There is nothing like swimming in the ocean with a 9 foot long 350 lb. smiling mammal (named Leo) who seems to enjoy showing off dozens of pointy white teeth. That was probably the high point to our fabulous Florida vacation in May, 2014. We planned and reserved 2 spots and pre paid about 5 weeks in advance. At first... More

We wanted to do a dolphin swim while in the Keys, and came across Dolphin Cove. My wife had a great time, after having to switch away from some "uncooperative" dolphins. This caused a bit of a delay, but it was worth it in the end. Very positive experience. Staff was helpful and friendly.

My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday and we're both impressed and disappointed. First I was impressed bc the girl I talked to on the phone insisted that I do the earliest dolphin program followed by the sea lion encounter(I'd already told her I wanted to do both and she said this was the best way to do...

While it is expensive, the experience is worth the money. The only drawback is you do not have near as much time in the water with the dolphins as you do listening to their educational speech . But the staff is very attentive and is over the top on their kindness and their knowledge. Swimming with the dolphins was a... More

Maybe it is my inevitable mortality speaking, or a long-time wish fulfilled, but I recommend highly the experience of swimming with dolphins. These are sentient and magical creatures. If you do, the staff at Dolphin Cove are good people with whom to share. Everyone was welcoming and warm, from the office staff/greeters to the expert staff, and I felt completely... More

Went to dolphin cove with my partner we swam with Alfonso and Leo and our trainer was Taylor (I think apologies if wrong) we had an amazing time. We were greeted by the very enthusiastic Brittany and intern there over the summer. She showed us around and we had a talk with her about the dolphins which was very very... More

Hello, if you are looking for a dolphin swim, then you are right to choose Dolphin's cobe. Even as you have to pay around 200 $ for a structures swim, this will be a very exiting event for all as all the trainers take a lot of time that you will be able to interact with the dolphins. Try it... More

I'm not sure how anyone couldn't like this. I did the dolphin and sea lion swim and they both were great. It was small and private which was great. It was funny when the trainers sent dolphins over and they'd just pop up right by you. The swim was about 30 mins . The sea lion swim with wono was... More

My daughter brought me here as a birthday present. It was the first time I have swam with dolphins. In a word, the visit was AWESOME! Everyone was very nice, prices were reasonable, trainers knowledgeable, dolphins happy and well cared for. Highly recommended!
