This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest.

Our experience with the dolphins was great! Once in a lifetime! The trainers were so much fun and treated every group as if it was their one and only! They recognized how special it was for us, even though they had done it dozens of times that very day.....ONE NOT SO GOOD EXPERIENCE..... I didn't meet a single rude, aggressive,... More

We booked this through Royal Caribbean with Dunn's River Falls and lunch. The highlight was getting to kiss a dolphin!!! They had a lot to do and see at Dolphin Cove, if you want to do anything not included in your package it is expensive. It is an absolute blast!!!

I swam with the ziggy and it was amazing. It was so entertaining and the dolphins are so intelligent. It is a bit pricy but I think it is well worth the price especially as there are a lot of other things to do there.

We had to register and collect our tickets for the falls. Then back up to the driver who took us back to the falls. He dropped us... More

Dolphin Cove is great. There is a lot to see even if you don't want to get in the water. If you want to make the most of your visit expect to spend a lot of money. Dolphin Ultimate experience with 2 Dolphins plus entrance fee to the park was over $400 for 2 adults. Swimming with sharks was a... More

The animals seem very well cared for and happy. Staff are very helpful and friendly (tip where you can- minimum wage in Jamaica is $50 a WEEK). Purchasing: you can get a better deal to do this excursion by booking online and taking a taxi from your resort, or through a local tour operator. Only purchase through resort if you... More
