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.

This is a must if you are somewhere near to Ocho Rios. You realy swim with the dolphins. We enjoyed it verry much and our 5 year old loved it and can not stop speaking about it. The only downside is that you can not take your own pictures and they sell you a lot of picture and some videos... More

If you can afford it it is the way to go. There are discounts available. You can book on Monday for any day of the week and save about $100 for 2 people. There a lot to do before and after your swim. There is a guy on the boardwalk who will ask you if you want to see the... More

I love everything about this place! Last trip I swam with the dolphins, wow, what a serene experience and this time I swam with a shark. I wasn't scared until I stepped in the water but the guide was amazing! I was the only one to do it, everyone else just watched and was too chicken! Look, I am a... More

Swimming with the dolphins has been number one on my bucket list forever! The staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Arby was our dolphin and she was amazing. I also got to hold and kiss a stingray which was an unexpected bonus. With my tour there was no time to enjoy the kyaks, so if I am blessed with a... More

The dolphin area of this attraction was beautiful. Words cannot describe how pretty it looked the day we went. We loved our trainer and the time we had swimming with the dolphin Zeus. It was a bit complicated getting our pictures developed with the dolphin. If we had to do it over again, we would not have gotten any pictures... More

I understand how you might feel about the value added attractions such as lizards and snakes etc however we must point out that we try to ensure that each guest feels that they have had a great experience and they may or may not have had opportunities to interact with these other animals. We are always looking for ways to... More

Excellent value for money as you pay for your dolphin swim/experience and can also participate in other activities such as snorkelling, sting ray and shark experiences. The only downside is that we were not aware of this when we booked so we missed out and had to request a day pass; the lady at front desk was extremely reluctant however... More
