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.

Newly minted hubby and I visited Dolphin Cove today as part of our honeymoon fun. Overall, this excursion fell short of our expectations, especially for the price. We were dropped off by our resort transfer at 11am with pickup scheduled for 3pm but we were ready to go by 1:30pm. Here are our impressions: Arriving: The operation is very unorganized.... More

This is my third time swimming with the dolphins, once at Discovery Cove in Orlando, and once in the Bahamas. The facility needs a little TLC--things are a bit faded. The dolphins were great, but I felt we were just a part of the herd that was moved through. We enjoyed Lisa the sting ray but skipped the sharks. The... More

Loved swimming with dolphins. Completely awed us! The rest of the place was good. The avairy was great, shark show fine, & food was expensive. It's geared for tourists but I have no regrets.

Dolphin swim great. Workers rude......everyone seemed angry to be there. But great experience to swim with dolphins. Pictures are a complete rip off.....cheapest package was $70 usd. For 2 pics and a video.....way too expensive.....

My husband and I had a great time swimming with the sharks. It was the best attractions there. The slide was broken, the dolphin experience was nice. There should be better package options

Fantastic day at Dolphin Cove. My children held exotic birds, snorkeled with stingrays, enjoyed a water slide and swam with Alex the dolphin. It was a great day. I would recommend this to other people with children. We paid about $80 US for the belly ride swim. We did a similar swim in the Dominican. We much preferred our experience... More

I've wanted to do this for a few years and finally went! I went with my boyfriend and another couple and we all really enjoyed swimming with the dolphins. We did the middle program where the dolphin pulls you and you hold on to his fins. SO FUN! All of the other animals they have there are so neat also.... More

Seriously - loved it, awesome Dolphins! Want to liberate them! They were brilliant entertainers. The whole show was great and well co-ordinated. Just feel sorry for them that they are stuck in a restricted area and have to carry (some fat) tourists on their noses.
