We had always wanted to do the swim with dolphins and the fact that they live in natural ocean and not a pool made a big difference. They were not super organized so just be patient. Once we were in the ocean with the dolphins it was awesome. Amazing experience. We paid over internet before trip and cabbed it and... More

We loved the Dolphin Cove. We did not swim since our kids were too small, but you still get to dance with a dolphin and if you like, you can buy great, but expensice pictures. The place has a lot more to offer, such as snorkeling area, etc. We had fun there and I would recommend it to people.

I'm usually against this kind of attraction with captive animals but it was my friend's birthday and I didn't want to let her down. The start wasn't so promising: my friend had organised transport directly through the attraction. The shuttle stopped several times at different hotels and on our way there we discovered, to our horror, that the pickup time... More

We had the most amazing time here, swimming with dolphins. I was in two minds whether to come as I don't like any animal being in captivity for the sake of tourism. I tried not to think about this too much and so glad that I bought my children here. My daughter (9) sobbed because she was so happy to... More

Swimming with the dolphins was 1 of my favorite activities in Jamaica! The photographers were again phenomenal. My husband even trained a shark for an additional amount which he loved!

We were throughly impressed with the Dolphin Encounter. We got nearly an hour in the water with our dolphin, Mitch. The trainer was very informative and taught us many things about Mitch. We also enjoyed holding and meeting the Iguana and the Parrots. Our only complaints were: *the DVD of photos was insanely $$$ *the cruise ship excursion couldn't leave... More

This was my favorite swim with the dolphins. We got more time with the dolphins and it was more of a habitat that they would be more comfortable in. Everything about this experience was pretty good. The staff handled an over crowding of people due to the cruise ships coming in from hurricane mathew. It was impressive!

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and really wanted to do this. We ended up booking it, and unfortantely the day we went, it was raining, cold and not the best weather. All in all it was ok. We couldn't do anything as the beach was closed and we had to stay from 10-4pm with just watching the... More
