Owner description: 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.

“Happy Birthday to me!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2015

This place was super duper fun!! My 13-year-old daughter and I went here for my birthday during our stay in Jamaica and purchased the Ultimate Swim with the dolphins...so amazing!! We purchased the Jamaica Travel Saver card in advance and then booked directly with Dolphin Cove which ensured we paid 2-for-1 which saved a lot!
Everyone who assisted or came into contact with us here were very helpful and nice and the food was really good! ...especially the festival!
We snorkeled with the sting rays, held one and swam with the dolphins...we were going to swim with the sharks as well but that was additional and after paying for the dolphin swim and picture/dvd package decided we had spent enough :-)
Dolphin Cove arranged our transportation for a fee and picked us up at our resort at 10am and we were back at our resort by 615pm....a wonderful experience!

“Swam With a dolphin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2015

Was on my bucket list. Nice park. Dolphins seemed well taken care of. Shark show was a bit cheesy. Nice beach area and a bird Avery that was cool

“Amazing experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2015

We chose to swim with the dolphins, what an experience! The place had quite a bit to do but you have to know what to expect so you can plan your day wisely. We were somewhat on a time frame so the next time we go we'll do better at managing our time. We will do this again and include the stingray and snorkeling activities. This is a great place if you're on a family vacation.

“Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2015

The catamaran ride was adventurous, the men steered the boat w/their feet and from the back. We were close to the ocean since it was a tiny boat. Be certain to see the boat before boarding especially if you are not comfortable with a lot of people on a tiny boat. Numerous folks fell ill because the waves were large and choppy.
