I came here as part of an excursion via Royal Caribbean. The journey from St. Thomas to Tortola was equally as memorable as the act of swimming with the dolphins. First, we walked from the dock where the boats were, through a private marina, and onto the motorboat which took us to Tortola. It took about an hour. We passed... More

This was an amazing experience..... we were on a Caribbean Cruise and decided to do Swimming with the dolphins in Nov 2013. It was an awesome experience and me and my wife loved it. My wife is not a comfortable swimmer and was a little apprehensive. The trainers were extremely helpful and personally assisted her during the swimming with the... More

I've actually done a swim-with-dolphins experience elsewhere (in Puerto Vallarta) so I have something to compare this to. What was really good about this: The dolphins seemed well-treated, and more than willing to interact with us (in exchange for lots of fish). I greatly enjoyed the belly swim (and the foot push) as well as just learning a lot about... More

I admit to booking this to appease our three young kids during a cruise stop in Tortola. I had low expectations - believing this would be a terrible tourist trap. I was impressed by the professionalism of the handlers of the animals. They dolphins are trained incredibly well. You participate in the experience as a small group of ten folks... More

What at wonderful experience! It was a quick drive from the cruise port. We arrive and we were quickly outfitted with life vests and introduced to our guides/photographer. After a quick tutorial we entered the water and the experience began. The water was a bit cooler than I anticipated but it quickly warmed up. The guides were very personable and... More

I've wanted to swim with dolphins for as long as I can remember so jumped at the chance to do it today! I have two young sons and went with a friend and his two young children too. It was amazing! We arrived late but that wasn't a problem. We went for the middle package which was just perfect. The... More

Bought the Royal package and picture CD, totally worth it. Fun day, definitely a highlight of the trip. Marco the trainer was great, so was our photographer. We had our six month old with us and they made it so easy. She even got kissed by a dolphin. Would do it again.

You might be able to get past the fact that the poor dolphins are kept in captivity here in sad little murky ponds (for decades and without chance for return to the wild). You might be able to get past the depressed looking employees. You might overlook the old musty life-jackets they make you wear. You might be amused enough... More

My husband and I came to BVI for our Honeymoon and this was high on our priority list of 'must's' for our trip! It was worth EVERY penny! The staff was fabulous and the Dolphins were well taken care of and so happy! We swam 1 on 1 with Boliver, Gracia, Hippo, and Ayla. Our trainers were Jamal, Maria, and... More
