Waht resort are you staying at? Many have scuba shops on site that will either: 1. Teach you and let you dive while there (called the resort course) or 2. Teach you and certify you (good for life, no need for any more classes)

There are also scuba shops not on the resorts that can certify you, but often the "resort course" is free at your hotel.

The only place near Montego bay offering a dolphin swim experience is at the Half Moon in Rose Hall (about 10 minutes east of Mobay). However, that attraction is open to guests of the Half Moon, only.

There is a place to swim with the dolphins on the south west part of the island (near treasure beach - black river) I am sure that there would be a taxi driver that would know. It may seem far, but its a great day trip. You can see the crocs at black river too.

Dolphin Cove is the only place to swim with dolphins. Half Moon is solely for HM guests. Dolphin cove's about 90 minutes from Montego Bay. Check out their website www.dolphincovejamaica.com

gluecipher, the dolphins you can see (or swim with) on the southwest coast (usually seen on the boat trip from Treasure Beach to Black River/Pelican Bar) are wild and free, not captive as the Dolphin Cove ones are. While you can jump in the water with them, no guarantee they'd stay.

You can certainly see them though, we cut our boat motor and they surrounded our boat, swimming under and around it for about 20 minutes, coming right up about 2 feet away to look at my kids :)
