I pre booked and prepaid for this excursion. There were 6 of us, four adults and two teenagers. We were coming from a cruise and I booked this separately which is highly recommended and a lot cheaper. We actually walked from the ship. It was a hot walk, about a mile, but doable. We were in the water for around... More

The Dolphin experience is run by a Mexican based company with facilities all over the Caribbean. The Dolphin swim and behaviours are well executed however the price gouging comes with the photo’s and that leaves a bit of a bad taste.

This experience was fun but not worth the money. My friends and I got the upgrade and thought is that all there is? It was all very scripted and yes we know the dolphins are trained to do their act, but we thought we would be spending more time swimming with them. Very restricted area. We also thought the time...

We visited Tortola on a cruise. We booked direct with Dolphin Discovery and saved $$$ There are cabs available as soon as you get off the ship about $5 pp. The facility in over crowded and not at all organized. Reserve an early time. The facility is clean and the dolphins are well cared for. I was a little apprehensive... More

We went on this excursion from our NCL Escape cruise. They were very organized. From pick up at the docks to informational class to start to the return back. The experience with the dolphins was fantastic! We got to touch, kiss, be kissed, belly ride on a dolphin and get a foot push ride from the dolphin! And more. The... More

This tour was ok, however it can be purchased for a lot less on the Dolphin Discovery website. You just have to get your own transportation which is not hard to do on Tortola. I will review the purchased excursion through NCL including transportation since that is what we did. We assembled at the pier at 7:20 in the morning... More
