Value for money. We went there a family of five: the youngest daughter 8 was not a great swimmer yet. Not a problem we all enjoyed the same outstanding experience of interacting with dolphins (Samantha and her baby Isaac). The life jacket they provide transforms the swim in a nice floating moment, very suitable to us (again for Chloe the... More

Swimming with dolphins should be on most people's bucket list and the wonderful people at Dolphin Cove make the experience unforgettable. Your time there begins with an educational talk about dolphins, what Dolphin Cove does, and how to handle the dolphins when you are swimming with them in the water. Perhaps the talk went on a bit too long but... More

We would recommend this adventure ; the experience was well done ; both of our kids had a good amount of time individually experiencing the different positions of the swim with the dolphins . The trainers were well equipped to do the job and the atmosphere was friendly and felt safe .

$330 for two children plus $20 for two adults watching (you can see Dolphins for free from any Pier). After registration we got a 20 minutes talk about Dolphins which most of us knew anyway and if not, you can look it up on the internet. What was useful was the education of how to hold your hands and what... More

Swimming with the dolphins is something you will never forget! They are amazing animals. We had a great experience - money well spent. I think this group also does dolphin rescues and rehabilitation's in the area so I think some of the money is used for finance those excursions. We actually visited June2013.

This experience is absolutely the best money we spent on vacation. Although the experience is very pricey it is well worth it. I took my family of 6 to this activity, my wife and 4 year old daughter ended up watching from the side as I swam with my other kids (17,10, and 7). My Daughter wanted to swim with... More

A dolphin encounter is pricy, ie swimming with the dolphins or standing there getting your photo taken with them (pricy photo op if you ask me). Luckily they offer entry to watch only for $10 adults, $5 for kids. The trainers gave us the opportunity to stay after the other guests left and watch ad they did medical checks and... More

My Daughter wanted to swim with the Dolphins. It was way more fun and entertaining than I expected. My kids had one of the best days ever! My daughter is 11 and we did the shallow experience. I would highly recommend it to all ages. We got to take great pictures as viewers only! She loved it and the trainers... More
