What a great time! We got to get up close to the dolphins. At first we get to rub the dolphins backs and bellies as they swam by. Then we get to hang onto their fins and they pulled us through the water, belly to belly with the dolphin. Then, we all got to have the dolphin push us through... More

Beautifull experience. We went there because of kids, but to be honest we elder enjoyed it a lot. Swiming with dolphins is once in a lifetime experience, and stingrays are abolutely fantastic. Try to negotiate price of pictures before starting the event. We got pictures with dolphins and from stingray city for 120$ (asked price was 250$). But you have... More

We went to Dolphin Cove fully expecting to be rescheduled since swimming in any body of water when there is lightening is known to be dangerous. However, we were told the event was not cancelled.

We did this on a cruise and it was the highlight! Stingray city was so fun! And swimming with the dolphins was amazing. Pictures are outrageously expensive $400 for 4 people. We took a water camera to the stingrays but paid $70 for 2 pics with the dolphins. Staff and boat were all excellent. Lifetime of memories!
