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.

Hi - I have a few questions about this place: 1. is the royal swim all that much better than the regular swim? It looks like the difference is that you are with 2 dolphins in the royal swim vs 1 dolphin in the regular swim? It would be about $75 more for my family of 4 to do the royal swim. 2. how do you get the best price? I looked through the excursions list that the all inclusive resort offers and for 2 adults and 2 kids it was $672 but if I booked directly through the dolphin cove website the same dolphin swim was $372 (with a current 25% discount). that is a huge price difference. maybe b/c the resort offers transportation? So, I am wondering what was the best "deal" you can get? does the dolphin cove website ever offer more than 25% off? I swear I looked a few days ago and it was 40% off but maybe I was imagining that. this may be the one and only time we do a dolphin swim and I'm just not sure if the royal swim is that much better than the regular swim encounter. Any opinions appreciated!

I'm looking to book tickets direct through the Dolphin Cove website but noticed transport isn't included in the price. We'll be travelling from Montego Bay. Can anyone recommend transport options and the average cost I'd be looking to pay? Thanks!
