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.

Great! Ultimate Dolphin Swim was excellent

Everything was amazing. The only drawback is it has signs that tipping is against their policy, but EVERYONE asks for tips.

My review should be read in context with some facts: This month (July 2014) was my third visit to Jamaica, the last having been around 20 years ago. The first two visits were to stay for an extended time on the island at various resorts, and this most recent visit was via a cruise ship, which ported at Falmouth. I... More

It was nice, but way overpriced..and you have to buy their pics, since taking pics near the Dolphins is not allowed Which is ok, but waaaay overpriced. The grounds are nice, take your camera.

It was fun for the children, but afterwards we ordered a video and pictures. We payed $97 for a video and the pictures we got the wrong video-- it was someone else. We called and told them and they said to e-mail. I e-mailed them twice and I still have no response.

The place is gorgeous and worth more credit but overrun by Terrible staff. The water from Dunns falls, the forest atmosphere, clean beach, and surrounded by nature are all worth seeing but be warned of the not so conducive environment at this park from staff and vendors. Many are very Unhappy people demanding for a handout when no one is... More

We met our tour guide, Germane, at the cruise terminal in Falmouth. Little did we know we were in for the best day of our cruise. He had us singing and laughing all the way to Dolphin Cove as he taught us songs, explained Jamaican culture and shared historical facts with us about 'the island'. He was extraordinary in that...

Loved the close-encounter with the dolphins (we swam with them, got a kiss from one and got a ride from one!) Did not like that it was quite a drive from our hotel and had to stop to pick up 2 other couples from another hotel (who weren't ready to go on time, so we had to wait which added... More

Our family of 5 was so excited for this experience that we forked over almost $700 so all 5 of us could participate. Everything about this excursion could have been improved. We were picked up at our Beaches resort 20 min late then rode on a bus for an hour as we had to go pick up other couples and... More

A little pricey, but worth it! I addition to swimming with the dolphins, there are other water activities that you can do.
