Overview
More
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.

The show, dolphins and facilities were basic but fine. However, they dont let you take your own photos and the cost of photos was absolute robbery. They dont have any digital only options. While they have a bunch of digital photos on their computers of...More

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.
