I couldn't believe I was actually swimming with a dolphin! This was a great experience not only for our teanage son but for us as well. Plus the boat ride from the pier to Tortola was fantastic. The trainer was excellent and gave us all his time and attention. I have rated as very good and not excellent as It... More

I have never seen my husband excited as when he was interacting with the dolphins! This was both our first time swimming with them. We came on a very rainy day. We got the basic package which did not include swimming with the dolphins, just to interact with them,but the trainer found out we came a long way and let... More

For many us the thought of being propelled through the water on the back of a dolphin is something that we probably never imagined would ever happen, but if you find yourself in the British Virgin Islands this is exactly what you can do! Dolphin Discovery is just a short walk from the center of town. Once there it is... More

Overall this activity was great. Although I wish we had more time with the dolphins, we all did have fun interacting with them. We opted for the Dolphin Royal Swim, even though we were on a cruise, I reserved our adventure online separate from the cruise and saved a considerable amount of money. Once on the dock we hired a...

Don't be discouraged when you get there. It doesn't look anything like the brochures. However, it was a great experience to swim and play with the dolphins with their great trainers. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable and we all did have a great day there. Definitely worth the trip to Tortola from St. Thomas. It was only a half... More

My husband and I visited the Dolphin Discovery as an excursion of a cruise we were sailing on. As soon as we arrived, we were given life vests and watched a short video about how to interact with the dolphins. Before long, we were headed into the water. I was a little nervous as I did not know what to... More

Recently did this as an excursion on a cruise. I was hesitant as I am not great in the water and wasn't sure about the actual living conditions of the dolphins but signed up anyway. Must say that the trainer was patient and informative. I believe her name was Stephanie. There was a young boy in the tour who was... More

We purchased the trip from Thomson Cruise. It covered the transport to the dolphin centre, on a comfortable coach, which was only about 15 minutes :) On arrival we were given the safety talk, asked if we wanted to upgrade to include a dorsal fin pull or a foot push for extra cost and split into groups, issued with good...

I was vacationing in Tortola for the week and was excited to check out Dolphin Discovery and interact with dolphins for the first time. I had a great time doing something new and the trainers were very knowledgeable. I would recommend this to anyone! The only downside to the day was that I got, what I believe to be, jellyfish...

OMG this was amazing!!! My family of 6, ages 25-62. went and had the time of our lives. The trainer was very educational about the habitat the dolphins live in and how, contrary to movies and bad press, the dolphins have a better life and longer life expectancy in captivity. They are loved and given great care. The photos were... More
