We visited this as part of a cruise excursion and the interaction with the Dolphins was terrific. Our guide was fun and friendly and our children really enjoyed the interaction. What lowers the rating is the exorbitant costs for the pictures. The visit was expensive enough and then to be presented with what seem to be overly expensive costs for... More

We absolutely adore dolphins - I have always wanted to swim with them, and this was so worth it. We put on life vests and watched a brief video before we went into the water.

My mom and I booked this as a Shore excursion on a Cruise vacation we took to the Caribbean. She was a little hesitant at first, but I'm glad I convinced her to do it. She is a senior citizen and doesn't speak English and I was glad the instructors spoke Spanish. We had a very good time and loved... More

This was such an amazing experience. The day we went it was only my husband and I in the water with the instructor and the dolphins. We had a blast. Check swimming with the dolphins off of my bucket list. Must do this. You won't be sorry!!

My wife and I took our 6 and 9 year old to this place and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was worth the expense. We took a ferry from Charlotte Amalie to Road Town. About an hour on the boat. Nice scenery as you pass by St John and the southern side of Tortola. When we got there it was our... More

It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. Being a huge Miami Dolphin fan, and dolphins being my favorite mammal, this experience was a bucketlister! Did not disappoint! Such beautiful, intelligent creatures. We showed up early and watched in amazement as the trainer used (what looked like simple) hand movements and the whistle to maneuver the dolphins. Our trainer was Jose and... More

We booked this through the website for Dolphin Discovery in Tortola and got a great deal for the Adventure Package. We took a taxi to the location from the cruise ship which was $5.00 a person. We arrived very early for our 11am time slot. We started our adventure at 10am, which was just fine with us. We checked in... More

My family swam at Dolphin Discovery as a cruise excursion and loved it! We all did the swim adventure and it was well worth the money. The trainer, Elwyn, was funny and patient. Hippo, the dolphin, was the best!!! Highly recommend! Our 7 and 10 year olds loved it (almost as much as the adults) :)
