Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Was put off by the prices so did not go in. We saw 3 other groups leave during the 10 minutes we were there as it was so overpriced.

Very little information given out when I arrived. I was not told until it was too late that I could go snorkelling with the sting rays. The swim with the dolphins was good. I found the employees sarcastic and very unhelpful

A nice getaway from the resort. Loved the pirate and shark show. We participated in the dolphin encounter where you got to touch a dolphin. A bit disappointed that no cameras were allowed...as well as the hurry up and wait aspect of it. Good shopping, snorkeling and a nice beach. Food was very pricey and not very good...bring your own...

Great time for the kids. Dolphin Cove is a lot more than just Dolphins. They only thing I wish was better was the amount of time in the water with the dolphins. For the money I would say we got the value.

We were on a cruise, landed in Ocho Rios, and had already purchased our shore excursion for this attraction. It was also included the Dunn's River Falls and some shopping time at the Taj Mahal Shopping Center. The dolphins were amazing, and we enjoyed our time in the water with them VERY much. The people there have this down to... More

We left our ship, Ms. Eurodam, to have an encounter with the dolphins. The ride to the attractions was nice as our tour guide Yolandie was pleasant and freely shared information about the island which was interesting. We (three vans full of people) then were ushered to the cove to spend time with the dophins. (TIP: If you want certain... More

My wife and I took our two kids in December of 2012. The kids are 10 and 14. We all had a amazing time. We got to spend a lot of time with the dolphins but when you are in the water it seems to go by way to quick as you never want to get out. I would definitely... More
