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.

travelled with another family and we thoroughly enjoyed riding with the dolphins. It was so thrilling to have the doplhins swim so closely yet them be so gentle. Holding onto their fin and being lifted into the air by them was surreal. My daughter couldnt stop talking about it days after. The other facilities on the property were fun too.... More

Coming from the Montego bay area this was initially a hour drive. Once we got there the desk staff were disorganized and unhelpful. We had to show them an email they sent to us to prove we signed and paid for this excursion. since we didnt come apart of a cruise group there was no one to tell us where... More

I wasn't going to do this as it was really a treat for my daughters (9 and 12) but I'm so glad I changed my mind. Swimming with these amazing creatures was a real thrill! I was a bit worried about the conservation aspect of this but all animals are well looked after and Dolphin Cove really make an effort... More

Smaller scale. 1 nurse shark, and 4 sting rays. No more than 8 dolphins, no show per say. Just an encounter, or swimming with them.

Swimming with the dolphins was a great experience, not to be missed, better to have the full package and go for the deluxe package.

Dolphin cove was very nice and my first contact was breathtaking, but it was all for the cruise liner people and if you want a pic close up of you and the Dolphins you have to buy them as your not allowed to get close to take your own pics. Apart from that it is a nice place to visit

Pleasant and relaxed surroundings. Although I didn't swim with the dolphins the children did and had unforgettable fun. The dolphins are huge gentle friendly darlings. They are well trained and so are the handlers. While I waited i enjoyed the side shows handlers had with the sharks and sting rays. Several species of birds Beautiful, entertaining and amusing they all... More
