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

I flew my nephew out to the British Virgin Islands so he could swim with the dolphins and get a stamp on his passport. We selected the Discovery Swim package. As a non swimmer, I thought I would sit by the side while my nephew joined the group and did the activities. They insisted that I join and they would... More

We did the Royal Swim already in 2008 with our two sons and it was a life time experience for us. When I read all the recent reviews, I am happy to see that Dolphin Discovery still makes dreams come true!

We did the royal swim and it was perfect! Lots of time with the dolphins. Trainers were great! Pictures were expensive but so worth it!

Fabulous experience which was everything it said on the website. Observers were allowed to take photos despite several reviewers saying otherwise but the DVD was good value anyway. We booked online in January and got 25% off so booked the ROYAL which was the full monty. We both managed the swim and the push out of the water despite being... More

We stayed on Tortola and I booked the Dolphin Royal Swim experience on-line for a 10:00 am time - which I noted was less crowed than the mid-day schedules. With the Royal Swim you have more interaction time with the dolphins and completely worth the money. At the age of 55, I wanted to do something completely different. It was... More

We took a cruise through the Eastern Caribbean that stopped in Tortola. We thought a dolphin swim would be so much fun, so we booked the Dolphin discovery tour. We were told it would include transportation to/from the cruise ship. We paid $169 for the tour. When we got there, they THEN decided to tell us we could not have... More
