Swimming with the dolphins was awesome !

Dolphin cove was a great time. My kids were nothing but smiles. They have a cool bird sanctuary and a cool walk thru the jungle as well but swimming with the dolphins was awesome!

My husband and I were honeymooning at Sandals Ochi and the Dolphin Swim was an excursion we booked from the resort. The whole process is a well-oiled machine between Sandals and Dolphin Cove, so we had no issues getting there and back again, which was great! Dolphin Cove itself is quite a touristy place- be prepared for that! I don't... More

The dolphin encounter, and shark encounter were a lot of fun. Make sure you visit the love birds too. My wife got to swim with the nurse shark, and had a blast. Would have received 5 stars, except the photography is so overpriced it is ridiculous. Not only did I pay $180 for a cd, which would not even let... More

Again, especially if you have young children who can swim, this is a must visit venue... A local taxi can take you there and most probably wait and take you back for a fixed agreed price ( definitely barter ) Advertised as wheelchair friendly but in reality it isn't close to being so, but with crutches or a stick or...

To start off I would like to say that I have not done the dolphin encounter or swimming and so this review should have absolutely no baring on that. This review is only for the show they put on on a Thursday night. I am currently reviewing this whilst on the excursion. This was advertised as a spectacular show at... More

We stayed at moon palace and there was a separate dolphin habitat on the resort. This was our first and most memorable excursion. Absolutely loved how the trainers love and take care of their dolphins. Pictures are pricey but Nicholas does a great job of capturing the moment. Andre and Jevon were friendly and energetic. I couldn't have asked for... More
