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.

We went here while on Ocho Rios. One of my best experiences in Jamaica swimming and interacting with the dolphins. Staff were extremely friendly and professional. Loved it.

You had plenty of interactions with the dolphins. Trainers really knew about the dolphins as living creatures and as individuals. There's more to do there too. A nice beach, a walking trail with parrots and iguanas. Food selection is limited, but that's not what you go there for.

This half-day or even one day excursion is a must see. You can wander around the rainforest like jungle and see plenty of animals, get into the bird cages to get swarmed by small parrots and pet sharks in the shallow waters. The main attraction though is the dolphin swim. You have various packages and all of them are great... More

The price of this place has either dropped, or stayed static in real terms for five years - either way it feels cheaper than it used to be. The Royal Swim is a must-do. You get more personal time and a much more intimate experience than the other experiences - I've done it once and my wife just tried it... More

So much fun. We did the dolphin swim and one of the best experiences I've ever had. You can also do a camel ride and feed the ostriches. Will definitely be back.

On our visit to Jamaica I bought my wife a royal swim package at dolphin cove Montego Bay. Over all it was a fun time, but.... when we got there apparently the nets were torn down in the main water area from a storm and my wife and about 30-40 other people had to do the activities in a very...

We appreciated this attraction, again, for the people. My daughter absolutely loved the "Love Bird" attraction. The guy in there named Rahme (Ra-mee)--was so sweet, helpful, and knowledgeable. He really helped attract the birds to everyone that wanted that kind of interaction with the love birds, but was especially patient and kind to my kid that wouldn't leave!! :) Thank... More

In addition to the dolphin encounter, which we thoroughly enjoyed, my daughter really loved handling the animals (iguanas and parrots) and we had a fantastic mini speedboat trip to the Dunns River shoreline; all included in the entry ticket from Thomson.
