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.

Again, especially if you have young children who can swim, this is a must visit venue... A local taxi can take you there and most probably wait and take you back for a fixed agreed price ( definitely barter ) Advertised as wheelchair friendly but in reality it isn't close to being so, but with crutches or a stick or...

To start off I would like to say that I have not done the dolphin encounter or swimming and so this review should have absolutely no baring on that. This review is only for the show they put on on a Thursday night. I am currently reviewing this whilst on the excursion. This was advertised as a spectacular show at... More

We stayed at moon palace and there was a separate dolphin habitat on the resort. This was our first and most memorable excursion. Absolutely loved how the trainers love and take care of their dolphins. Pictures are pricey but Nicholas does a great job of capturing the moment. Andre and Jevon were friendly and energetic. I couldn't have asked for... More

The employees of that pushed you to do it. When you would say no they would then get an employee from the gift shop to stop right in front of... More
