I love dolphins

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

Had a lot of fun there with nice people that work there. Place is a little small, water is nice, not lots of sand, beach is rocky.

Thank you for your review. Yes at times our beach gets quite rocky. Being in a cove we are subject to nature and recently we have been having some heavy seas and other weather. As a result things get brought to the beach. We try to keep the area as clean as possible and I have directed your comments to... More

My daughter and I went while visiting Jamaica February 2014 and I paid $202US each for Dunns River Falls and the Dolphin Encounter combo, the Dolphin experience was OK the Dolphins are taken care of somewhat and have the biggest area of the Cove (Prob because they are the money makers). The Stingrays are in horrible conditions and when we... More

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your visit to our park. I can assure you that all the animals from the rabbits to the dolphins and everything in-between are looked after and cared for regularly. We have an onsite vet who is tending to the rays daily. The bruises came from them fighting with each other. I can... More

Experience with the dolphins is very well organized. Everything else at this attraction is overpriced and a money grab.

This was the most costly tour we took part in on our stay in Ochos Rios, but it was a lot of fun. They offer more than just the dolphins, they have bird sanctuaries, parrots, stingrays and a shark show. We closed the place down, because there was so much to see and do!

Loved swimming with Dolphins/Sharks/Rays. Kids held exotic birds, snakes, lizards. Friendly staff. Hate being approached after EVERY experience for a not-so-subtle hint for a tip. Hell, I was tipped out by the end
