Overview

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.

I have never been impressed with excursions in Jamaica before Dolphin Cove. It was clean and comfortable. The facilities felt safe, the dolphins seemed happy and well-cared for, and the trainers were great hosts. I would recommend this anyone.

I wouldn’t go if I wasn’t doing the dolphin swim, but that’s me personally. There’s many other things on the island to see and experience.
