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 really enjoyed the experience and the dolphins seem healthy and very well cared for. The enclosure is natural and very clean. Our only complaint is the heavy duty up-sell once you get there. Bring your wallet!

We spent the better part of the day here as part of the Holland America Line cruise stop. We didn't not sign up for the dolphin swim or the shark swim but we did enjoy the walk on the path and sitting by the beach. Along the path, two artisans were crafting items from wood and bamboo. The items were... More

Swimming with the dolphins was something we have always wanted to do. Wish the swim lasted a little longer, but it was still an amazing time. The price for the pictures they take was a little overpriced, but we got them anyway how could we not? Wish they would have taken a few more personal photos of my wife and... More

Dolphin touch was a big disappointment. We took the Dunn River and Dolphin touch from Royal Caribbean cruise line. It costs US$120, quite expensive. It took us nearly 1 hour to go from Falmouth to Dolphin cove. So we were quite rushed. Dolphin touch allows you to only touch and not swim with the dolphin. After waiting a while sitting... More

It was an amazing experience to swim with the dolphins, they need a little more stuff to do there though but it enjoyed it nonetheless
