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.

Was picked up at the hotel by Jermaine and Kevin, the driver. Jermaine was the guide and gave us a great overview of Jamaica on the hour drive to the Cove. Once there, we found plenty of things to do to keep busy before we swam with the dolphins. Loved hanging out at the coconut shack with the rastafarian guy... More

Everything about this place was great until the birds landed all over me. The food wasn't good but everything else was amazing.

swimming with dolphins, ladies getting your hair done and watching a man eat light bulbs all in the same place. Reasonable priced and if you don't want to swim you can watch from dry land and still enjoy yourself.

Be very careful about the prices on offer at resorts - transport is not included. Big drawback photography is banned, so only their expensive photos are available (US$80 for two or a DVD for US$280). Rather takes one's breath away.

we purchased the dolphin swim excursion from our hotel rep, and all in all we had a great time. The dolphin swim was great, the Dolphins were fun, the trainers were helpful and the whole experience was very ooh la la. The only downside was that everywhere you turned someone was asking for more money, not that that isn't everywhere... More

We were on a cruise ship that booked shore excursions with Dolphin Cove. The facility was really an awesome experience. Our family of four (10 year old and teen), participated in the dolphin touch experience. We lined up in knee-high water with some other people and we each got to pose for pictures while we touched and kissed the Dolphin.... More

Great trip, dolphins were amazing and their trainers fantastic. Best bit was watching them do tricks and jumping through the air. Photos expensive though!

Well worth the money. An experience Of a lifetime! Just make sure you don't go when the cruise ships come in as it is very crowded.

Dolphin cove is probably one of the nicest places to have an encounter with dolphins. There are three options, differing in the type of encounter. One negative point is that taking your own pictures is almost impossible since visitors have to stay on the board walk, far away from the encounter.
