“Kiss a dolphin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great staff, super friendly. Trainers and aides were knowledgable about dolphins and their care. Great for friends, family trips. They offer different programs depending on budget and how comfortable you are in the water. Our daughter kissed Kimbit a young dolphin and she is absolutely thrilled! What a memory!!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

No regrets! Well worth the money. Trainers are awesome and very knowledgeable. One trainer in particular ( blonde curly hair ) was awesome. She took time after the swim to answer questions and tell us interesting facts about the dolphins. Wish I had gotten her name because she was great!

“Lots of dolphin fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great, friendly service from all the staff at Dolphin Cove. The whole experience was a delight, and there was plenty time in the water with the lovely dolphins. It is a costly game this, but in comparison to other companies, they are cheaper, so slightly better value. I don't understand why some reviewers are getting upset about observer positions near the lagoon. These are wild animals, and they deserve some space and respect. The photo service they provide is a LOT cheaper than competitors, and is a very high standard. A great day and happy memories to last a lifetime.

“fulfilled our son's dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

A terrific experience all around for our family of 4. Knowledgeable, friendly trainers who cared about the dolphins. There were several groups swimming simultaneously, but we never even noticed we were just having too much fun! Expensive, but when you consider one dolphin can eat 19 lbs of fish a day, you can see why. After your session was over you were welcome to watch the others' experiences and ask questions. If I had to make one criticism, I'd say they sell you pretty hard on the photos/CD. However, generally I never usually buy those kinds of things, but we ended up getting it because you see the sequence of reactions on your faces.

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

No regrets for the money spent here! Absolutely fantastic experience! We swam with Samantha and Isaac and they were so much fun! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There is a little informative session at the beginning and we learned so many new things about the dolphins. This is definitely a place for children (and adults too), they have so much fun and they learn so much. It is worth purchasing the photo CD - you might not always get a chance to have a full front view of your swimmers. A very unique experience, would go back anytime!!! Also very safe.
