Lots of fun not just swimming with the dolphins get to do a lot more,, be aware you have to pay for a locker for your stuff and you cannot take your own photos of your swim and have to pay for their photos.

Dolphin Cove is a marine attraction only minutes from the world famous Dunn’s River Falls. This park offers the experience of a lifetime of interacting with gentle bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat, the Caribbean Sea. One of the attractions, Dolphin Trek, was exceptionally unique. Open to only 6 guests at a time, you are fitted with a deep sea... More

I booked the Ultimate swim with my mum - loved every second. We had two dolphins which was amazing, we were probably in the water for about 30mins with the dolphins. I didnt think the pictures were too overpriced. We paid $13 per picture. You can also get DVD's. There is so much to do here aswell as the dolphins,... More

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.

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
