First we arrived late because of the ferry. They didnt hold that against us- as you know most of these islands run on"island time"- We met our trainer Marcus and our wonderful dolphin Bolivar. We asked questions and all were answered. When Marcus didnt know the answer he called over Rocky, the other trainer and he was extremely knowledgeable. Next... More

My wife and I decided that this cruise, when we got to Tortola, we were going to do the Dolphin swim. It was one of the most rewarding things that we have done in our lives. Be forewarned that this experience is a bit pricey, but looking back on it, it was worth the money. You get to give the... More

We were staying on St. Thomas and took a ferry to St. John and then Tortola. A bus then took us 15 minutes to the Dolphin Discovery place. Naturally they are in the business of selling pictures and, naturally, we bought them. We had a great time. The trainers were informative and highly skilled. You stand in the water, which... More

I really enjoyed my day at Dolphin Discovery in Tortola. The trainers were friendly and very good. I was in a group of 10 and we were the only people in our group which was good. The only issue I would say is that it is quite expensive (I paid about £120 for the experience and one photo CD and... More

I bought a private excursion to this place online. Once on the ship, I realized it was harder to get to then I expected and decided to take the ship excursion.

Really lovely experience swimming with dolphins. The instructors are all really friendly and make it an experience never to forget. They have a photographer there to snap pics of you and the dolphin, but be aware that they charge a lot for these pics (particularly because tourists will pay it). We (family of 4) bought a CD with about 20... More

We took the ferry from St. John to visit Dolphin Discovery on Tortola. It's about a 20 minute cab ride from the dock after you go through customs. The area is divided into several pools connected to the ocean. We watched people interacting with the dolphins while we waited for our turn. After orientation and donning a lifejacket, you walk...
