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.

Expensive but worth the experience of being so close to the Dolphins. This is our second visit in the last 7 years and there was a lot more to do this time. Tip - If you have a Jamaican relative who has a TRN card that is willing to join you for the day then you can get some very... More

The experience, for Dolphin lovers, is a pinch me given. So, it doesn't take much to satisfy travelers looking for the thrill of swimming with these amazing creatures. But, the staff, while remaining helpful, appeared to be frustrated with having to help paying customers. They're a little unorganized, and their communication with online coupon ticket providers is non-existent. This posed... More

Dolphin Cove was amazing - lots to do and see. I highly recommend this for a day out - especially if you have kids. Food was amazing - the best jerk chicken. Dolphins, sharks, sting rays, beach, slide, parrots, boat ride - lots to do. Staff and owner were incredible to speak too. Thank you for an amazing day.

Full disclosure...We never actually got to swim with the Dolphins because they were sold out. Of course, not one of the four employees we encountered along our way to ticketing disclosed this fact. What's worse is that I specifically asked this very question since one worker was "joking" and said that they were sold out when we first arrived. When... More

Never that I would get near a dolphin or a sting ray but I did. I only did the encounter where you could pet and kiss the dolphin. The braver people had the full encounter where they swam with the dolphins. Looked like fun. Just not for me. Overall it was a fun experience.

The dolphins are incredible! Smarter than some people I know. All of the other interests along the "boardwalk" were unexpected but nice to see. Everything supplied for the swim. staff were fun.

This was a good experience for young and old. I had never been in the water with Dolphins before and this was great...the children loved it too and we was well educated on the Dolphins. They were so soft and very exciting to watch. We brought the DVD and photos..this was completed while you interact with the Dolphins so the... More
