Dolphin Cove was a wonderful family experience!

I would highly recommend swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove. The dolphins are incredibly intelligent & the trainers were very informative & fun.

We were traveling with our 5 year old grandaughter. She loved being able to touch the dolphin and "dance" with him also. The whole experience was just wonderful. I would do it again if the opportunity arises.

We took this tour last year and our grandchildren/family loved it. We returned this year with family plus friends to an even better experience. Captain Eddie did a terrific job in explaining what to expect and how best enjoy the experience. He and his crew were excellent in managing our experience with the sting rays in the water. They made... More

We did this as part of day excursion during a carnival cruise. The experience was outstanding. The facilities were very nice, the staff was very professional and we would recommend the Dolphin Cove & Sting Ray City to anyone visiting Grand Cayman.

While in the Cayman Islands, my wife wanted to swim with dolphins. I wasn't too ecstatic about the idea but am glad that I went! The facility was top-notch and the staff were incredible. (Be advised though that you can't take your cameras and jewelry out in the water with the dolphins. They do however take an abundance of photos... More

Our family of 4 with two girls under the age of 11 visited Grand Cayman for the first time last week. We were delighted with our Stingray and Dolphin encounters at Dolphin Cove. Must admit I, as a Mother, was a bit nervous on the boat ride out to see the Stingrays. The guides were excellent in explaining the history... More

We visited Cayman last week for the first time since the dolphin attractions were established. I am SO glad that we checked both of them out and took the time to read the reviews, especially as this is not a cheap venture. When I found that one had pools and the other was in a cove in the dolphins' natural... More

We just got back from Cayman and my daughter wanted to swim with the dolphins so badly. We chose Dolphin Cove based on reviews and it was the right choice. We started the day with a trip to Stingray City with Dolphin Cove. The crew on the boat were fantastic: friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Stingray City is an absolute must!... More
