Great place to learn about dolphins. The staff are gentle and knowledgeable. We first visited the destination in 2016 and again in 2017. In 2016 we swam with the dolphins and 2017 we had just dropped in for a quick visit to show the kids the dolphins after visiting the turtle farm across the road. Fantastic time for all.

We went to the 3:15 session which let us have a small group due to the fact that the cruise ship traffic had left. Awesome experience. Favorite for our island ventures.

Our family visited the "Swim with the Dolphins" or Dolphin Discovery Tour in December 2016. We could choose between having a "group" experience or a "private tour" experience. We choose the do a private tour. We were happy that we did it this way because we only 6 people in our party and it was very fun to watch each... More

One of my bucket list experiences was to swim with dolphins and this left nothing unchecked. Carlos was a fantastic trainer as he worked with Al & Luna in performing several maneuvers with us. The highlight was the foot push where two dolphins push you across the water's surface and into the air for 50-60 feet. A great experience. He... More

Truly an amazing experience! Being in the water with the dolphins was always on my bucket list and this was perfect. I am not much of a swimmer, so to be able to interact with the dolphin and not have to swim was great. The dolphins were well trained and the guides were very informative. We did it as a... More

Did the Dolphin Push, Pull and Swim Experience from Celebrity Cruises. The Dolphin was amazing, so gentle and obedient. You could see it constantly watching the trainer just waiting to be told when to go. It really seemed to be enjoying itself as much as were enjoying being with it. We had a chance to touch it, kiss it, and... More

We heard about the dolphin excursion in West Bay, and decided to check it out. What a great experience. Jose was our dolphin guide, and he was both informative and quite entertaining. Copernico and Luna, our two dolphin hosts, were incredible. So amazing to see these dolphins up close as they took you on various stunts around the lagoon. And... More

Since I as a kid, I've always wanted to swim with a dolphin (perhaps too many reruns of the old TV show Flipper). My group got to meet and swim with Richie, and he was fantastic. He was so sweet and had a great personality. His human counterparts were Marco and Carlos. Both of them were wonderful as well. They... More

Grand Cayman is a beautiful side trip (on western caribbean Celebrity cruise in Jan.) well worth the time and expense. If you love dolphins this is the venue for you (not the adventure). We lined up against a wall in the pool with a fabulous dolphin handler and Gallaleo, our pet dolphin. He entertained with flips, jumps and displays of... More
