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.

We very much enjoyed Dolphin Cove. My son (12) thought it was the best time every. He swam with the Dolphins. My husband and I swam and went down the huge water slide. We were pleasantly surprised to see the parrot/parakeet exhibits. I would recommend Dolphin Cove for families.

While it is rather expensive for a family to do it is worth every penny.....also "pet a shark" is worth the extra money.. funny guys ;o) ... BIG TIP: get the "JAMAICA TRAVEL SAVER CARD" which will give you lots of discounts at many places.. FIRST TO MENTION: Swim with the dolphin 2 for 1 ...card costs 20.00 and you... More

They are so loving and sweet and will entertain you every moment you spend with them. Its an experience for all ages. Young and old. It's especially good for families with young children.

Had a great trip with our guide Jermaine and driver Paul. Fun on the bus with sing songs and jokes (some were even funny😎). Dolphin Cove was a great and swimming with the Dolphins was a lifetime experience. The snorkelling was the only disappointing part of the day.

We had a 10, 8, and 3 yr old with us - there was something to do for everyone. We started out by watching the shark show - so-so. Then moved onto our dolphin encounter where you kiss, pet and play with the dolphin (good for young kids who cant swim well) and the dolphin swim where you ride the... More

Having done a similar thing in Orlando wasn't sure what to expect. This was really good value, small groups, and great interaction with the dolphin. We did the fun pull and it was great fun. My only comment is that it's all quite rushed at the cove - there's loads to see and do like the rays and the parrots... More

Great place to visit and swim with the Dolphins, you can also get it with an Eight foot nursing shark and stingrays. To buy the video costs 54 dollars and each picture is 16 dollars which I thought was very expensive, we only bought the video which only lasts 5 mins, but we still had a great time.

Wow, what a day. I took my children aged 18 & 8 years old with my parents who are resident here in Jamaica. The reason I mention this is as resident they get discounts for the normal entrance fee. So if your parents or family are living in Jamaica do not book online if there are just going to doing... More
