Loved this place, pictures with the animals were awesome, and such a great experience, only downsides were there were jellyfish so couldn't swim with the stingrays, and you couldn't take your own pictures with the dolphins and they costed a fortune to buy after. other...More

Spent a fabulous day (about 5 hours) at Dolphin Cove. Started off with a very polite and friendly welcome by the staff, who were happy to answer all the questions two very excited kids needed to ask. We thoroughly enjoyed our swim with the dolphins...More

After a day visit here, you will experience all sorts of things. Price per adult is about £24.00 - that is the entry fee, if you are not wishing to do any Dolphin activities. The price goes up more each time for the dolphin experiences...More

I've always dreamt of swimming with dolphins and it could not have been more perfect. The time spent in the water with the Dolphins was so enjoyable and the hour and a half went by too quickly for my liking! I was also able to...More

Newly minted hubby and I visited Dolphin Cove today as part of our honeymoon fun. Overall, this excursion fell short of our expectations, especially for the price. We were dropped off by our resort transfer at 11am with pickup scheduled for 3pm but we were...More

This is my third time swimming with the dolphins, once at Discovery Cove in Orlando, and once in the Bahamas. The facility needs a little TLC--things are a bit faded. The dolphins were great, but I felt we were just a part of the herd...More

Loved swimming with dolphins. Completely awed us! The rest of the place was good. The avairy was great, shark show fine, & food was expensive. It's geared for tourists but I have no regrets.

Dolphin swim great. Workers rude......everyone seemed angry to be there. But great experience to swim with dolphins. Pictures are a complete rip off.....cheapest package was $70 usd. For 2 pics and a video.....way too expensive.....

My husband and I had a great time swimming with the sharks. It was the best attractions there. The slide was broken, the dolphin experience was nice. There should be better package options

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!
