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.

Always wanted to do this and was not disappointed. Was concerned that due to a large group we would only have 5 minutes with the dolphin but that was not the case. We were in with them for quite a while and the trainer gave us information about our dolphin and others. Only had to wear a safety jacket and... More

We have just got back from Jamaica and done the dolphin swim. I like that they are actually in sea water areas and not in tiny pools. We did enjoy the encounter and are glad we did do it. I am a big animal lover and do have adopted wild life animals that I've been adopting for years. So if... More

This was a great experience. Although I didn't swim with the dolphins this time I had the encounter where you can touch it and take a picture. There are also a few other things you can do while you're there; see the sharks, speed boat, visit the other animals (birds, snakes, rabbits etc). There is also a small restaurant onsite... More

Was picked up at the hotel by Jermaine and Kevin, the driver. Jermaine was the guide and gave us a great overview of Jamaica on the hour drive to the Cove. Once there, we found plenty of things to do to keep busy before we swam with the dolphins. Loved hanging out at the coconut shack with the rastafarian guy... More

Everything about this place was great until the birds landed all over me. The food wasn't good but everything else was amazing.

swimming with dolphins, ladies getting your hair done and watching a man eat light bulbs all in the same place. Reasonable priced and if you don't want to swim you can watch from dry land and still enjoy yourself.
