Dolphins were great

Had a great time but it was to short for 200 bucks a person. I feel they need to give more time with the dolphins.

We booked a structured swim at Dolphin Cove as it was just down the road from the hotel we were saying in. We called in to ave a look the day before then telephoned to book. All very easy. I prepaid for the photographs before the swim as I knew I would want to buy them. When we arrived the... More

The people here are so sweet! Unfortunately we didn't have time in our stay to swim with the dolphins but we did stop by and they let us go watch them interact with their instructors for a few minutes! Just thought that was really awesome! You can tell how passionate they are about their job! Deff something we will be... More

I am a huge Dolphin enthusiast and on our trip we all went to swim with the dolphins. They were very well experienced and knew everything question that was asked. The dolphins were so friendly and did as asked. I am also a big fan that they stay in natural ocean water. I am not a fan of zoos that... More

Loved every minute of it! 11 years ago I swam with Alfonz and Duke (Duke is no longer there) when I was a child, I am now 21 and it was as special as the first time. At first you are educated about the dolphins by a member of staff, given the opportunity to ask any questions and then you... More

They've got a fantastic business model here and must be raking the money in. We spent around $700 for a family of four thinking that this would be a once in a lifetime experience. In the end, we were only allowed to spend 20 minutes in the water with the dolphins and we were all very disappointed. I will definitely... More

This place was not my first choice after reading reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Initial welcome by young lady in the shop was a bit cold but Jenny, who did the briefing, did an excellent job. We booked at the last minute (same day) and enjoyed the experience though the business attitude disappointed us when they refused to let... More
