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 also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks. 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. Come for the day, for memories of a lifetime.

We signed up for the ultimate swim dolphin excursion & it was wonderful! This is our second time swimming with dolphins. The ultimate swim included a foot push, dorsal swim, and 2 dolphins kissing you! We also got to "pet" them (they swim by & you can touch their bellies & backs). It must have been maybe 45 minutes in... More

Jewel Paradise Cove gave us a free upgrade to the Ultimate Experience (swim with 2 dolphins). It was amazing and wonderful to swim with 2 dolphins. You get to kiss each of them and they kiss you for the camera. This also includes a ride holding on to their dorsal fins and a two foot push out of the water... More

This was so much fun! At first, had butterflies about getting in the deep water with 2 dolphins, but had such a great time interacting with Beta & Cometa that I was sorry to have to get out of the water. You first learn some commands and safety info, the tour guide was hysterical. Then you get to give the... More

Pleasant surprise upon arrival at Dolphin Cove. Before our Swim package, my husband, daughter and I had time to enjoy the amusing Shark Show, checked out the beautiful Parrots, fed colorful Love Birds (sweet!), visited and fed the bunnies and guinea pigs, went kayaking, and finally... enjoyed a wonderful swimming encounter with a five year old dolphin named Alex.

The time we spent there was very enjoyable. I only wish we had paid the extra money to allow us to get into the water with the dolphins. Great photo opportunity for a photo enthusiast. Vendors were not as forceful as other places we visited. A simple polite no thank you worked well.

Very costly and enclosed. This is an experience of a lifetime to always remember but expensive per person. I prefer to swim with the stingrays.

My Family and I visited Dolphin Cove while we in Ocho Rios. The experience with the dolphins was fun and over priced like most tourist attractions. The main reason for my review is while paying for excursion, The person behind the counter took my credit card with him in the backroom. I objected to the other lady at the front... More

We had the Swim package at $116 pp. Was well worth it!! You spend about 45 mins in water with dolphins. You then have access to many other attractions. I.e. Mini Boat rides with 25 HP engines; kayak, swim with manta rays; shark show, nature trail. Picture and video packages are expensive.
