I was skeptical about the price and the experience. Boy was I wrong. The experience was out of this world. My new husband and I were in the water with two dolphins for about 25 min. It was so neat! Def something to remember! There isn't any one walking around taking pictures. So your options are to hire one of... More

August 2013, my girlfriend and I went to Dolphins Cove. We had an amazing experience and the staff was great! We participated with their Sea Lion and Dolphin interactions and would definitely recommend it if you are in the Key Largo area!

We visited here in February and we had the best time. We followed others advice on the forums and booked the last swim of the day and luckily we were alone in the water with the dolphins. No other families booked the last swim so all four of us got plenty of time in the water, and since it was... More

I visited Dolphin Cove back in 2008, with young students. I went for the education, and interaction. I remember that it was worth it back then because we had over an hour of dolphin ecology and lessons mixed in which is why I booked with them again. In 2008, there was a much heavier emphasis on education for students, and... More

This is one of the best places to go for a Dolphin Swim. The fact that the trainers care so much about those dolphins is amazing. You also get to do the swim in their natural habitat, not in a pool like most of the places out there. This was simply incredible!!!

It obviously had to be a unique experience, an encounter with another form of intelligence. But the time spent in the water with the dolphins was no more than 10 mn. They advertize for a 1hr and a half tour though. We spent most of our times watching other small groups do what will do later. And as we were... More

Poor dolphins and hated being rushed in production line for a 5 minute interaction. Not worth the drive or $220.00.

I visited the cove last week. My partner filmed my experience on our camera and I only spent 9 minutes interacting with the dolphins. I felt like I was in the middle of a production line. A couple of tricks then change with another woman, a couple of tricks and out. I think there should be less people in the... More

Had the experience of a lifetime! The education and hands on interaction with Dolphins is the best experience I've ever had. The staff were super nice and knowledgeable and accommodated every level of swimmer. I chose the waist level wading program, and got to interact with the baby dolphin Issac. So cute and so much fun. Price is high, but... More

Our 3 year old had a chance to kiss Samantha the dolphin! She absolutely loved it! Hopefully next time she will be old enough to swim with them too!
