    It was an amazing once in a lifetime experience! It was beautiful to have an opportunity to swim with the dolphins. At Dolphin Cove they really let you SWIM with the dolphins not just see them up close or touch them from the pool edge. The dolphins seemed to be treated well although you've got to wonder with these things if that kind of environment is really healthy for them.

    Great little hideaway beach day. You come to relax or have a little fun and swim with the dolphins.

    We had a enjoyable time here and it was a memorable experience. Get there early and spend the entire day on the beach to get your monies worth.

    For those looking for that perfect getaway to spend with their families and friends, they need to look no further than Dolphins Cove. With two fantastic locations in Ocho Rios and Lucea, Dolphin Cove offers a fantastic way to spend those valuable spare moments from busy schedules. Those who search all their lives for that true “Experience of a Lifetime”, the one thing they must do before they die is visit Dolphin Cove, the Caribbean’s # 1 marine attraction. According to the BBC, ‘swimming with the dolphins is voted the number one thing people wanted to do before they die’. Be prepared to feel the urge to seal your romance as there have been several occasions of spontaneous marriage proposals that have been met with a resounding “yes”. As couples enjoy their newfound romance, parents can enjoy the look in their children’s eyes as they kiss and play with these marine mammals in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.
    Dolphin Cove is a marine park filled with exotic animals, friendly birds, and gentle stingrays. Children and parents alike will also enjoy the thrill of meeting the pirates that roam the boardwalk, going for rides on the mini boats and glass bottom kayaks, all of which will have kids talking for years to come about the best family vacation that they have ever had. The new park in Lucea has camels as an additional attraction. For the young and the old, for couples and for families, there is something for everyone at Dolphin Cove.

    Great experience. The photography process at the end of your experience is painful but overall a must thing to do experience while in Jamaica.

    Swam with the dolphins for the first time. Water was a little too cold but bearable. The shark show and swimming with sting rays was a little weak. Never got to go on the speed boat activity. Even though the staff was not very good, we still enjoyed ourselves.

    Worth every penny! Swimming with the dolphins is an unforgettable experience. The dolphins will do tricks for you and pull you through the water. I left with an awe of the amazing creatures.

    Aside from just the dolphins they have many other attractions as well. From petting and learning about rays and mini-boat tours to photos with iguanas and snakes, the staff here made it an enjoyable experience.... just bring a few extra tip dollars.
