This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest.

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.

I wouldn’t go if I wasn’t doing the dolphin swim, but that’s me personally. There’s many other things on the island to see and experience.
