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.

We came to Dolphin Cove as part of tour package offer. It was amazing! The trainer was really great and you'll get to spend quality time in the water with the dolphin - Misty. She is really loving and looks to be well taken care of! The facility is quite safe. We didn't lock our stuff while doing dolphin swim... More

We did the Encounter program as due to my son's age we only pay the adult rate for the two of us. It worked out very well. The Dolphins were a great experience and it was just enough hands on for a 3 year old. The jungle walk and being able to feed and hold the various animals and birds... More

Getting the opportunity to see a dolphin up close is awesome. My four year old was so excited about getting to do this. Everything else at Dolphin Cove underwhelmed. The food and drinks are expensive. The photo package for the dolphin experience is really expensive (cameras are not allowed at the dolphin encounters). The beach is rocky and small. You... More

I cannot fault the whole end to end experience, the trainers were very attentive and the whole interaction thing was great. Also the rest of the cove was interesting too -... More

I hated that the cost of food and beverage was so expensive but given it was a tousist attraction that was expected. Also, the beach wasn't fun... More

We booked this day out though our travel rep and what can i say it was amazing day out. We paid for a Encounter with dolphin and it was so worth it. After our time with ziggy the dolphin we got to do snorkelling with sting rays for free and watch the shark show. Afterwards we walked around the jungle... More
