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.

Not much to say, just a wonderful experience. Got towed around by two dolphins and then two of them pushed me by the feet until I flew out of the air like superman. Make sure you are on the 'Ultimate Experience' although this isn't ideal for small children

We had a wonderful time swimming with the Dolphins and snorkeling with the Rays and Nurse Sharks. The Bird enclosure was great fun! We also liked the Pirates who showed us the Nurse Sharks.

We went here recently on our honeymoon and this was our favorite excursion. Snorkeling, stingray encounter, "speed boat" ride, water slide, bird encounters (parrots, macaws, etc) are included in admission. Dolphin and shark encounters are extra. We did the shark encounter and it was worth every penny. You get to touch a shark (4 were in the exhibit), feed it,... More

What you pay for not worth it. Orientation half hour,touch dolphin twice on back,twice on stomach, and a 10 second ride. The shark show boring and you pay extra. Stingray was cool but again touch it twice.

Swimming with a dolphin was on my bucket list. Glad I did it. The rest of the 'park' is a little hokey, in my opinion. Still glad I did the dolphin swim, however.

This has always been on my "wish" list but always thought it was too much money. The resort ran an upgrade special that was too hard to pass up. So glad we went. The dolphin experience was soooo worth it! We even enjoyed going through the bird sanctuary which our initial thought was - "how lame". The birds were so... More
