Had the pleasure of stopping in Tortola while on a cruise and I have always really wanted to swim near/with dolphins. The ride from cruise ship area was less than 10 mins and about $10. Staff at facility (especially Renee) were extremely kind and helpful. I left my credit card accidentally on the ship(mistook my room key for my credit... More

Visited during a cruise stop in Road Town on Thomson Celebration. No problem with organisation of the short journey to site. Firstly the plus side is when will I ever get another chance to interact with these beautiful creatures. The experience of touching and interacting with a dolphin was fantastic. The instructor/guide was excellent. However! Too many things wrong with... More

It was an amazing experience. We booked once we got off the ship and saved about $50 doing so. The instructors were fun and took sooooo many pictures. I would definitely go back again when I visit in the future.

This is an amazing experience and well worth the money. Our guide was Elwyn, who coached us through the whole experience. We got to hold the flippers of our dolphin, Hippo while he swam with us, be pushed along on a body board. We all got kisses and a little dance, plus other things. I felt the whole thing was... More

We had a great time at Dolphin Discovery. I will start by saying that the front desk staff if is a little coarse. Just disregard this. They weren't rude, just not as friendly as the trainers. The staff that works with the Dolphins is amazing. They are very knowledgable and helpful. They are also extremely friendly and accommodating. They want... More

Went there with our friends, had made a prior appointment with them on their site. When we got there we were all thinking "Oh No!" The walk up the driveway to go there showed a ramshackle look and faded advertisement billboard. When we entered the courtyard it was a total different look and feel which we were very happy to...
