loved our time with the dolphins. It is a little costly for the amount of time you actually spend with the dolphins but it was a good experience.

This was a great, great morning. We did the dolphin swim which was ages in the pool with the dolphins, but for sure you should do the full experience if you can where they give you a nose push out of the water. We met Dean, one of the owners who is a great guy. Highly recommended for couples and... More

My husband hadn't really wanted to go as he thought it was too expensive but we had the opportunity to go with a group so transportation was reasonable & the visit was great. It was $45.00 per person but was well worth the money. There was lots to see & do without paying additionally. We really enjoyed the dolphin show... More

It's amazing how much strength the dolphins have to pull you through the water. The staff was very friendly. This was my most exciting adventure in Ocho Rios.

This place was really fun with lots to see and do. Our entrance fee included interacting with a stingray and my son paid some extra to interact with the nurse sharks. He ended up being a part of a entertaining shark and pirate show. Of course, we had to pay for our photos but that's typical. There were gift shops... More
