We were at Dolphin Discovery in March 2014 and the experience was memorable for two reasons. Firstly the swim with the dolphins was amazing - positive experience. Secondly - we bought the family of 4 pack of photos for $200 which includes a CD, 4 glossy photos and the ability to download photos via the internet for 30 days following... More

The place was clean, the dolphins treated like royalty, trainers were awesome, lots of space for the dolphins to swim around .. We had originally booked the basic... More

I knew it was going to be great, but it was even better then I imagined. To get that close to them and be able to touch and pet them was just the best. To see for yourself up so close just how smart, sweet and strong these mammals are was a true highlight to our trip. Swimming with the... More

We bought our tickets on the ship. Beware if you just want to watch and not actually swim. i.e. I wanted to swim w/ the dolphins but my husband did not, but still wanted to watch me swim with them. They make you buy an observer ticket that cost $75. JUST TO WATCH! .... It was amazing to be that... More

My husband, son and I visited Tortola on our Carnival Cruise on Thursday, March 27, 2014 and our excursion of choice was the Dolphin Swim Adventure at Dolphin Discovery. Beware that the cruise ships are charging a much higher price than what Dolphin Discovery does so you may want to book it separately. We arrived at Dolphin Discovery and were... More

We had a truly incredible interaction, flying through the air from swim position on the water with both dolphins pushing our feet to gain height. Secondly they swam behind you and... More

We arrived early and were able to see the trainers working with each of the dolphins. The it was our turn to get into the water and interact with them - what fun! The dolphins seemed to really enjoy being with us - they were as enthusastic about us as we were with the opportunity to swim with them! As... More

We were very skeptical about doing the Dolphin Discovery adventure, but after a lot of badgering by our children decided to make the investment. It was phenomenal and worth every dollar. We did not understand the packages and purchased the Royal Package. Again, definitely worth the investment. The staff and friendly and eager to share their knowledge and love of... More

We booked last minute from our cruise ship and did the Royal package. The taxi ride from the port is short. We spent a good hour in the water, the group was restricted to ten which meant we all had lots of hand on time with the dolphins. There are a lot of" photo opportunities" although I did not mind...
