I loved my experience at dolpin cove. The staff were excellent and I had nearly an hour with my dolpin elvis. My family were able to get right down on the key beside me for $10 each and felt totally included. We learnt a lot behind the scenes to and staff more than helpful. Well worth it more so than...

Me and a friend are travelling the USA and this was one of our highlights. We booked to interact with both the dolphins and sea lions and I am really pleased we did this. To be honest we were most excited about the dolphins, but on reflection this was the least value of both parts. Let's be honest this is... More

What an awesome experience. It was our family's first time ever doing something so adventurous and well worth it. Although pricey, the looks on my 9 and 11 years olds were priceless. Even dad that isn't a strong swimmer, the Buoyancy vest kept him afloat. If you don't have anyone taking video or pics, ,make sure you hire their photographers.... More

First let me state that I waited a couple of days before posting this review. I wanted it to settle in and make sure I felt the same way after some time passed. Also, please check some of my other reviews to gain perspective. I can't help but thinking that this fake experience is a bit of a scam. My... More

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
