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.

While it is rather expensive for a family to do it is worth every penny.....also "pet a shark" is worth the extra money.. funny guys ;o) ...

BIG TIP: get the "JAMAICA TRAVEL SAVER CARD" which will give you lots of discounts at many places.. FIRST TO MENTION: Swim with the dolphin 2 for 1 ...card costs 20.00 and you instantly save US$ 149.00 .... if you need more info send me an email to jheili99@hotmail.com ... I was skeptic,bought it anyways and it worked... card is good for 6 month and can be ordered from USA,Canada and even while in Jamaica...

“An experience you will NEVER forget”
Reviewed 10 August 2015

This is a must at least once in your lifetime. Being so up close with these amazing dolphin's is something you will never forget. They are so loving and sweet and will entertain you every moment you spend with them. Its an experience for all ages. Young and old. It's especially good for families with young children. We are going back to JA next week and I plan to do it again.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 9 August 2015

Had a great trip with our guide Jermaine and driver Paul. Fun on the bus with sing songs and jokes (some were even funny). Dolphin Cove was a great and swimming with the Dolphins was a lifetime experience. The snorkelling was the only disappointing part of the day.

Reviewed 8 August 2015 via mobile

We had a 10, 8, and 3 yr old with us - there was something to do for everyone. We started out by watching the shark show - so-so. Then moved onto our dolphin encounter where you kiss, pet and play with the dolphin (good for young kids who cant swim well) and the dolphin swim where you ride the dolphin belly in addition to the encounter stuff. Lunch was fantastic and we also went on a speedboat and saw mick Jagger's old home which is now the owner of sandals resorts home - 14mil USD. Pretty neat! Must see!
