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.

Very expensive! I was turned off from get go but we adjusted our attitude and made the best of it. The swim with the Dolphins was only 30 mins and the strong current made it difficult to get around in the water. We all had hamburgers after the swim and they were ok (expensive). My son enjoyed petting Charlie the... More

We LOVED the dolphins! They are so well trained and care for. They love to entertain their guests, and you will not be disappointed. It is rather pricey, but they do take great care of the animals, so it is worth it. You cannot take photos during your actual experience (they take photos and sell them), but you can take... More

Honestly, spend the money do you ultimate swim - and sit back for the ride of a lifetime. My Fiance and I could not have been happier. The dolphins are trained so well, the people are so nice. It was an unbelievable experience.

My husband & I decided last minute to swim with dolphins. It was a once in a lifetime experience & we loved it. My husband hates water & can't swim we'll at all, & he even had a great time. I recommend for anyone, although a bit pricey, it was worth it.

Spent US$330 to have my three children swim with the dolphins and us as parents come to watch. They charged us parents each $20 for admission which I could understand if there was something to do there but all we did was sit on the bench and watch our children have their experience (tried to take pictures but it was...

We are glad we did this although would not return due to the cost. We purchased the Ultimate package and we were placed in a group of six. The swim and interaction time was limited. The dolphins were amazing. Again, glad we did this although wished it lasted longer. We got to do a two dolphin lift, a swim by... More

I just got back from my vacation in Jamaica with my husband and two young sons and we had a blast. Dolphin Cove was one of the attractions we spent time at and we're planning to visit there again when the weather is nicer.

First, let me see the place itself is incredible. Pricey but very nice. Our dolphin swim was scheduled to be at 1:00 and we didn't get to swim with them to nearly 4:30. It somewhat killed the day but you have to make the best of things. I will say I think that they have the single nicest beach area... More
