This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest. Visitors have the opportunity to interact and "Swim With" dolphins, enjoying the thrill and love of these amazing lovable animals. Visitors can also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks. Visitors can capture their dream of being a dolphin trainer by taking the challenge of being "Sea Keeper" for the day. Voted as Jamaica's Number One Attraction for a reason. Come for the day, for memories of a lifetime.

Loved this place, pictures with the animals were awesome, and such a great experience, only downsides were there were jellyfish so couldn't swim with the stingrays, and you couldn't take your own pictures with the dolphins and they costed a fortune to buy after. other than that awesome time.

Spent a fabulous day (about 5 hours) at Dolphin Cove. Started off with a very polite and friendly welcome by the staff, who were happy to answer all the questions two very excited kids needed to ask. We thoroughly enjoyed our swim with the dolphins Apollo and Zeus, and the dolphin trainers were great at filling us in on loads... More

After a day visit here, you will experience all sorts of things. Price per adult is about £24.00 - that is the entry fee, if you are not wishing to do any Dolphin activities. The price goes up more each time for the dolphin experiences you can have while there if you wish to. But just for the entry fee... More

I've always dreamt of swimming with dolphins and it could not have been more perfect. The time spent in the water with the Dolphins was so enjoyable and the hour and a half went by too quickly for my liking! I was also able to touch the stingrays which was very interesting! The overall visit was exciting and educational -... More

Newly minted hubby and I visited Dolphin Cove today as part of our honeymoon fun. Overall, this excursion fell short of our expectations, especially for the price. We were dropped off by our resort transfer at 11am with pickup scheduled for 3pm but we were ready to go by 1:30pm. Here are our impressions: Arriving: The operation is very unorganized.... More

This is my third time swimming with the dolphins, once at Discovery Cove in Orlando, and once in the Bahamas. The facility needs a little TLC--things are a bit faded. The dolphins were great, but I felt we were just a part of the herd that was moved through. We enjoyed Lisa the sting ray but skipped the sharks. The... More

Loved swimming with dolphins. Completely awed us! The rest of the place was good. The avairy was great, shark show fine, & food was expensive. It's geared for tourists but I have no regrets.

Dolphin swim great. Workers rude......everyone seemed angry to be there. But great experience to swim with dolphins. Pictures are a complete rip off.....cheapest package was $70 usd. For 2 pics and a video.....way too expensive.....

My husband and I had a great time swimming with the sharks. It was the best attractions there. The slide was broken, the dolphin experience was nice. There should be better package options
