My Family and I had a blast at the dolphin cove. I would recommend others to visit this attraction when visiting the Cayman Islands. It was money well spent. My children were amazed that they were able to kiss and touch the dolphins. They will never forget this experience! Thanks to all the great staff.

“Complete Waste of Time”
Reviewed April 6, 2010

I made reservations for this place weeks in advance. we arrived ON TIME, then proceeded to wait for almost an hour for their own boat of other tourists to arrive. Meanwhile, we had a cruise ship to get back to. Needless to say, their timing is so bad we had to get a refund - about the only thing they can do well!! I would recommend going to the other dolphin exhibit. People we talked to seemed to do fine at the other place.

Wow, we are really sorry we screwed the pouch with the transportation. We have no excuse. The team dropped the ball - and we are sorry.

Should you ever return to our little island we owe you a lobster dinner...

Again let me say sorry for the screw up.

“wonderful experience, friendly staff, expensive extras”
Reviewed March 11, 2010

I did the Ultimate swim on my recent trip to Grand Cayman and I enjoyed it very much. The trainer Justine was very friendly and informative and MJ was friendly and funny. The whole thing was over way too fast but was something I'll never forget. My husband watched and since he is not a huge dolphin lover like I am he didn't think much of it and was happy he didn't spend the money to join me. They let family members watch but from a distance and thus it is hard for them to take very good pics, undoubtedly because they take their own pics and a video to purchase. Here is where they lose points. The pictures were overpriced and there was not an option for buy multiple pics and get a discount just flat out $15 a picture. And they wanted $70 for the video, which was not even tailored to an individual but was a group video. No one from our group purchased this and I can't imagine why anyone would. Dolphins were well trained and beautiful. All in all a great experience for me.

We just returned off a seven day cruise. Our two teenage kids loved the experience, even our 16 year old son. The staff was very knowledgable and helpful with the kids.
