We had a great experience at Dolphin Cove! We went to Stingray City and our captain was fabulous. When we returned for our dolphin swim with Lucy, it was the best 1 hr in the water.

Dolphin Cove is simply amazing. The trainer who was with the Dolphins was wonderful and got everyone involved. Not only did he and the two Dolphins, Reggae and Luna, entertain us, we also learned about Dolphins and their features. As a group of 4, none of us were ever left out of the fun and at the end of the... More

My husband and I were blown away with how cool the Dolphins were. The staff and trainers treat the Dolphins with love and respect and are very helpful to guests. It's an animal lovers dream! We got to kiss the Dolphins, ride along with them by holding their fins, pet them, have them sing and dance with us. It was... More

Our group included kids 9 and 10, my wife and I, and grandparents. All had a great experience. Have done dolphin experience at Atlantis and this was a level above in that you actually swim with the dolphin. Trainers very nice, professional and great with kids. Read other review-and yes, photographer there capturing event with option to purchase photos. While... More

We visited Grand Cayman as a port stop on a cruise and selected to do the Dolphin Swim and Stingray Experience excursion. Could not have been money any more well spent. This was truly the highlight of any trip I've ever been on. You do a very brief orientation and then get to go meet your dolphin. Our group worked... More

The water was very dark and murky. Things were floating in it. The dolphin encounter was fun, but I don't feel like enough time was spent with the dolphin. Everything was very fast and focused on getting pictures to sell to you at outrageous prices. There's another dolphin place in Grand Cayman that I will visit instead next time.

Although we didn't pay to play with the dolphins, there is no charge to watch and observe, so that's what we did! Great gift shop and cafe as well!

Each step of the experience was well scheduled and thought out. If it were not for the price of the photos, I would have given a 5. Way crazy prices!!

An amazing experience with the trainer, Omar, and the Dolphin, Lucy. They have an assistant who takes photos while you are in the water. We happened to have a photographer named Andrew who was absolutely lovely. Just be warned they bang you over the head when it times to pay for the photographs. Completely unreasonable. I suggest going elsewhere.
